Sainte-Marie Island

Island in Madagascar Nosy Boraha, or Sainte-Marie Island, is an island off the east coast of Madagascar. Near the main town of Ambodifotatra, the Pirate Cemetery has graves marked with a skull and crossbones. Off the south coast, the tiny Île aux Nattes and Îlot aux Sables are bordered by coral reefs and populated by sea turtles. The Antanandava waterfall is surrounded by a tropical forest. On the east coast, traditional canoes sail on the lagoon of Ampanihy bay.

Many activities are offered, including going on a viewing excursion to meet the large species of birds endemic to the island. For the more athletic, you can also opt for a trek in the lush forest of the park. You will not fail to go for a dip in the beautiful natural swimming pool in which falls a waterfall, or to admire the sacred waterfall of the park which contains the secrets of the great cultural traditions of the island.
