Sainte Marie Island
Sainte Marie Island is off the east coast of Madagascar and is also known as “Nosy Boraha”. The quiet bays and lagoons provided safe haven for pirate ships close to the maritime routes of the Indian Ocean. 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.
