Ifaty & Mangily in detail


Most hotels in this area organise activities for guests, including diving, snorkelling (per person around Ar50,000), whale watching (July to September; around €50 per person) and pirogue trips.


Diving possibilities include everything from shallow inshore 5m to 10m dives and up to 26m dives on the edge of the barrier reef. The latter focuses on two passes, north and south, with the former containing a famous network of rocky arches called the Cathedral. While most sections of the reef are damaged, there is a variety of fish.
