Camping is widely available on the island of Martinique, but it's also strongly regulated by local governments from location to location around the island.
Camping is available from June 24 through September 30 almost anywhere on the island, in both forests and on beaches. However, travelers should avoid what Martinique has termed "indiscriminate" camping.
Travelers in and around Sainte-Anne may camp at either Cap Chevalier or - on the beach - at Salines.

Eco-tourism is also available, though it's less organized than the camping. Travelers looking for ecologically-oriented stays and activities will be able to choose from a wide variety of hiking and biking adventures, snorkeling and scuba diving outings, and island tours. Because of the rich natural diversity, Martinique is a great place for nature lovers to tour. Click here to read more about Martinique's nature sites.
Campers can find a spot to pitch their tent year round, though most will close in the off-season.
