Situated northeast of mainland Madagascar, Nosy Ankao is an idyllic, reef-protected archipelago paradise. A helicopter ride to Miavana by Time + Tide offers breathtaking views of the luxury hotel located on the largest island, revealing dense forests and pristine white sandy beaches from the air. This secluded piece of paradise offers both land and sea-based adventures, as well as time for relaxation. Conservation efforts have led to an uptick in indigenous trees and their fluffy lemur inhabitants.

Set out on a thrilling tropical adventure as you cycle along the island, discovering secret coves and beaches. Lemur forest treks and quad-biking on land offer exploration, adrenaline, and a connection to the natural world. Seamlessly transition to sea activities like snorkeling and expert-guided PADI scuba diving to explore the dotted reefs and shipwrecks on the ocean floor. Water enthusiasts can partake in activities such as water-skiing, wake-boarding, and paddleboarding, among others. Enjoy sunset cruises around the archipelago or wind down with relaxing options like half-day fishing trips or aromatic massages at the spa.

This Madagascar escape is perfect for both thrill-seekers and relaxed coastal explorers – additional seasonal activities include kitesurfing during optimal winds and whale watching (in season). A particular highlight is to witness nesting turtles and marvel at the adorable hatchlings emerging from their shells, making their mad dash for the ocean.
