A stay on Île aux Nattes is in itself a getaway… There are no roads, so no cars. This island is a journey out of time where nature remains preserved and intact.
I like to share my “love at first sight” love for this place with our guests through walks on the island, where you will discover, in total calm, fauna, traditions, legends and the exuberance of nature.
Share the way of life of the Saint-Mariens, exchange with them smiling and friendly moments. A game of football facing the sea, for the more athletic…
On a coral base, covered with white sand within a magnificent turquoise-colored lagoon, off Sainte-Marie Island, three islets of white sand ‘ilot aux sables’, Nosy Rinditra, Nosy Andromba and Nosy Alanana. You will find all kinds of shells there, superb coral bottoms surrounded by sand. Depending on the season, birds nest on the island. A real natural aquarium with exotic fish of improbable colors, it is an ideal place for snorkeling.
If you are passionate about history, we invite you to explore the famous Pointe Blévec Lighthouse.
There is swimming of course, the west coast of the island being one of the few places where it is possible. Diving for lovers of aquatic fauna and flora, in bottles or snorkeling.
Fishing of course, thanks to our motorized boats or the old-fashioned way in a canoe with a local fisherman.
Ile aux Nattes is dotted with local eateries, small restaurants where you can taste the dishes of the locals.
There’s a quaint local “disco”, La Case à Beby – you have to see it at least once. Otherwise, another legendary nightclub, La Case à Nono is located south of Sainte-Marie Island. The canoes cross the pass night and day.
From the place called “La Maison Blanche”, in the center of Île aux Nattes, a remarkable 360° view is offered to visitors…
