The village of Point Michel stands on a raised delta of volcanic debris formed by pyroclastic flows from the Morne Plat Pay volcano.
It was first inhabited by Amerindian people from South America, the last group being the Kalinago (Caribs).
Their village was on the flat land behind the present Roman Catholic Church where remains of their pottery have been found.
