You visit Nosy Boraha to watch the whales who visit between late June and early September to sort a series of family matters.

Hotel Libertalia is a good place to stay on Isle Ste. Marie.

We stayed here for three nights and got really good value for our money. We had a beachfront bungalow with two beds inside. Everything afternoon the staff goes in to put down the mozzinets before mozzi-hour starts. The food was great and the beers cold. Very pleased.

We spent three nights. We found the staff very helpfull. They really wanted us to enjoy our stay on their beautiful island. The bungalow was clean and the shower had lovely warm water. The hotel is within walking distance of the pirate cemetery and town.

Stayed at Libertalia on the night of arrival on Ile St Marie. Hosts were very helpful and friendly on arrival. Rooms are very traditional and quaint but lack airconditioning. They are literally a few meters from the beach which is nice and the lounge/dining area is nicely done. It is value for money and enjoyed the experience

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Island of Sainte Marie Madagascar or Nosy Boraha is traditionally known as “Island of the pirates” .It is separated from mainland Madagascar by a narrow channel and remains a small green paradise preserved from mass tourism. An oasis of tranquility surrounded by luxurious gardens, our hotel has views of the setting sun with 180° panorama.Well sheltered from the brisk South-eastily winds, Libertalia is easily recognisable by its rock, a place to observe whales , and go for a spot of snorkeling and a swim (rare in the south island)Welcoming and friendly , it has had a reputation of being excellent value for money and high quality service for over 10 years.Ideally located, near the town, it is a starting point for many excursions all around Sainte Marie and is population, adept of “mora mora”, like “gently, gently”In season the hotel organizes whale watching in collaboration with CETAMADA. Martine and Didier, the owners who have a passion for whales, are two founding members of this association. ... more   less
