Tsarabanjina is a beautifully designed collection of 25 ensuite chalets constructed predominately of local materials. Despite the exclusivity there is a total lack of pretension as guests are encouraged to cast aside their footwear and go barefoot. Besides relaxing on the island’s three beaches, other free activities at your disposal include snorkelling, water-skiing, tennis, volleyball and sailing. Massage, fishing, diving and boat excursions are on offer – and there is a helipad for those who want to arrive in style!
The Mitsio archipelago lies some 50km from Nosy Be, accessible only by boat. This is the Maldives of Madagascar with world class diving and outstanding beaches. One of the islands, Nosy Tsarabanjina, meaning ‘good-looking’, is made up of red, grey and black volcanic rocks with lush green vegetation clinging to them, including baobabs and pachypodium. The highlight of the island is its crystal clear waters, white sand beaches and abundant marine life.
