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!

Baie d’Antogil and the channel separating Ile Sainte Marie from the mainland are considered among the best whale-watching sites in Madagascar.
