The ideal time to stay in Nosy Be is between April and December. The temperature is constantly between 26° C and 28° C. Discover this aquatic world by boat or from inside the water, equipped with fins, mask and snorkel.
You can reach this destination by air, taking a regular Air Madagascar flight, or by land. By opting for the latter, plan 18 hours for the trip from Antananarivo through Ambanja and Ankify before eventually ferrying over.
The Nosy Be Hotel Resort & Spa complex, the Vanilla Hotel & SPA and the Home Residence are highly recommendable.
Nosy Be Hotel's restaurant and spa specializes in fresh organic cuisine. Also try "Chez Nono" or "The Ravinala Restaurant".
The Nosy Be shores are frequented no less than 8 species of dolphins, which can be seen all year long. Likewise, many turtles have taken up residence around the different islands of the archipelago: green turtles, which can measure 1.5 m and weigh up to 250 kg and hawksbill turtles, in danger of extinction, can be observed at the Tanikely Marine Reserve. Last not least, between October and December, many Manta rays and Mobula rays amaze viewers with their majestic brooms underwater or on the surface.
