Quick Itinerary Overview

A mere 15 km away from the Madagascan mainland lies the island Nosy Be.

On this island you can still discover a little paradise and all the rarities it has to offer, including tasty spices and sweet-smelling vanilla.

Climb Mount Lokone or Mount Passot to see Nosy Be's jagged coastline, the numerous bays and lovely coves, the deserted beaches and the crystal clear water.

You have the opportunity relax on the white sand beaches or go snorkeling and diving. Take a day trip to the nearby islands, like Nosy Komba where you can come into close contact with the black lemurs that roam this island.

The Nosy Be Island Holiday offers a remarkable and relaxing Madagascar Budget Safari experience!

Itinerary for this Tour

Day 1: Nosy Be – Madagascar

This Budget Madagascar Tour begins on the small island of Nosy Be, where you are taken to your beach hotel. Nosy Be is also called Nosy Manitra, which translates as "the Scented Island" and is located off the northwestern coast of Madagascar.

The island boasts white-sand beaches and warm turquoise waters - a tropical paradise! The island is known for its sweet blend of fragrances, with ylang-ylang, frangipani, and vanilla, as well as cocoa, cinnamon and sugar cane growing here.

As one of the top destinations in Madagascar, Nosy Be offers plenty of things to do, from relaxing on idyllic beaches and scuba diving to visiting the ylang-ylang distillery and climbing Mount Lokone (450m) or Mount Passot (350m) to enjoy the stunning views.

  • Hotel Accommodation: set along the sandy beach blending in with the surrounding tropical environment.

Day 2 - 3: Nosy Be – Madagascar

Spend the next few days soaking up the peace and beauty of laid-back Nosy Be. Choose from an exciting array of optional activities (extra cost) during your stay.
