The Department of Environment & Coastal Resources (DECR) would like to remind all current, and prospective, National Park Users that a National Park License is required to undertake any commercial activity within a protected area. 


The DECR would also like to take this opportunity to remind hotel and resort establishments that under Section 4(1)(a) of the National Parks Ordinance (Ordinance 11 of 1975, as amended), an area which is designated as a national park shall be open to members of the public for recreational use, including camping, fishing (within designated fishing zones) and sailing.


 The DECR would like to urge all commercial users to ensure that their licenses are up-to-date, to avoid any penalties related to operating a business in a national park without a valid National Park License.                  

Please contact the department for clarifications pertaining to the above matters at Tel. 338-4170 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
