The Vezo, sometimes called the “nomads of the sea”, form a people of Madagascar who used to occupy all the southwest coast of the big island and living mainly fishing. The Vezo are one of the last nomadic ethnic groups in Madagascar. Fishermen, they leave far from their village. During this period, they bivouac in the dunes, using the square sail of their canoe as a tent. We invite you to discover a rich and authentic culture.

is the largest fishing village Vezo, it is mainly accessible by fast boat from Tulear in less than an hour. It is a typical village with its sparkling sandy beaches bordered on one side by a strip of coastal dunes with endemic flora, on the other by a lagoon with transparent and changing waters. Two coral islands surround Anakao and its lagoon, Nosy Ve, home to Madagascar’s only tailed straw colony and Nosy Satrana, right inside the lagoon. Both islands are popular excursion destinations by pirogue or boat.
To do first: the visit by canoe of the island Nosy Ve for ½ day. The island of Nosy Ve is home to a unique bird colony in Madagascar: the straw-tail, also called “red-tailed phaeton”. They hide all over the island to lay eggs and hatch. The site is also ideal for whale watching along the coast during the austral winter. The place is sacred, and
houses “tromba” huts, a cult of reincarnation and possession.
