Nosy Sakatia is a small island just off the west coast of Nosy Be offering unspoilt tropical fauna and flora. It is only 6.5 km long and 2 km wide at its widest point, and has a current population of only around 450 inhabitants. There are no roads and only foot paths, so people can wonder and explore its beauty and deserted beaches at their own leisure. The island is fringed by spectacular coral reef and is a great spot for snorkellers and divers.
Sakatia Lodge caters for up to 26 guests and has 4 large Ocean Bungalows with verandas, sea view, bathroom with shower and separate toilet. There are also 4 smaller Nature Bungalows, with en-suite bathroom with shower and toilet. For families, the lodge has one 2-bedroom Beachfront (Madiro) Bungalow, with veranda, two single beds and one double bed, bathroom shower and toilet. There is also 1 Beach Villa with three bedrooms, which is also ideal for families or groups.
The food at the lodge is excellent and the hands-on owner, Jose Vieira, makes sure guests have a good stay. Diving and snorkelling are the big draw here, but other activities including game fishing, horse riding on Nosy Be, quad biking on Nosy Be, village trips, exploring Nosy Sakatia by Pirogue boat, and trips to Nosy Tanikely and Nosy Komba can also be organised.
