NosyBe Travel Guide

by our Madagascar expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryA beautiful island off the western coast of Madagascar in the Mozambique Channel (‘nosy’ is the Malagasy word for island while ‘be’ simply means big). It is a volcanic island, with a central peak - no eruptions in many years - with some nature reserves and interesting wildlife like the main island. As a tourist destination, however, it is mostly regarded as a whole-holiday beach resort region or as a perfect wind-down extension to activity in the incredible natural resources of Madagascar or even mainland east Africa. Huge sandy beaches, terrific diving/snorkelling facilities, other watersports, get-around bike hire, take an ocean dhow trip; plus a good selection of accommodation and restaurants (remember this was French colonial territory so brush up your French). You can fly in direct from Europe or make a short hop from the capital Antananarivo.
