Madagascar North


... is a large region of the island of Madagascar.

The most visited areas are the tropical islands of the Nosy Be area. The main island of that name is usually accessed by air from the capital Antananarivo, whilst outlying islands require a further boat trip.

The far northern area, centred on the town of Diego Suarez (Antsiranana), can be connected to the previous area by road, making for an interesting northern circuit. As well as the diving and kite-surfing beaches of the far north-east, this area contains the tropical forest reserve of the Montagne d'Ambre and magical 'tsingy' erosion landscapes at Ankarana.

To the east lies the tropical forest of Masoala, the largest intact forest of its type in the country and fringing onto beautiful beaches and coral reefs.

A little further south Nosy Boraha (Ile Sainte Marie) is another wonderful tropical island retreat to rival Nosy Be, which can sometimes form part of an overland route from the capital, over the islands via Andasibe and onwards to Masoala.

Over to the north-west, the city of Mahajanga remains of less interest to most visitors, although the coastline to the east does contain a couple of the best beach lodges in the country.
