Cap Sainte Marie
Cap Sainte-Marie is the top South point of the country. Also called Tanjona Vohimena, this area is 250 km from Fort-Dauphin and around sixty kilometers from Tsihombe. It is particularly famous for its magnificent sandy beach and its sumptuous dunes. We should not forget the Cap Sainte-Marie special reserve, home to two species of tortoises in danger of extinction: radiata tortoise and arachnoid pyxis. In the dunes, you can sometimes see a lizard from the endemic sand of the region and pieces of shells of elephant birds (vorombe, an extinct species). Offshore, you can observe the migration of humpback whales from June to October.
