    Destination

    Tulear with an average of 36cm (14”in) rainfall makes it the junction between a tropical west coast and the desert south. The southern regions (Vezo, Antandroy) show a bushy kind of vegetation, with spiny desert and unique flora varieties: baobab-like plants, thickets, euphorbias, didiereaceas, aloes and bottle trees. The dry season lasts 9 months from March to Nov and even during summer. Ifaty is rather shrubby with grassy savannahs, palm trees and tamarind trees fed by muddy rivers in the estuaries, deltas and mangroves. During winter, air temps hover around 28°C (82°F), while the water temps rarely dip below 23ºC (75ºF), but take a shorty for windy days.

    Wild ringtail lemurs live near St Augustin Bay, where a visit to the Sarodrano Cave is a must. Active travellers spending a night in Tulear have to check the local clubs (an open mind is required) and dance the Minotsobe. Bird watching in Anakao and awesome forest hikes around Ifaty. Also some good dive sites.

    Surf

    Measuring 1600km (1000mi) in length and 650km (406mi) across at its widest, Madagascar is the world’s 4th largest island.

    A mountainous central ‘spine’ separates the permanently damp east from the drier west and sub-desert south.

    Thanks to an difficult access and an exaggerated reputation for sharks found mainly on the East coast and 10 km offshore only a small number sighted close inshore, Madagascar is the surfing worlds biggest secret spot! With nearly 5000km (3125mi) of coastline, there is huge potential.

    Our surf lodge local spots have a 270° swell window, facing directly into the SW swells with mainly offshore conditions and 700km (438mi) of varied coral reef to explore. 

    The surf lodge main reef has five main exclusive surf spots suiting all ability levels.

    We can also arrange exploration of new undiscovered spots for surfers wth an adventurous spirit.

    When to Go:

    Low pressure systems moving east, away from South Africa pump swell up and along the Mozambique Channel. SW-facing reefs will receive up to 12ft (4m) surf but most of the quality surf will have to wrap around the NW-facing reefs so SE trades can blow fully offshore. From April to September, expect regular swells producing 4-12ft (1.2-4m).

    Unlike the rest of Madagascar, the tide factor rises in the Mozambique Channel and can reach 6ft (2m) on spring tides, which is enough to bring the live coral close to the surface and cause slow navigation at low tide in the lagoon.
