This long, narrow island off Madagascar’s east coast might be just the piece of heaven you’re looking for. Also known as Nosy Boraha, its lush islets, bays and coves will provide the same privacy and mystique they did for the legendary pirates that held out here after their plunders in days gone by. The waters are endowed with significant coralline growth and offer first-class diving; or if you prefer being ‘onboard’, take a traditional pirogue ride in the calm bays – from July you can witness the migration of substantial groups of humpback whales. And for history lovers, a visit to the pirates’ cemetery of Saint-Pierre is a must.
The four star Princess Bora Lodge offers discerning guests comfortable accommodation in a totally unspoilt environment, there is also an excellent restaurant offers a selection of French, Malagasy and European cooking. The activity centre will assist with a selection of island tours as well as snorkelling, PADI dive centre, water-skiing, windsurfing and fishing.
