Great snorkeling spot but suffering from the scores of mass tourists arriving in groups of 20 from the big hotels on Nosy Be; go here early in the morning to avoid a Costa Brava feeling!

We saw turtles and octopuses and endless varieties of fish. Probably one of my most favorite snorkeling experiences happened here as well. My husband and I became surrounded by a giant school of fish, they circled us and allowed us to swim in the school....More

Definitely worth the boat trip to get here, as the snorkelling is exceptional. The walk to the lighthouse is worth the effort as the views fro the top are brilliant. All in all, an excellent day trip

We had a simply magical day at Nosy Tanikely which we did from Antoremba lodge. It is a beautiful marine protected area with lots of stunning fish & corals. We snorkelled with turtles and were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins very close-by!...More

Nice beach despite of lots of black sediment closed to the water (pollution from fuel?). Poor coral, decent fish and lots of annoying plancton. Wear protective clothing!

Absolutely best trip we had, beautiful white sand beach with amazing corals and fish around, we had lunch on the beach. Beware of the sun, it is easy to get burned in the boat!

This was my first real snorkling experience and what an experience to swim with sea turtles. Amazing coral, amazing and abundant fish life. Surely there are unfortunately bleached out areas but with this area being declared a national sea reserve, it can only become better.

Hi, try contacting maybe the hotel where we stayed: Le Grand Bleu (Jacques and Celine) They organize trips to Nosy Tanikely so might be able to organize for you! They will probably ask for payment in advance by transfer and... More
