Lunch under the straw huts on the beach. Snorkeling, swimming, walking. The ultimate cool day!

Evening on board downwind of the island.

  • Distance: 15 nautical miles

Day 3: Nosy Iranja > Nosy Tanikely > Nosy Komba

Long route today, and therefore an early start, perhaps before sunrise. 

We pass near the Pain de Sucre and south of Ankazoberavina. Direction due east towards the small island of Nosy Tanikely. This site is one of the marine parks of Madagascar. Swimming and relax. The boat is equipped with fins – mask and snorkel to discover corals, fish and turtles.

Day 4: Nosy Komba > Nosy Faly

This morning we disembark in the village of Ampangorinana, the capital of Komba. There are no cars or scooters here. It is a fishing village that lives to the rhythm of the tides and the few tourists who come for a walk. Small shops sell local crafts, embroidered tablecloths. Behind the village, macaco lemurs share the life of the inhabitants. We go to meet them.

Lunch in a small local restaurant. The meal will be based on fish, seafood and coconut rice.

Navigation to Nosy Faly.

Night on board between the peninsula and the island.

Before arriving at our destination, we pass very close to the “4 Frères”, rocks in the shape of beautiful breads of sugar, guardians of the Mitsio.
