Nosy Be

The islands "Nosy" in the bay
The archipelagos
Coast of Madagascar

The big Red Island is surrounded by thousands of miles of deserted beaches scattered with the occasional fishing village. It has a unique fauna and flora and extensive unesplored barrier reefs full of marine life. It has 18 different tribes, descendants of the Arabs, Indians, Africans, Chinese and Indonesians, yet despite the Island's close proximity to the coast of Mozambique, the people have an entity completely different form that of the Africants.

In regards to the origin of Madagascar, one theory which keeps coming up is that of Gondwana, who put forward the theory of the sliding continents. Thus the Island once detached from the coast of Mozambique slides into the Indian Ocean.

Madagascar has not become a very much in demand tourist destination. Tourists that explore the Red Island are attracted to the charm of an extremely rich and unique flora and fauna but also to a great variety of landscapes.
