THE ISLAND OF LEMURS

A jewel of nature

Nosy Komba is the hyphen between Nosy Be, the famous island perfumes, and mainland Madagascar. This large mountain, covered with dense tropical vegetation, looks strangely like a turtle shell.
Small beaches caressed by emerald-coloured water, as well as a varied fauna and flora, make Nosy Komba an increasingly coveted jewel of nature.

Nosy Ambariovato

Made up of numerous rocks, mainly granite and slate, Nosy Komba was originally called Nosy Ambariovato, which means “the island surrounded by rocks”.
These rocks are the memory of a volcanic past, and protect the island when the waters are rough.
