Traveling with family in Martinique

  Discover the fauna and flora of Martinique

  • Go hiking

With young children, it is recommended to take short hikes. The Trace des Caps in Sainte-Anne lasts about 1h30. However, it is better to count on 2 hours of walking with children. For the more courageous, there is also the Presqu'île de la Caravelle trail, which also lasts 1h30. Be sure to take precautions against the sun if you go for a walk. Indeed, most of the paths are not shaded.

Discover the Jardin de Balata, open every day. It has a sublime garden with a suspension bridge, where hummingbirds fly in the middle of a floral diversity.

In the heart of the island, take a walk in the tropical gardens of some distilleries, notably the one of Habitation Clément in François. You can also take a traditional steam train to discover the domain of the Saint-James factory in Sainte-Marie.

You can also visit the zoo of Martinique, with a stroller, and discover many animals.

An exceptional aquatic universe

Discover the numerous beaches of the island

In Martinique, there are many beaches suitable for children. The most beautiful and the least agitated are in the south of the island. The most famous and shallowest places are : 

- the beach of Pointe Marin in Sainte-Anne

- the beach of Grande Anse in Anses d'Arlet

- the beach of Anse Figuier in Sainte-Luce.

As on the majority of the beaches of the island, you will be able to benefit from the shade of the trees, other than the Fromager tree, to relax. Many snacks and restaurants are located near these beaches and you can go there with your family.

Swimming in rivers and waterfalls

You can also cool off in the waterfalls and rivers of Martinique. With children, we recommend the site of Coeur Bouliki in Saint-Joseph which has mini bridges and educational panels for the little ones. 

For the more adventurous families, go to the Cascade Couleuvre in Prêcheur. After a 1 hour walk, a splendid swim awaits you, in the heart of a wonderful landscape.

 Which vehicle to choose ? 

To take advantage of your vacation and leave without worries, we recommend a family car like Dacia Duster or Renault Captur. This car will be able to hold all your luggage and provide the necessary comfort for your trips.

Large families? Europcar Martinique also has 7 and 9-seater vehicles. Book your rental car now to travel all over the island and enjoy your stay with your family. You will also like our article : Traveling with a baby in Martinique
