Nosy Be is an island off the North West coast of Madagascar. Known to be the touristy part of the island, it holds the award for excellent beaches, snorkeling, and diving.
With its broad white sand beaches and turquoise teal water, this town is a beautiful resting spot for tourists during the day.
Most hotels or rental apartments are located right on the beach, offering brilliant views of sunsets, sunrises, and the occasional traditional sailboats floating by.
Tip: Gerard and Francine- located on the far end on the beach, last hotel before the cliffs. Great place to stay, owned by a French couple who will greet you with open arms. Wonderful papaya and pineapple juice breakfasts accompanied by homemade baked bread. Wake up indulging breakfast with your feet in the sand.
Tip: great Malagasy food at "Chez Maman". small two table restaurant located 200 meters from Gerard and Francine's Hotel. Try the traditional northern cuisine- Poisson Coco. Fish cooked in a coconut sauce, delicious.
