Madagascar lies off the southeastern coast of Africa and is a biodiversity hotspot, and 90% of its wide life is seen nowhere else in the world. So why not change the playground this time, and go to the most beautiful beaches of the fifth-largest island in the world?

Almost all the island’s tourists come to Diego Suarez, which is famous for its beautiful beaches, especially Ramana beach.

A dream setting offers the view of one of the most beautiful seas in the world and long, imposing massifs in the South of the region.

Also, as it is close to Diego Suarez, you could make a small stopover there, just to visit two magnificent places with one stone of two shots.
