Day 8 – 9 : Sainte Marie
A holiday on the Isle of Sainte-Marie is a really good time to be experienced. On foot, by bike or by car, we will take our time to discover the natural resources of this beautiful isle. Eucalyptus, lingozas, and raffia will shade our ramble. We will have the occasion to observe the black drongo, a bird with a forked tail and little tuft of feathers.
To discover another facet of the isle, we will go to village of Ambohidena and its vanilla plantations. As Sainte-Marie is still partially covered with a primary forest, we will also have the opportunity to make incursions into it to the great delight of the botanist amateurs. In fact, this site is a sanctuary for the orchids and tree ferns. The Black Lake is also an inevitable site for those who want a little time out of the ordinary.
But a holiday on Sainte-Marie will not be complete without seeing its small coves sheltered from the wind, ideal for a swim in the clear seawater. An outing on the sea is also a must when the whales have come there to mate in these hot waters of the Indian Ocean.
