“Really out there experience with fantastic waves”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I stayed here about 3 years ago and kited every day for a fortnight. Waves were incredible, fish were freshly caught every day, tents were a little basic but overall a fantastic experience and amazing value. Not suitable for beginner kite surfers or anyone worried about insects or reptiles. Quite remote. Food is mostly fish and rice every day so it is like going to a health camp. Very convivial with everyone eating together. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of our trip in Madagascar.
This lodge is designed exclusively for those with a passion for kitesurfing and windsurfing. The tent accommodation is very comfortable and the bathrooms (shared) are kept very clean and hot water is available. The food (full board provided) is excellent and traditional for the area.

They provide all the equipment necessary for kite and wind surfing and lessons for those who are just beginning. The lagoon that the lodge is based on is perfect for learners - waist high at the maximum and the water is very warm, and the instructors very patient.

I would recommend this lodge for people who are already very passionate about kite and wind surfing, as there is not a whole lot else to do. Also, to any English speaking people who may be interested - please have at least the basic command of French, as you will find very few English-speakers at the lodge.

Room Tip: The tents facing the beach are much more comfortable with a good breeze at night and a much better v...
