Madagascar is a wonderful island like no other. Thousands of animal species are discovered here that are found nowhere else in the world and dense rainforests, sublime beaches and colourful reefs await visitors.
For nature and wildlife lovers this island is a real treat with a mix of adventure, far-reaching parks, trekking tours and a laid-back beach vibe. Below we round up our 10 favourite things to do.
1. Avenue of the Baobabs
Discover nature in all its glory among the beautiful, old and majestic trees on Avenue of the Baobabs. It’s a dramatic sight at sunset or sunrise as these stunning trees reach and twist towards the skies.

A visit to one of the main pirate hangouts in the world is an atmospheric experience with big stones and beautiful, winding paths. Explore the pirate history, mangrove tunnels and magical engravings from years past.
