The island is surrounded by beautiful beaches lined with palm trees and baobabs, some of which are several hundreds of years old!
The closed Bay of Nosy Kisimany, formed by a volcanic crater, is an ideal stopover during cruises among the islands of the Nosy Be archipelago. The waters surrounding the island are particularly rich and it is not uncommon to come cross dolphins. The configuration of the bay provides swimming in waters with almost no current - ideal to observe the coral-rich seabed. It's a haven for lovers of relaxation, scuba diving and snorkelling!
Each year a dhow - a traditional sailing boat - came to the village from Zanzibar to take on a load of shark oil before carrying on its way.
