Nosy Be is an island located off Madagascar's northwester coast, in the Mozambique Channel. It's the country's most popular beach resort. Translated as 'big island', Nosy Be's climate is near perfect year-round.
The beaches are stunningly beautiful with turquoise waters and soft white sand and are ideal for swimming. Scuba diving and snorkelling are slightly better on the other islets of the Nosy Be archipelago and there are plenty of yacht charters available to take you to these islets. Other popular activities in Nosy Be include kayaking, sailing, jet-skiing, windsurfing, deep-sea-fishing and horseriding. In 2014 an 18-hole golf course was opened.
Within easy reach of your hotel there are villages, markets, sacred lakes and forests, and you can even see lemurs and chameleons in the Lokobe Reserve.
