Sainte Marie Island Extension

Sainte Marie Island is also known under the Malagasy name of “Nosy Boraha”. Sainte Marie had a colourful history of pirate activity during the 17th and 18th centuries. The quiet bays and lagoons provided safe haven for pirate ships close to the maritime routes of the East India Company. Several pirate shipwrecks lie in the shallow water of the Baie des Forbans. The quiet lagoons offer unique diving and snorkelling. Year round rain from the Indian Ocean provides a lush green environment where orchids and lemurs thrive. From July to September it has become a whale watching hot spot as the Antarctic humpbacks come to breed.
