When to go
If the great south of Madagascar is known for its extremely hot and dry climate, in Fort-Dauphin the climate is less rigorous, with an average annual temperature of 23°C. However, it is preferable to go between July and October.
How to get there
From Antananarivo, you have the choice between taking the road or taking the plane. If you feel that the journey by road is too long, then domestic flights operated by the national airline serve Fort-Dauphin. Once at your destination, choose to rent a car to get to Lake Ambinanibe.
Where to stay
Vinanibe Lodge is located on the northern shore of the lake. In the town of Fort- Dauphin you have the choice between the Hotel La Croix du Sud, Le Dauphin or La Marina. Facing the sea is the hotel Le Talinjoo. The Port Hotel is also ideal for an idyllic stay.
Where to eat
If you like seafood there's Richard's. For fans of French cuisine, go to Marceline's. And to discover Malagasy cuisine, Chez Vivie, Perline or Georges.
What to see
At the top of the dunes of Ambinanibe is an exceptional panorama over the ocean, the village nestled in the hollows of the coconut trees and the mountains to the north. If you can wait, the sunset here is beautiful.
