    A spot that defines a nation
    If you come to Madagascar, doing this avenue is an absolute MUST. Getting there from Morondava is relatively easy. There’s a coffee shop nearby and souvenir stands. Take the time you want! Best spot: getting a bit further during the sunset and watch the sun coming down in between the trees.

    Baobabs forest for sunset west of Kirindy !
    I just wanted to show you this place near Kirindy forest, two hours drive from Morondava. This is absolutely magic, and worth to visit, especially for sunset. Very quiet, and no other people. Perfect for honeymooners or couples.

    Great views
    This is the iconic view of the amazing baobab trees in Western Madagascar. It can be a bit crowded with tourists during sunset, but not annoying. I would recommend on coming here during the day when it is not crowded (for example when heading to Tsingy de Bemaraha or Kirindy Forest when you pass this sight) and during sunset with the best views. I also recommend walking the whole path first, which is around 250 meters) and then take place at the field next to the beginning for the best views. This is a great sight when in the west of Madagascar.

    Authentic Experience
    We were on a private tour from Morondava and had ample time to explore the Avenue while on our way to Kirindy, then at sunset. There are vendors around selling wooden Baobabs, but they aren’t pushy. Not crazy packed with tourists then maybe a dozen or so around sunset. See the locals going about their day.

we went to this avenue twice. first time in a day lite and second time at sunset. Amazing views. There is a restaurant where you can sit and enjoy drinks (baobao juice) and eat if you want. There are villagers staying across the road. It would have been very nice if one could see how the villagers live and pay even a small fee

It is most recommended to visit the avenue by mid afternoon and fist go to the "Baobab Amoureux" and be sure to be back for the sunset on the avenue. There is a good restaurant-bar and safe parking

Absolutely beautiful destination, which is a must see. The sunrise and sunset (and the night time) is absolutely beautiful and makes some incredible photos. The road to get there is very bumpy, but it’s all part of the adventure. We hired a tuk-tuk driver to take us there and back from Morondava for 80,000 ariary. There is a restaurant just next to the avenue which serves really great food

Definitely a must-do! Go a little before sunset so you can take picture in the light, while also being there for sunset! They have ice cream (including baobab-flavored), which is more like sorbet, but a highlight! Also, check out the local craft spots (not necessarily the store- it's very expensive). Takes about 30 min to get there from Morondava but is on the return road from Tsingy.
