Things to do near Nosy Be

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Nosy Be, along with a brief description:

♦ Nosy Sakatia

There are many beautiful beaches in Nosy Be, but one spot you definitely shouldn’t miss out on is Nosy Sakatia. This small island is situated off the coast of Nosy Be and is just a short boat ride away. Home to many natives (rather than tourists), the beaches in Nosy Sakatia are perfect for activities such as swimming and fishing (you might even run into some local fishermen). It is also home to lots of native wildlife, such as crabs, and lemurs. When snorkeling, you can get up close and personal with colorful fish, reef, and giant sea turtles!

♦ Lemuria Land

A visit to Lemuria Land is a great way to learn more about the animals and wildlife that are native to Nosy Be. Guided tours provide you with insights on lemurs, turtles, crocodiles, birds, chameleons, plants, flowers, and everything else native to the island. Tours can become quite interactive, as the lemurs are friendly and will sit on your shoulder (if you so desire). You’ll discover tons of great photo ops here, so ensure that you bring your camera or have a full charge on your phone to take lots of memories. This is an especially great activity for families traveling with young kids!

♦ Nosy Tanikely National Park

Like Nosy Satakia, Nosy Tanikley National Park is located on a small island off the coast of Nosy Be and is just a short boat ride away. This beautiful, untouched land is perfect for activities such as snorkeling, wildlife viewing, and beach picnicking. A lighthouse provides panoramic views of the landscape, which make for some great pictures! Some of the wildlife you can run into on this island include lemurs, snakes, turtles, fish, and more (note that since this island is a natural reserve, fishing is prohibited).
