Libanona Beach

Fort Dauphin (Taolagnaro)

What luck for locals to have this fine beach right in the city! It's known for its surfing, both board and wind. Don't leave your belongings unattended on the sand or they may just disappear. And don't even think about wandering around here at night. But do come during the daytime for one of southern Madagascar's best beaches.
