A six night charter took us to so many incredibly beautiful islands and snorkeling spots. The most busy was Tanikely but truly worth a stop. For those wanting less crowds and more beauty enquire about chartering from MadagasCaT Charters & Travel

A small dream island which is also a natural reserve. Postcard beach with crystal water and the forest just behind. The entrance costs about 3€. You can snorkel around and there are some nice fish, even if not plenty.

We had a great day here - we started with a walk up to the Lighthouse for some lovely views. We then spent the rest of the day snorkeling in the crystal blue sea. Highlights include a puffer fish and 3 turtles.

We snorkeled at a lot of different places around Nosy be, Komba, Iranja, and other island. Tanikely was our favorite. It really shows how much a marine preserve can help keep the reef ecosystems healthy and flourishing. This place was world class! We snorkeled and...More

The most incredible snorkeling at low tide in pristine clear water. Beautiful beaches and a lovely climb up to the lighthouse to see the lemurs is well worth it.
