6 Things to Do in Nosy Be That You Shouldn't Miss

“Nosy Be?” Is that a typo for “Noisy Bee?” Nope. It means “big island” and it is just that; a large island off the northwest coast of Madagascar. Here you’ll find volcanic lakes, lazy lemurs, rum distilleries, Ylang Ylang plantations and intricate coral reefs that are practically begging to be explored. Flora and fauna lovers will be in seventh heaven at the beautiful Lokobe Nature Special Reserve. Audiophiles should visit in May, to experience the four-day Donia Music Festival.

Great sunset

We climbed the very short walk up to the top for sunset. There are several little shops most of which have the same items as each other for souvenirs. The sunset was beautiful but it is best to stay a bit after the sun actually goes down and then the whol

Suited for snorkeling.

The snorkeling is good. But, of course, worse than in the Maldives. Best visit time from 8 am to 10 am, then come crowds of tourists. And in the evening may be strong wind with big waves.

The 10 Best Things to Do in Antananarivo, Antananarivo Province

Built on a narrow, rocky ridge, Antananarivo occupies a strategic point at the center of the island of Madagascar. Two forts watch over the city from the east and southwest, while within the city limits lay royal palaces, embassies, some fifty churches and a mosque. The city's most distinguishing feature may be the burnt out remains of the Rova, or Queen's Palace, situated on a prominent hill. Its steep alleys and stairways make Antananarivo a challenging but rewarding city to explore on foot.
