Nosy Be: a true island paradise

exploration

Easily accessible from the mainland of Madagascar, Nosy Be, with its beautiful beaches and diving spots, is an enchanting island.

This tropical paradise—dotted with turquoise lagoons, long beaches of golden sand where lush vegetation abounds, and a volcanic relief spread throughout with lakes—is just a stone's throw from the northwest coast of Madagascar. The island of Nosy Be is a destination in itself and one of the most beautiful islands off the African continent, with a permanent blue sky as a backdrop.

The rural culture of the island, which is both mixed and multicultural, permeates the atmosphere during your strolls amidst the sugar cane, pepper, and ylang-ylang plantations, the refined scent of the latter giving Nosy Be its nickname of ‘Perfume Island'. The charm also operates in Hell-Ville, the capital of the island, where the market stalls contrast with old colonial mansions. But the secret of Nosy Be is its string of islands: Nosy Komba, Nosy Tanikely, Nosy Faly, Nosy Sakatia, and Nosy Iranja are all dens of marine fauna and lemurs.
