How did you hear about "NDAO-i-Travel"?

The Emerald Sea, is it a reality or a dream!?

The Emerald Sea is a lagoon located at the entrance of the bay of Diego Suarez (Antsiranana in Malagasy), the second largest bay in the world after Rio de Janeiro. It is protected swirls of the Indian Ocean by a coral reef and the islands Nosy Diego and Nosy Suarez, and closed by the Babaomby peninsula where proudly stands a native forest, dominate by the baobabs with their size. Other islands framing the Emerald Sea are: Nosy Antaly Be, Nosy Antaly Kely, Nosy Lava and Nosy Toreky.

The name Emerald Sea was given to this paradise of crystal clear, surprising for its emerald green color due to its sandy bottom and shallow where evolve sea turtles, octopus and manta rays. A wild charm, troubled by a flight of terns, where the pure blue sky slice with turquoise lagoon. An unforgettable discovery. Shallow in the first few meters- hence the “emerald” appellation and just moderately deep at the center to change the color to turquoise and not blue black. Even from space the colors of the Emerald Sea are highly visible. The water here is turquoise with water temperatures varying between 25 and 28 degrees Celsius. In season, the wind blows between 20-40 knots, every day! Where else can you find such awesomeness?

Snorkeling, swimming, or simply relaxing are among the interesting leisure activities. Beside sunbathing and swimming, Emerald Sea is ideal for snorkeling, kitesurfing and windsurfing. Swept from June to October by the "Varatraza", a wind from east trade winds, the Emerald Sea is an exceptional playground for lovers of this sport, encountering some Malagasy fishermen on their dhows.

It is a lagoon where you can find flatwater and waves, making it the perfect spot for wave, freeride and freestyle enthusiasts. It is a real piece of paradise, and you only have to share it with friends! The lagoon has a waterdepth of around 3 meters, sandy bottom and covers 34 square kilometers. Along the coast you will find some coral and rocks.

We can be organized day excursions on kiteboards to Emerald Bay and to the islets. Animations and laughing are on the program! At the same time, a picnic lunch of seafood in the menu will be prepared by a team of professionals.

The Emerald sea it’s so wonderful and you ask yourself if is it a reality or a dream!?
