Nosy Be is the largest island in an extensive archipelago, which lies off the northwest coast of Madagascar and is developing a reputation as one of the world’s top island paradise locations.

Wonderful tropical climate, gleaming white palm-fringed beaches and colourful coral reefs all add to its ’experience’. From Nosy Be you can visit nearby islands such as Nosy Tanikely, Nosy Vorona, Nosy Iranja and Nosy Tsarabajina

Tanikely is a small marine reserve island with fabulous snorkelling; Komba is a sanctuary for black lemurs, and Iranja and Tsarabajina are remote jewels for the discerning traveller. There is also the Lokobe Reserve nature trail, on southeast Nosy Be. The islands can be visited all year except during February and March, when the rains are at their peak.
