Foulpointe, lieu de villégiature de la côte est

Sur la côte orientale de Madagascar, Foulpointe et son lagon de charme est le lieu par excellence des vacances atypiques. Accédez à ce coin de paradis à 61 kilomètres de Tamatave par la RN5.

Foulpointe ou Mahavelona, un patronyme historique

L’origine du nom Foulpointe remonterait au début du XXe siècle, quand le navire « Hopewell » du flibustier anglais Thomas White accosta tout près du lagon. Il créa à cet endroit le lieu baptisé « Hopewell Point ». Par la suite, l’endroit se transforma en « Hopeful Point », pour devenir Foulpointe à l’arrivée des Français. Selon les croyances locales, le nom de Mahavelona serait lié à une histoire miraculeuse. À une époque lointaine, bien avant la venue des Européens et des Merina dans la contrée, un mort retrouva la vie après avoir été baigné dans la petite rivière qui traverse le village. Abasourdie, la population décida d’appeler l’endroit Mahavelona littéralement « qui donne la vie ».

Une station balnéaire de premier choix

Foulpointe fait preuve d’un engouement énorme lors des périodes des grandes vacances, entre juillet et septembre. Une population de vacanciers provenant des quatre coins de l’île arrive sur place pour apprécier sa longue plage protégée des requins par une barrière de corail. Baignades, farniente, et chaises longues sont légion pour parfaire un séjour sur le célèbre lagon de Foulpointe. Le village compte également un patrimoine historique incontournable : le Manda, ou fort, érigé par le roi Radama Ier. C’est un impressionnant édifice en forme circulaire situé au milieu d’une végétation luxuriante constituée de ravenalas et de cocotiers, à 5 kilomètres au nord du village.
