Cap Miné is located north of Ramena, a few kilometres from Diego-Suarez, which is the port of entry into Diego Bay. 

My suggestion:
Further along the coast, the bay of Pigeons and the bay of Dunes are perfect for swimming or lazing around! It's the place to be forfans of relaxing holidays...
My review

Military remnants, including guns and fortifications, dating from the French colonial period are still visible, testifying to the strategic interest of the site for the control of the channel. Even today, there is still a military camp nearby where visitors pay a toll to visit the site.

Access Cap Miné from the village of Ramena or by a trail that allows you to discover three beautiful bays that open onto the Indian Ocean. From Sakalava Bay, the trail passes along beautiful deserted beaches lined with palm trees, coconuts and baobabs. The place is well-known to kitesurfers, who come to take advantage of the sea breeze.
