Cirque Rouge, Mahajanga

#1 of 10 in Things to do in Mahajanga
Cirque Rouge (or the red circuit) features red stone formations and sandy beach overlooking an open sea. Go trekking around eroded stones in the natural surroundings. Many visitors like to arrive before sunset, as the stones become yellow, pink, white, and other shades as the light changes. Hire a guide to take you to the best viewpoints of the red stones, or ask locals for advice. While experiencing the amphitheatre of red stone formations, look further for views of the sandy white beach and an open sea.
