It is sometimes said that the Anjajavy peninsula is a miniature of Madagascar as it brings together in one place some of the emblems of the island, such as the famous Tsingys.

My suggestion:
Anjajavy peninsula is an ideal place for water sports: fishing, diving, snorkelling, wakeboarding... there is something for everybody!
My review

Located on the Mozambique Channel, Anjajavy takes its name from the jajavy, the mangrove tree whose rot-resistant wood is used in the manufacture of dhows.

The peninsula is a plant paradise: 1800 species spread over a reserve of 450 hectares have been identified there. Rosewood, baobabs and orchids are there to be discovered in a marvellous setting. Lemurs inhabit the area and the best time to observe them is during the months of October and November.

The bay of Moromba is nicknamed the "Malagasy Halong Bay", with its islands of Tsingys which entrap the roots of baobab trees. The bay is also the home of the African fish eagle, an endangered species.
