With nearly 5000 kilometers of coastline, Madagascar lends itself to the practice of all kinds of water activities. Spotlight on the proposed activities and main spots of the island.
Sports and escape in the northern part of the island With their magnificent coral plateaus and seabed of rare beauty, Nosy Be and Sainte-Marie attract scuba diving enthusiasts in search of exclusivity. To enjoy a good visibility underwater, it is between the month and the month of December that it is advisable to go on these paradisiac islands. The rainy season is to be avoided, because at this time of the year, the waters are turbid. Between June and September, the pleasure of diving is accentuated by the opportunity to swim alongside humpback whales that come to breed in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. In November, the meeting with the whale sharks brings more tone to the expeditions. Those wishing to accompany professional instructors during their underwater getaway can contact the PADI, FFESSM and CMAS centers established on site. To the delight of big game fishing enthusiasts, Diego-Suarez and Nosy Be also have the best nautical centers in the region. Sports holidays in the south and east of Madagascar If the north of Madagascar seduces by its seabed, the east coast and the southern coast of the island are particularly popular for their waves conducive to sliding sports. In Tulear, Anakao and Ifaty are the two most popular surf and funboard spots. Hotel facilities are available near both sites. In the vicinity of Fort-Dauphin, Lake Vinanibe is one of the best surf spots in the region. A nautical center equipped with high-performance equipment is installed on site. The Androaka spot, about 89 kilometers from Ampanihy, is also home to excellent waves. On the east coast, the bay of Mahambo is a hotbed of sliding sports. Throughout the year, the waves that caress the shores lend themselves to the practice of surfing. Hotels for every budget are available near the site.
