Welcome to Île aux Nattes (Nosy Nato)
What a lovely place this is. Île aux Nattes is a classic tropical island, with curving white beaches and overhanging palms, a turquoise sea with waves breaking over the reef, a gentle breeze and a lush green interior. While only a brief pirogue (dugout canoe) ride (Ar5000 return) from the tip of Île Sainte Marie, or a mere walk at low tide, there’s a palpable sense of isolation and adventure. Numerous sand pathways (beware the crab holes!) open the way for exploration without the possibility of getting too lost in an area only 2km across. So if you are suffering from visions of tropical paradise, here is your medicine.
