The slender 57 km-long granite island of Ile Sainte Marie lies 8km off the coast of eastern Madagascar and is the perfect spot for diving, fishing and beach getaways.
Sainte Marie oozes considerable charm - particularly in the small villages that dot the interior. For the outdoor-lovers, the island is crossed with tracks and palm-lined coves, and offers many opportunities to explore on foot or even on mountain bike. Of special interest are the Humpback whales that migrate here in August/September and the rare and exquisite orchids at their blooming peak in September.
Most hotels are along the coast south of Ambodifotatra, where the beach is narrow but picturesque. Expect accommodation varying from 2 star to 4 star hotels and lodges.
Boraha Village is located on the lesser-developed east coast of Saint Marie Island.
The hotel is surrounded by luxurious tropical vegetation facing the lagoon. Beautifully peaceful, private and offering all you would need for a relaxed break on a tropical island, Boraha Village will not disappoint you. Read more...
