"Around Nosy Komba, beautiful small islands are a must."

A few minutes by boat, some islets are worth a visit.

North of Nosy Komba, in front of the villages of Ampangorina and Antitorono, some small islands are not to be missed. You can go there during a day trip:
— Nosy Vorona with its lighthouse;
— Ambario Telo, or «the 3 brothers»;
— Ambariobe, «Cemetery Island», with its sandbank which reminds a small Nosy Iranja.

A few dozen meters from the tip of Ampangorina is the rock of Ambario Mena, “the red rock”.

In the south-east, between Nosy Komba and the mainland of Madagascar, “the Manoir Rock” is a small islet on which is buried a French colonist named M. Dumanoir.
