Nosy Boraha (also known as the Island of Sainte Marie) is a narrow granitic island off the east coast of Madagascar. Thanks to its endless deserted beaches overhung with coconut palms, luxuriant vegetation, clove and coconut plantations, combined with the gentle welcome of the people, Nosy Baraha is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Madagascar. Its underwater fauna is preserved as a natural heritage and first-class diving site in the Indian Ocean. And maybe best of all is that the channel between Nosy Boraha and Madagascar is a hot spot for whale watching!
