Based on a spatial model, the Martinique beaches and coastal wetlands are examined to identify the risks of coastal squeeze. In many cases coastal development prevents coasts from adapting to increased erosion rates by shifting landward. Also tourism infrastructure augments the vulnerability of beach reduction and mangrove squeeze. The majority of coastal constructions and especially tourist hotels are built within the zone at risk to flooding and erosion. Spatial analysis based on a conducted GIS model is carried out that evaluates the tourist destinations most vulnerable to the impacts of sea level rise. If sea level rises and beach reduction becomes an increasing problem the attractiveness of Martinique beaches as a tourist destination is likely to decline.
