Let me say that I am not in the habit of reviewing fantastic places- because I am suspicious of the net reviews myself, and also when a place is special, it is often so for me because it is not overpopulated. Great reviews from people have spoiled some of our favourite local haunts!! But if you kitesurf or windsurf (us),... More

A trip to Babaomby Island Lodge is a lifetime experience... From the initial sail boat ride to the actual location, to the magnificent lagoon in front of the lodge, every single detail of Babaomby Island Lodge will be unforgettable. The lodge is remote and the number of accommodations is limited so you have the best kitesurf spot in the world... More

I stayed here about 3 years ago and kited every day for a fortnight. Waves were incredible, fish were freshly caught every day, tents were a little basic but overall a fantastic experience and amazing value. Not suitable for beginner kite surfers or anyone worried about insects or reptiles. Quite remote. Food is mostly fish and rice every day so... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of our trip in Madagascar. This lodge is designed exclusively for those with a passion for kitesurfing and windsurfing. The tent accommodation is very comfortable and the bathrooms (shared) are kept very clean and hot water is available. The food (full board provided) is excellent and traditional for the area. They...
