Situated in northwestern Madagascar, not far from the island of Nosy Be, Russian Bay opens onto the Mozambique Channel. Its quiet waters provide shelter to many species of fish, rays and turtles.

My review

History gave the bay its name: during the Russo-Japanese War at the beginning of the twentieth century, the Russian fleet used Nosy Be as a rallying point for a large number of its vessels. After many long months in the region and a great deal of drinking, the Russian soldiers suffered a major defeat at the hands of the Japanese fighters. The soldiers have disappeared today, but the bay has kept its name.

Russian Bay offers a perfect postcard landscape. The mangrove trees reflect on the water in a mixture of vibrant colours and its magnificent beaches complete the picture.
