Nosy Iranja is located south-west of Nosy Be, beyond the Bay of Russians about 27 nautical miles or about 1h30 by boat. It can seem long, after an hour you will say “she has interest to be worth it” then 15 minutes later you will see it and say “yes, she looks nice, she was worth it to be the shot “and when the boat will dock you will say” yes anyway … I should take my luggage … “
Nosy Iranja, that to such particular ?
The attraction of Nosy Iranja lies in the beauty of the place, it consists of two islands that are connected by a 1km white sandbank totally submerged at high tide. The largest island is home to a fishing village where you can enjoy a wonderful seafood buffet. The second island is a private island accessible only at low tide and is home to a hotel. A tip, go for a drink at the bar, chat with the staff and if you know how to do it you’ll be able to show you the back of the island … and … its turtle nests! With luck will you attend a birth?
What to do in Nosy Iranja ?
For the brave (and again!), Go back to the island and climb to fart, nice walk and pretty point of view. Otherwise, lazing on the beach, swimming and shooting photos for fans?
You also have the possibility as mentioned above to go see the turtles on Iranja-kely, and finally visit the few craft shops.
