How to get there
About a 20-mile ride from Toliara in a car or coach
When to go
Between April and October (dry season), hurricane danger between late December and mid-April.
Whether snorkeling or scuba diving, everyone will be amazed at the extraordinary multi-coloured coral and the variety of fish that inhabit them. Summer travellers can admire the magic of the humpback whale show: Ifaty is part of their migration route towards Sainte Marie. Wildlife lovers can visit a 17-acre tortoise village, whose aim is to protect certain endangered species.
You can also participate in windsurfing, freediving or fishing for sporting holidays … Or simply stroll along the white sandy beaches revelling in the multicoloured parade of outrigger canoes.
