The late Jacques Cousteau described the waters of Madagascar as the world's most beautiful diving area. The underwater panorama which opens before your eyes will truly leave you breathless... which is an unfortunate cliché to use, seeing as you'll be scuba diving or snorkelling at the time! The reef dives range from shallow dives to wall dives. The coral is in pristine condition, as they can only be reached by yacht or large vessels, and it's so large that many sights have yet to be discovered.
Madagascar has recently started to attract the interest of diving. The most popular and beautiful group of islands in the Malagasy republic lie in the Northern tip of the country, namely Nosy Be, which offer fantastic diving where the fish life, coral and snow white beaches are in pristine condition and relatively untouched.
