The Best Activities in Madagascar

The Best Activities in Madagascar

Madagascar will be of great interest to any bird lover out there! The island boasts over 250 species of bird, including many waterbird species. We believe that Madagascar holidays and vacations are best spent exploring the island, visiting the attractions, shopping and trying your hand at some activities such as snorkelling, fishing, kayaking, bird watching and so much more… These are our favourites and our ‘must do’s

Discovering the Underwater Beauty

Diving or snorkelling in Madagascar with the tropical fish and the rare turtles is a definite highlight when travelling here on holiday. The best times to snorkel and dive in Madagascar are between Dec and April. For snorkelling, Nosy Tanikely is great and for diving Tulear, Nosy Be and Sainte Marie are ideal! Either way snorkelling or diving in Madagascar is something that should not be missed!


Catching that Wave

Surfing has become more and more popular in Madagascar as the islands offer amazing waves and some secluded surf spots with breaks that are famous worldwide. For all the surfing enthusiasts out there Madagascar is an exciting, untouched and affordable place to go… Tulear and Fort Dauphin are the most popular spots for surfing in Madagascar.

Sighting the Majestic Whales

Baie d’Antogil and the channel separating Ile Sainte Marie from the mainland are considered among the best whale-watching sites in Madagascar. It’s estimated that approximately 1000 whales visit Madagascar each season, a truly spectacular sight. Whale watching in Madagascar is a very special experience and if you have the time we highly recommended it!
