booking flights to Ile St Marie / Nosy Bohana

Hi

I am looking to book my flight tickets online for a honeymoon on St Marie. I have trouble with booking Antanarivo to St Marie - I cannot locate the airport on St Marie I'm suppose to fly to. I went to Air Madagascar's website - can't see an option there. We want to travel 13 - 20 August from Cape Town, South Africa. Also, all the options made available to me suggests we have to overnight Tana. I'm not se keen on that - would rather get to St Marie the same day. Does anybody know if this is possible?

Is it recommended to travel by road from Antanarivo to Saint Marie?

You need to drive from Antananarivo to Soanierana Ivongo via Sainte Marie. Then the next morning from Soanierana Ivongo you take a boat to Sainte Marie.

IMPORTANT: make sure you cross in the morning for safety reasons and tides otherwise it can be dangerous.

There is a company called Cap Sainte Marie which offers the service in addition to shuttle service from Toamasina to Soanierana Ivongo.
