Indian Ocean - Madagascar

Mid-way between Africa and Asia, Madagascar is a unique island-continent. A destination you will not forget; more than a discovery, a revelation… Between the exuberance of its tropical forests, its desert landscapes, its forests of baobabs, ‘Mada’ is also bathed by the Indian Ocean ! And here, protect your eyes… The lagoons of the multiple small islands will allow you to discover an incredibly rich seabed and deserted anchorages which are unique in the world !



It is called the red island… Madagascar is 1,600km long and around 500km wide. It is covered by high ground which rises abruptly above the eastern plain and descends more gently to the west coast, where the main rivers end. The tropical climate varies according to the altitude and the situation with respect to the trade winds; the east, windward coast is very wet and the leeward, west coast much less so.
Madagascar’s population, a real melting pot, is made up of almost 20 different nationalities, (Asian, African, Arab, Chinese, European...). The island is situated at the crossroads of the sea routes between China, India, Arabia, black Africa and Europe. This is certainly the origin of the legendary Madagascan hospitality.
Madagascar is situated in the Indian Ocean, separated from Africa by the Mozambique Channel, and is not quite Africa and not quite Asia. It is an exceptional island, almost a continent, with a unique flora and fauna. Nature here is exuberant and very diverse: tropical forests, savannahs, thorny deserts, baobabs, rice fields, mangroves, high plateaus and turquoise lagoons... Enough to be able to discover a different world every day. With its 3,000 kilometres of beaches, ‘Mada’ is a paradise for divers, sport fishermen and of course multihull sailors. It is bordered by numerous large and small islands, certain of them encircled by real lagoons; the Madagascan seabed alone justifies the trip. Especially as with just a few companies offering boats for charter, you will systematically be alone in the anchorages... A dream which very few destinations can offer you!
