Sainte Marie Island


Sainte Marie Island

Sainte Marie Island (Ile Sainte Marie or Nosy Boraha) This beautiful island off the eastern coast of Madagascar provides the setting for a fantastic beach holiday. The island is tiny, only about 50km long and 7km wide, but its attractions are many. You'll find idyllic coral coves, long stretches of deserted beaches lined with coconut palms and hills covered with lush vegetation. It's a great spot to go snorkelling and diving and you can also usually spot whales cruising about from July to September. It's also fun to visit an even smaller island off the south coast of Sainte Marie called Ile Aux Nattes (Nosy Nato). It offers paradise beaches and a nature trail to see an incredible orchid ' two metres high with deep pink flowers. However, be warned that the weather can be temperamental and unpredictable here. Generally the best months to visit are around June or between mid August to December.
