When to go
The perfect season to travel to Itampolo starts in the middle of the year. From July to mid-September, the good weather doesn't stop.
How to get there
This coastal part is accessible by boat. The village of Itampolo is located an hour's drive away from Tulear, which can be reached via the RN7.
Where to stay
The bungalows of the hotel "Sud Sud Sud Itampolo" are welcoming and pleasant. A motorhome is available for those who prefer to be mobile.
Where to eat
The locals offer fried prawns or lobster just off the beach. But the restaurants in the hotels provide a more refined menu.
What to see
During the season, there is a high chance of spotting whales. It is interesting to visit the caves where lemurs sometimes take refuge. Or take a stroll along the Mahafaly plateau, which shelters the ancestors' souls, materialized by the "funeral post" tombs (the erected Aloalo). With a little luck, the protected turtles will come out.
