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.
