The Mitsios archipelago is made up of several small islands (The 4 brothers, Tsarabanjina, Nosy Lava) and a main island, La Grande Mitsio which are located about 45 miles northeast of Nosy Be.

These islands located on the continental shelf are surrounded by crystal clear water and offer a grandiose spectacle: tropical vegetation, basalt organ, baobab…

The biodiversity of Mitsios is exceptional whether on the sea side, on the land side but also in the sky: There are many seabirds around these islands including: The Great Frigatebird, different species of terns and brown boobies!

The main island, La Grande Mitsio, is 12 km wide and 3 km long. It is mainly composed of low vegetation (it is a windy region), with a few fishing villages or goat breeders! It is on this island that we can observe a particularly remarkable geological phenomenon: Basalt organs! The shapes and colors of these rocks torn between land and sea are breathtaking! These large, virgin and deserted beaches guarantee you contemplative walks and timeless moments.

Nosy Ankarea located opposite the Grande Mitsio seems to have come out of a book by Saint Exupery. Maybe he was sitting on that beach when he imagined the snake with the elephant in its belly! In addition to its sublime view of the entire Archipelago, Ankarea is surrounded by exceptional seabed: The corals there are in full health and quite extraordinary richness.

Your home for these two nights is located on the main island, Grande Mitsio. Located in the middle of a deserted beach, with breathtaking sunsets every evening with Ankarea in the background.

Embarking at Mitsios means taking the risk of never wanting to leave! Welcome to this wild archipelago!
