Nosy Be owes its nickname of “Island of Perfumes” to the plantations of Ylang-Ylang and spices whose fragrance is permanently in the air, captivating tourists as soon as they set foot on the airport of Fascène. The island, which has an area of 300 km2, is situated 8 kilometres off the North-West Coast of Madagascar. The pace of life is as slow and drawn-out as the island’s killer sunsets, and, with average daily temperatures of 25-30 º Celsius, these tropical islands make this a perfect destination for a “sea & sun” holiday.

Nosy Be means "big island" in Malagasy, several smaller islands are located nearby, including Nosy Komba, Nosy Tanikely and Nosy Sakatia (Orchid Island), to name a few. The island's main town is Hellville.

An ideal way to enjoy the Mitsio Archipelago, with some of the most beautiful beaches of Madagascar, is to charter a yacht to venture off and explore, with snorkelling, diving and fishing along the way.
