Spotlight on Constance Tsarabanjina, Madagascar

Off the North West coast of Madagascar lies the volcanic Mitsio Archipelago, home to the beautiful island of Tsarabanjina.

Constance Tsarabanjina affords you a different type of luxury. You’ve got everything you could want from a tropical island get-away – white sandy beaches, lush vegetation, coral reefs – but its utter seclusion and tranquility give it the edge. This is a place to down tools and immerse yourself in the laid-back vibe and restful atmosphere.

Lose yourself to the quiet sound of the sea, enjoy a massage on one of the 3 delightful beaches, fish for your supper, watch the sunset from your beach bungalow while enjoying a cold glass of something, or simply lie back in your hammock and take it all in.

Tsarabanjina is home to many rare birds including the famous flycatcher of Madagascar, sea eagles and kingfishers.

A biologist has even come across the tiniest chameleon in the world – it barely exceeds 1 centimetre in length when fully grown.

Activities on offer

Scuba diving is a major draw here. The dive team take both beginners and qualified divers to the awe-inspiring Les Quatre Frères on the North West side of Tsarabanjina. These small islets are renowned as world-class diving sites, as well as being home to many nesting birds.
