Trip Planner: Africa / Madagascar / Antsiranana Province / Antsiranana (Diego Suarez) / Mer D'Emeraude
Marvel at the emerald-green waters of Mer D'Emeraude, an enclosed bay whose striking colors are visible even from space. Tour operators run snorkeling trips to a spectacular coral reef (which may include a meal on deserted island), alternatively, you can hire a local fisher to take you out on the water. The sea's hues of blue and green range from turquoise to blue-black, washing the pristine beaches of a number of islands framing the bay. Stretching for some 20 km (12.5 mi), this vast lagoon has a shallow depth and sandy bottom, and also provides excellent kitesurfing and windsurfing opportunities. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Antsiranana (Diego Suarez) holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mer D'Emeraude and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

The Emerald sea is 1 hr by boat from Ramena beach and it's a must see when in the area. The local boat excursions leave in the morning and typically include a fish barbecue in the shaded areas close..... more »
Lovely water colours. Nice beach. Not goid for swimming due to incredibly low tide why h makes the water way too shallow. Way too small boats take you out there on a very tough sea on the way back... more »
