The 4WD car is the best option to reach " fake cape " or Betanty. Take the Great South route from Antananarivo to the far south of Madagascar. As for bush taxis, they are only available on Monday, the market day.

Where to eat
The " menus of the day " of the Hotel " Libertalia " are fine. You can also taste fried prawns, squids and lobsters sold on the beach by the fishermen"s wives.
What to see
First and foremost, the observation of traditional Malagasy fishing is an activity not to be missed. Canoe trips also allow you to spot the treasures of the sea, including colourful fishes, corals and whales. Besides, there are the sumptuous tombs of the native Antandroy.
