Discover Grande Terre - The north coast Mayotte

The north coast of Grande Terre, from Mamoudzou to Miha, has several interesting sites and lovely beaches for swimming. After Koungou, whose town hall is in the Alsatian style (because it is twinned with a town in Alsace), the road runs along an indented stretch of coast. Stop at Dzoumogne, an old sugar farming village, then drive on to Pointe d'Handrema. At this point, you have to walk to explore the creeks which make the peninsula so beautiful. Then go to M'tsamboro, this fishermen's village is quite typical of Mayotte, and you will certainly be offered a ride on a pirogue to the Choizil islets out in the bay. Do not miss out on this, their beaches are magnificent.

    The sea and the idyllic little coves dotted along the coastline are some of Mayotte's prime assets when it comes to attracting tourists. A trip out in a pirogue boat is a good way to appreciate the beauty of the coastline.
