Scuba & Snorkeling · Nature & Parks · Islands

Perfume Island

The island of Nosy Be, off the coast of Madagascar, remains the country's premier beach getaway renowned for its tranquil ambience, pristine shoreline, and year-round warm weather. In addition to lounging on the beach, you can add diving, snorkeling, and swimming to your Nosy Be itinerary, or set off on an island-hopping trip to explore the remote islets that surround it. If you tire of lazing on the sand, venture on a tour of the island's interior, home to verdant tropical jungle, waterfalls, villages, and the sweet-smelling plantations of vanilla, cocoa, and ylang-ylang responsible for the island's nickname. Use our Madagascar road trip tool to arrange your visit to Nosy Be and any other destinations in Madagascar that take your fancy.
