Nosy Be

The island of Nosy Be, off the coast of Madagascar, remains the country's premier beach getaway renowned for its tranquil ambience, pristine shoreline, and year-round warm weather.
Get outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Lokobe Nature Special Reserve. There's still lots to do: ride a horse along Ambaro Ranch, head off the coast to Nosy Sakatia, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mont Passot.

Plan my trip to Nosy Be with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Zurich, Switzerland to Nosy Be is an approximately 21.5- hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Zurich to Nosy Be is 2 hours. Traveling from Zurich in August, things will get a bit warmer in Nosy Be: highs are around 35°C and lows about 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Antsiranana (Diego Suarez).
