Situated at the extreme north of the island, you will be captivated by the quietness of this village of 4000 fishermen souls. Water sports fans, Ramena is for you : windsurfing, kitesurfing, on Diego Bay for beginners and for the more seasoned, Sakalava Bay awaits you!

My review

If you prefer diving, there are plenty of wrecks to explore hereabouts. And if you enjoy making encounters when travelling , ask the fishermen to take you for a ride on the Emerald Sea, whose name says it all…

For those of you who would rather a steep little climb, a good ramble on the heights of Ramena walking eastward will bring you to Orangea Camp. This is the last French military camp, now in ruins, but offering a most sublime panorama. And between Ramena and Diego Suarez, the Montagne des Français reveals yet another magnificent viewpoint.
