Discover The east coast Madagascar

The surroundings of Toamasina (Tamatave) on the east coast offer several charming beaches. Unfortunately, they are not used for bathing due to the presence of sharks (attracted by the abattoirs) and the very strong currents in the area. Mahambo, Mahavelona and Fenoarivo are exceptions, where swimming is possible, though caution is still advised. Toamasina is actually the largest port in Madagascar but remains a pleasant city thanks to its rather charming coast line. Towards the north, do not fail to move up to the Masoala peninsula that hosts a good nature reserve and the small Nosy Mangabe Island.
