Nosy Boraha is also known as Ǐle Sainte-Marie is off the east coast of Madagascar and is very popular for its whale watching as it is the primary breeding space of the humpback whale as well as some southern right whales. Nosy Boraha is a great destination as it has various parts of the island that can be explored, like Nosy Be; it is a hub for all different types of tourists. On Nosy Boraha, the inhabitants are attached to traditions. The social or family events are faithfully linked to practices invoking the ancestors’ spirits. The wealth and variety of these rituals underline the authenticity and depth of the “Saint-marien” cultural identity. An utterly unique cultural experience would be visiting the only known pirate cemetery in the world. Most of the gravestones have fallen over but the epitaphs (scratched in using stone) are still clearly visible.
The island also boasts untarnished beaches with the sparkling Indian Ocean as inviting as ever, making it a wonderful destination for honeymoons and families. The beaches are tropical, with coconut trees providing shade and elegant beach villas. The lagoons are beautiful but not as easy to swim in because of how shallow they are so it is recommended to swim in the ocean, which is calm and tranquil.
Nosy Boraha, although busy, is not as filled with tourists as Nosy Be is and has basically the same feel. The atmosphere is relaxed and the island is busy enough to give off that holiday feeling. Take the perfect break, book with us today.
