Absolutely best trip we had, beautiful white sand beach with amazing corals and fish around, we had lunch on the beach. Beware of the sun, it is easy to get burned in the boat!

This was my first real snorkling experience and what an experience to swim with sea turtles. Amazing coral, amazing and abundant fish life. Surely there are unfortunately bleached out areas but with this area being declared a national sea reserve, it can only become better.

Unfortunately most of the coral is bleached out and dead. Has various colorful fish and sea urchins. Giant clams. Didn't see any sea turtles but sometimes they are here. Popular spot for scuba classes. 20,000 Ar entry

Too summarize: it's too hard to get there for the adventure available. Our tour required us to stay 4 hours here. In 2 hours everyone was ready to go! It's fun to go up top of lighthouse, and observe lemurs in the trees . Walk...More

We paid 70,000 Ar per person plus another 20,000 Ar to enter the park (this includes Nosy Komba). Bring sun tan lotion and mosquito spray and a shirt to snorkel in. There's plenty of shade and they had beer and coke but no water -...More

Hi, try contacting maybe the hotel where we stayed: Le Grand Bleu (Jacques and Celine) They organize trips to Nosy Tanikely so might be able to organize for you! They will probably ask for payment in advance by transfer and... More
