Mer D'Emeraude, Antsiranana (Diego Suarez)

4.8
#4 of 13 in Outdoors in Antsiranana (Diego Suarez)
Marvel at the emerald-green waters of Mer D'Emeraude, an enclosed bay whose striking colors are visible even from space. Tour operators run snorkeling trips to a spectacular coral reef (which may include a meal on deserted island), alternatively, you can hire a local fisher to take you out on the water. The sea's hues of blue and green range from turquoise to blue-black, washing the pristine beaches of a number of islands framing the bay. Stretching for some 20 km (12.5 mi), this vast lagoon has a shallow depth and sandy bottom, and also provides excellent kitesurfing and windsurfing opportunities. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Antsiranana (Diego Suarez) holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mer D'Emeraude and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Already, if you take a flight that arrives in Diego, you can see this green expanse from the plane, it is already particular from afar. And closely, the words are lacking... as you approach, the water seems to change into a crystalline expanse and a bright emerald green! Book a day from the village of Ramena (70 000 ar/pers or about €18), we will drop you on this small island where you will spend a wonderful day with nice meal on the beach, snorkelling, dream bathing in these warm and translucent waters. You will not want to leave...
