MADAGASCAR - Luxury summer vacation

With 1,800 miles of beautiful beaches, palm-fringed shoreline, numerous islands and coral reefs, Madagascar has a variety of options for those wishing for more...

Whilst Madagascar’s wildlife may be the main draw, the 1,800 miles of secluded coastline and idyllic beaches that surround the island are the perfect place to relax – whether your focus is a beach holiday or if you would prefer to combine wildlife with a few days of relaxation at the end of your holiday. 
At the coast, the edges of the tropical rainforests meet with warm golden sands, and turquoise waters lap onto the palm-fringed shores – and in certain areas, such as Ifaty, you are able to combine beach with wildlife without travelling far at all! 

The laid-back coastal lifestyle is perfect for those seeking a tranquil escape while the continued immense biological diversity, of both the rainforests fringing the beaches and the coral reefs, means there is something of interest for all. 

Spend your days relaxing on the golden sands, discover the impressive coral reefs by snorkeling or diving off-shore, or marvel at the wildlife and marine life in the surrounding rainforests or from the beaches, such as turtles and whales.

The idyllic island of Nosy Be lies to the Northwest of Madagascar, fringed with coral reef and pristine sandy beach. Here, the warm turquoise sea remains shallow and calm for miles, making it ideal for relaxing swims. You can then dry off in the shade of the leaning palms, watching the Dhows float gently past with their heavy loads. 

The island’s main town of Hellville is a busy and bustling place, full of life with street stalls and shops selling local produce making for an exciting outing if you’re seeking something different. Other small villages are dotted about the island and well worth a visit for a pleasant wander in the afternoons. The island is home to some of the Madagascar’s best snorkeling spots and offers a wealth of water-based activities including shark swims! 

These sleepy Paradise islands, dotted with small rustic villages, are encircled by coral reefs and crystal clear blue sea. Relax on the pristine white sand of the deserted beaches under the shade of the leaning palms and watch the Dhows float gently past with their loads out at sea. Like the mainland, the islands also offer a wealth of activities from cycling to whale watching and are home to some of the Madagascar’s best snorkeling spots. With year-round sunshine and breathtaking ocean views these stunning islands are a taste of true paradise.
