"If only! "Maybe that's what you think when, immersed in the stress of your daily life, you propel yourself onto a white sandy beach lined with coconut palms. Soothed by the rustling waves of turquoise water, a cocktail in hand, feet in the water. This picture is probably that of the many islets scattered around Nosy Be: small pieces of paradise lost in the Indian Ocean. The hotels that have settled there offer you an opportunity to realize these dreams of escape.
As the term suggests, an island hotel generally hosts nothing more than a hotel on a private island. It accommodates you in immersion in the greenery of the forest and the postcard beaches around Nosy Be.
They are therefore addressed to those travellers who are looking for peace, tranquility, relaxation, independence, a change of scenery, nature and intimacy.
Nevertheless, if in the meantime the desire for a little animation takes you, it is always possible to reach the main island of Nosy Be by boat in a few minutes, or even an hour or two depending on the hotel island you have chosen.
Already, it is the only place in Madagascar that can offer you this type of stay. But as a bonus, it is not necessary to have a substantial budget to take benefit of this escape unlike the Maldives hotel islands for example.
The archipelagos around Nosy Be offer a variety of luxury accommodation: from the most modest to the most luxurious. The landscape, the change of scenery and the experience remain special!
The choice of hotel will be made according to the proposed environment. There are bungalows inspired by local craftsmanship or decorations that combine tradition and modernity.
The location of the hotel is also important if you plan to travel frequently to the main island of Nosy Be.
Don't hesitate to check out the activities on offer if you want to stay active and enjoy Madagascar's nature. Ideally, you should find what suits your personality, because even if you only plan to do idleness on the beach, everyone still has their expectations.

The majority of the island hotels in Nosy Be do not always have a large accommodation capacity: about 7 bungalows/rooms on average. Others less, others more.
I advise you to prepare your stay well in advance. It rarely gets booked at the last minute, unless you were born under a lucky star.
These island hotels rarely have a swimming pool, a minibar, air conditioning or other stuffed personnel. They often prefer ecotourism facilities (solar energy, water treatment, etc.) to be in harmony with nature. The aim is to leave as few traces as possible on the island's ecosystem while guaranteeing your comfort.
The activities are diverse and various. Most are included in the price of the stay, others require an extra charge depending on the offers offered by the hotels.
Madagascar is above all a nature and adventure destination. Even on your island, you can discover the surrounding forests with their respective fauna and flora on land or simply enjoy marine activities: diving, snorkelling, standing-paddle, kayaking, fishing, etc.
Nosy Be remains the most popular destination in Madagascar, I advise you to book in advance if you do not want to be disappointed. From August to October, it is the high season, plan to book 2-3 months in advance!

I see you coming, it's a big promotion and a scam, right?
In fact it's simple, Live Madagascar is not a booking site that takes commissions (like Booking.com for example) or a travel agency. This page was initially a simple blog on Nosy Be with tips I wanted to share because I have been living in Madagascar since 2006. Today, he has become a complete guide on the big island, but it remains a site I don't live on financially!
But why this website then?
