The surrounding of Anakao

* * * * *

Anakao is surrounded by marvellous places. Peter Pan Anakao, in collaboration with the fishermen of its neighborhood, organizes daily excurtions for the guests to discover those paradises with simpathy and safety.

Right in front of the hotel, about two kilometers, there is the island Nosy Ve,  just in the middle of the bay. Moreover the island Nosy Satrana, situated more south, is surrounded by a sea of enchanting colors. A natural swimmingpool in the low tides invites to enjoyable snorkeling. Another excurtion that people appreciate is the estuary of the river Honilay.

From June to October the humpack whales are in the Anakao water. A big show to see.

At 60 kilometres south from Anakao, close to Ambola village, there is the national park Tsimanampetsotse. At the Peterpan reception  it is possible  to book a 4x4 for daily excursions, leaving in the morning and returning in the afternoon.

Excursions to the coral islands

* * * * *

The beaches of Nosy Ve are wonderful and virgin, the white sand contrasts with the turquoise of the sea and the dark green vegetation. Around the island is nice to do snorkeling to the coral riffs, the hotel has the necessary equipment. The island is a protected park, where the rare birds phaetons live. These birds are considered sacred by the local community and it’s very easy to see them in the bushes.

In front of Nosy Satrana, some fiords go into the lands, creating a mangroove ecosystem, with a lot of crabs, shells and birds, a place very interesting to visit as well.
