To get to Manambato, an access town for the Pangalanes Lakes, turn east off the RN2 30km north of Brickaville. It's a 7km sandy track and you'll need a 4WD in the rainy season. Pretty Lac Rasobe has a beautiful white-sand beach and a good place to stay. Acacias has cute bungalows on the beach connected by sandy paths, and management that pays attention to the details. Picnics packed on request.
