Antsiranana means ‘Where There is Salt', although it's also spelt Antseranana (‘Where There is a Port). The town is commonly known as Diego Suarez, or simply Diego. This Madagascar town has a lot to offer on a Madagascar tour as Diego Suarez is filled with hidden secrets, hidden gems and fantastic fun!
In the late 19th century, the French established a naval base here, which remained until 1973. Today Antsiranana is a provincial capital, an important port, and northern Madagascar's main town.
