Enjoy a trip to the turquoise waters of Nosy Be and to meet the lemurs up-close at Andasibe National Park.
Nosy Be’s is Madagascar’s biggest and most popular tourist destination and it’s easy to understand why – located off Madagascar’s northwestern coast, this small island is blessed with exquisite sand beaches, glittering volcanic lakes and diverse flora and fauna. What’s more, despite its popularity, Nosy Be has remained refreshingly unspoilt and free of rampant development, with low-key beach bungalows more the order of the day here than glitzy commercial resorts. Most visitors are content to do very little except relax on the idyllic beaches, go swimming or snorkelling in the calm azure waters and enjoy seafood feasts at oceanfront restaurants, but if you fancy a bit of sightseeing, it’s worth paying a visit to the bazaar in Hell-ville – where you can pick up samples of the fragrant spices for Nosy Be is nicknamed ‘The Perfume Island’ – and exploring the lush rainforests of the Lobeke nature reserve. Coral reefs skirting the coast offer phenomenal scuba diving opportunities, while a peppering of surrounding islets make for enchanting day trips.
