The island of Nosy Iranja is located 45 km south of Nosy Be. Ranked among the most beautiful islands in the world, it is a real paradise that we invite you to discover during our excursions.
White sand beaches, the whole palette of blue, Madagascar in the background...welcome to Paradise!
Nosy Iranja is actually two islands:
Iranja Be (Great Iranja), the main island! It is on this piece of land that the village, the lighthouse, and our facilities for bivouac and meals are located. Several white sand dream beaches, a valley where pineapples and cassava grow (the main plantation on the island), a small hill from where you can admire an exceptional panorama!
Iranja kely (Little Nosy Iranja). Located on the other side of the sandbar, it is a private island where there is a hotel (now closed). This small islet is also the main nesting site for turtles in Madagascar.
These two islands are connected by a sandbar more than a kilometer long which is covered and uncovered depending on the tides...
The geographical location of Nosy Iranja makes it an exceptional site for the observation of marine mammals! Located on a plateau, but very close to the drop off of the Mozambique Channel, it is a privileged place of life and passage for several species of dolphins and humpback whales! It is also a nesting site for green and hawksbill turtles. During our excursions to Nosy Iranja, you will certainly have the chance to swim with turtles in crystal clear waters!
