Wildlife of Nosy Mitsio Archipelago
Skimming over the water you often glimpse bottlenose dolphins and green turtles but the arrival is even more breathtaking, as you slow among 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 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.
