Having been transferred from the airport in Maroantsetra, we didn't know what to expect as we embarked on our honeymoon; we thought we'd get some wildlife viewing, some snorkelling and anything else would be a bonus. How we were overwhelmed with the beauty of the situation, the excellent food, the quality of the huts, which they claim are 'basic' but in our view 'perfect'.
Our guide and cook spent the night with us on Nosy Mangabe for night walks to spot leaf-tailed geckos and anything else we could. No aye-ayes unfortunately, but a spectacular introduction to the protected area of Masoala. Next day we were whisked off to Tampololodge, where we were to enjoy the first few days of our honeymoon.
We'd recommend the place for any reason, but for a combination of perfect beach, access to rainforest, wildlife, snorkelling, swimming, service and food, quality of accommodation, it really should not be missed.
