Bordered by magnificent beaches and well-known for tourist trips – but there’s much more to Martinique! There are all manner of activities to enjoy as the island offers so many possibilities to its visitors. There is hiking on Mount Pelée, along the mountain tracks or on the coast, discovery Safaris, a multitude of waterfalls and rivers, diving, boardsports and sea and land trips to discover the fauna and flora. Boat excursions take you around the island… not to mention horse riding, deep-sea fishing or dolphin and whale viewing and discovering the mangrove … you will never have enough time on one stay to do it all!
The Islands of Martinique offer wonderful diving opportunities in certain well-known spots. With flippers and a mask you will start your exploration in just a metre of water. Just off the beach or further away on the coral reefs, you can be accompanied by guides who are passionate about diving.
From 30 mins to more than 12 hours, hikers will be spoilt for choice with a broad selection of routes in the mountains or by the sea.
Kitesurfing & Windsurfing
With regular trade winds during 8 months of the year and perfectly calm water… in short, ideal conditions for kitesurfing and windsurfing…
Although there are few of them, the surfing spots have a very good reputation.
You need a licence to drive a jet ski alone, as its use is regulated. You will find several companies offering excursions supervised by qualified instructors to help you overcome this obstacle.

Sea excursions: there are very many possibilities for sea excursions.
Rent a boat for an afternoon to view dolphins or whales, or for a few days of coastal navigation.
