  • Beautiful island ! You’re probably going there by tout boat, so your captain will bring you to see the turtle eating seaweeds and other sea life (south side, near Ampasimena), then bring you to visit the village of Ampasimena (we got some local snacks but they sell a lot of stuff, it’s not the cheapest though). Finally relaxing on a white sand beach and having a delicious local meal (including fresh fishes fish). If you’ve more time and/or are not in a tour, exploring more sounds awesome 😉
  • Beautiful sea lives turtles and fishes colorful ocean
  • Beautiful beach
  • Lovely place to see 🐢
  • IDYLLIC ! Was great leaving one beautiful beach on the mainland, get in a motorized canoe and arrive on another beautiful island. A little hotel/ restaurant called Chez Marie is worthy of checking out, local food. Tried to add to maps but address to ambiguous. Jungle out back. NEAR to turtle watching/ snorkeling, swimming.
