Île Sainte-Marie

Isle Madagascar, Madagascar

A sleepy island off Madagascar Île Sainte-Marie

Nosy Boraha, previously known as Île Sainte-Marie (and still popularly known by travellers as such), is an island off Madagascar’s east coast. Near the main town of Ambodifotatra, the pirates’ cemetery includes graves marked with a skull and crossbones. With a considerable amount of island charm it has numerous deserted beaches show off a fringe of coconut palms and luscious vegetation, and intriguing inland villages make the perfect place to explore. Off the south coast, Île aux Nattes and Ilôts aux Sables are tiny islands with coral reefs and sea turtles. Antanandava Waterfall is surrounded by rainforest. On the east coast, traditional pirogue boats dot Baie d’Ampanihy’s lagoon.
