We like Nosy Be because it has remained refreshingly unspoilt and is free of rampant development, with low-key beach bungalows outnumbering the glitzy commercial resorts. Most visitors relax on idyllic beaches, go swimming or snorkelling in the calm azure waters and enjoy seafood feasts at oceanfront restaurants, but if you enjoy sightseeing, it’s worth paying a visit to the bazaar in Hell-ville to pick up samples of fragrant spices as Nosy Be is nicknamed ‘The Perfume Island’. Don’t miss the lush rainforests of the Lobeke nature reserve as well as the coral reefs skirting the coast offer phenomenal scuba diving opportunities, while a peppering of surrounding islets make for enchanting day trips.
The best time to visit Nosy Be is during the dry season, from May until September/October. Even though you pick out a dry period, there isn’t a week in Madagascar without any rain. Madagascars weather is generally humid.
Madagascar has many different climate zones. This makes the landscape very diverse: from the fertile highlands to the dry south, and from rainforest to tropical coastal areas and idyllic beaches with many sailing, diving and snorkeling opportunities. Every year, humpback whales look for the rich underwater world during their migration. This ‘red island’, as Madagascar is also called, houses a dozen beautiful nature parks. It contains many endemic flora and fauna: plants and animals that only occur in Madagascar. A part of it lives nowhere else in the world, like many species of half apes, reptiles (including chameleons), orchids, palms, not to mention some species of the sacred baobab tree. The island is also a paradise for birdwatchers. Rice is grown on a large scale and you can even find tea plantations. In Madagascar you are in all respects between Asia and Africa. ‘A continent in itself’.
