Where to stay on Nosy Be

Hi, we want to avoid tourist hot spots if possible and would prefer somewhere with a nice pool and beach for a few days. Importantly, we want to visit the islands off Nosy Be and so the location has to fit in with that. Any help would be appreciated.

Going to the most touristic place in Madagascar to avoid tourist hot spots... hmmmm...

Try the less populated beaches like Ambondrona. But the main island now is quite developed. Many places now have music on the beach on the weekends, it can be hard to find a truly peaceful spot. You might be better to leave Nosy Be and go stay on Nosy Komba (e.g. Floraly Komba hotel) from where you can do tours to the other islands etc, or if you have the money, there are some really upmarket hotels on Nosy Komba (TsaraKomba being one) or on other islands, such as Zahir Lodge on Nosy Iranja or the amazing tree house on Ankazoberavina.

Would suggest staying at Belvedere hotel on Andilana beach-Nosy Be. We spent two nights on Nosy Komba at Floraly Komba and two nights at Belvedere hotel.

Andilana Beach has one of the biggest tourist resorts in Madagascar with just the Andilana Beach Resort alone having over 200 rooms, so, I would really disagree that this is in any way helping you to "avoid tourist hot spots".

The fantastic white beach of Andilana, which is without doubt the most beautiful beach on the island. . We stayed there but not crowded as our hotel is Belvedere but not the Andilana beach with 200 rooms. Andilanna is the name of the place but not only the hotel and I am sure that people who have stayed there would confirm this. And people who are staying at the Andilana beach resort have their own private beach .

A follow-up question: can you camp on Nosy Be?

Where can you do really rustic tourism - which of the islands is best?

@hlbavy, have you stayed at Au Belvédère Hotel or Villa du Belvédère? Do you know the difference by any chance?

Thanks!

I stayed at the hotel. I think the villa is at the beach, that's the difference.
