The Islands & Beaches of Madagascar, Madagascar

Madagascar is fringed by a number of beautiful islands.

Nosy Be is the best known, a relatively developed place with a number of boutique hotels. Though you can find quiet corners of Nosy Be, we prefer the sleepier islands such as Ile Sainte Marie on the east coast, Nosy Komba off northern Madagascar, or the private islands of Tsarabanjina and Nosy Iranja.

Deserted beaches

On these islands it is easy to Madagascar’s Islands find deserted beaches with soft sand and clear water. Ghost crabs scuttle across the sand and - particularly in the north - frigate birds can be seen soaring overhead. Many of the islands have villages on or nearby and you become accustomed to the daily sight of dhows sailing past, filled with thatching palms, grain and cows until they float just inches above the water. In villages breadfruit trees shade bamboo huts and zebu cattle graze in the fields.

Activities

The islands are perfect for relaxing after the adventurous experience of Madagascar’s rainforests. Flights go regularly from Antananarivo to Ile Sainte Marie while even more fly to Nosy Be, from where boats reach Nosy Komba, Tsarabanjina and Nosy Iranja. Once on the islands, days can be spent snorkelling and diving, pottering around on a bicycle or just lying on the beach.
