Wildlife of Nosy Mitsio Archipelago

The Nosy Mitsio Islands, MadagascarSkimming over the water you often glimpse bottle nosed dolphins and green turtles but the arrival is even more breathtaking, as you slow amongst tiny tropical islands, lush with tropical vegetation and necklaced with powder-white beaches. Few parts of Madagascar suffer from any light pollution and this is no exception: at night the stars glitter brightly over the water.

The archipelago is made up of about a dozen islands. La Grande Mitsio is the largest island with the small farming villages of Antakarana and Akalava. Tsarabanjina is beautiful with volcanic rocks, palms and badamier trees and four gently shelving beaches.

Nosy Ankarea

Nosy Ankarea is surrounded by coral reefs while Les Quatres Freres is made up of four imposing silver basalt rocks, covered by hundreds of nesting seabirds including brown boobies, northern gannets, frigate birds and white-tailed tropic birds.
