Nosy Be holidays

Lying off the northwest coast, Nosy Be and its surrounding tropical islands have become Madagascar’s number one holiday destination. The area is easily accessible and is popular with visitors who are drawn to its beaches, fine coral reefs and its island hopping prospects. On Nosy Be itself, head to Lokobe Reserve to observe lemurs and search for chameleons and visit quaint villages where local stalls sell everything from spices and seafood to lace tablecloths and other local handicrafts.

A short boat ride from Nosy Be is Nosy Komba, a small volcanic island where visitors can see the black lemur at really close quarters and observe the troop behaviour at Lemur Park.

Nosy Tsarabanjina is a small, mountainous island, with rare birds, luxuriant vegetation, and white sand beaches, surrounded by coral reefs and Nosy Iranja is a small peaceful island inhabited by fishermen. It is an important breeding reserve for hawksbill turtles and is about two hours by boat from Nosy Be.

Nosy Saba is a small sandstone island with picturesque white sandy beaches and jungle containing a variety of lemur and bird species
