Info about Nosy be

Overview

Nosy Be is located north of Madagascar in the Mozambique Canal Waters. In the Malagasy language, Nosy Be means ‘big island’. It is the busiest tourist resort in Madagascar. The refreshing aroma of various trees like coffee, cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla, which are cultivated extensively, welcomes the tourists, giving the island the name ‘Nosy Mantira’, which means, the scented island.
The island is blessed with a tropical climate. Temperatures are pleasant all through the year, except in summer (December to February), when it gets uncomfortably hot and humid. It has a population of 60,000 inhabitants.
The first inhabitants of the place belonged to the Antankarana and Zafinofosty tribes. Later, they were joined by Comorians and Indians, followed by the Sakalava Tribe. Most of these ethnic groups still live on the island.

Overall Guide : Nosy Be has a varied landscape, ranging from high hills to volcanic lakes. Mount Lokone and Mount Passot provide an amazing panorama of the city’s jagged coastline, accentuated by numerous bays and dazzling coves. The city is home to lush... more vegetation and exotic flora and fauna, which provides a pleasant and delectable ambience to the place. A large number of secluded islands provide a perfect getaway for the tourists looking to enjoy a quiet holiday in serene surroundings. Hellville is an important town and still has remains of traditional colonial architecture. There is also a bustling marketplace here, selling local handicrafts as well as culinary delights. The neighbouring villages of Ambatoloaka, Ampasindava as well as Dzamandar are extremely picturesque and hospitable and definitely merit a visit.

Overall Guide : Any one ideal destination: Romantic, aphrodisiac, untamed, beautiful. Set yourself at the Nosy Be Hotel, enjoy the excellent food so kneadly prepared, take a walk on the beech under the moon light, set the kids free, and above all enjoy the... more company of the most humble people and their homely hospitality. You have to come down to earth, to appreciate what nature has reserved for you, at this little corner of the globe. Is immeasurably a piece of heaven. Trust me. Go experience it, and come back to tell me how right I am.
Not to be missed Hell Ville , Nosy Komba , Lokobe Nature Special Reserve
