If you are at Nosy Be you must take a boattrip to Nosy Iranja! The beach and the cristal clear water are amazing.! The trip takes about 1,5 hour, and it is worth every minute.

What an amazing set of islands with amazing colours - from the white sands to the multi-coloured waters and the vibrant local shops with their multi-coloured materials. The trip there and back can be somewhat grueling, but it was well worth it.

If you like authentic places dont go here. I had high expectations but all I did was looking at tourists making selfies. There are more tourist 'shops' than houses. The snorkeling is poor and the lighthouse is closed. Not worth the 1.5hour boatdrive.

We arranged through the Andilana Beach Resort to have a symbolic wedding on the uninhabited side of the island; which was absolutely perfect in every way.

White beaches, crystal waters, beautiful, esthetic. The walk between the islands with water on both sides was great. It's a long boat trip to get there but worthwhile seeing.

Two small lush tropical islands connected by a thin curvy strip of fine white sand. Clear aquamarine waters on both sides. Sea turtles. 1.5 hour boat ride each way from Nosy Be. Bring lots of sunblock and a swim shirt to avoid being sunburned. Small...More

From flying foxes to green turtles, giant rays to hermit crabs, Nosy Iranja is a paradise island for humans and wildlife alike. The beaches are stunning, the waters crystal clear. The sunsets are colourful - striking beyond anything I've ever seen, and the beautiful, rousing...More

By going there we had the luck to see also a couple of whales and a see turtle... Once arrived, we could only admire the natural scenario and enjoy the see... It is a place not to miss!
