Anakao, Madagascar

Cruising to Anakao, Madagascar

A world away

If you're looking for a different cruise experience, a stop-off in Anakao could be just the ticket for you. Far from your average cruise port, this little fishing village is at the head of a stunning beach of pure white sand, around 40km south of Tulear in Madagascar.

History buffs will no doubt want to explore the large and ancient tombs here, while just about anyone can enjoy the watersport and sunbathing opportunities available.

Meanwhile, boat trips can be arranged out to the uninhabited Nosy Ve and Nosy Satrana islands, just in case you're feeling the itch of exploration. Transportation is generally provided by the local fishermen, allowing for a rather adventurous experience.

A wander along any of the beaches here will reveal specks of egg shell from the much sought-after Aepyornis or elephant bird. Seeking out these creatures is an enjoyable activity that local guides will help you with.
