In a spirit of conviviality, Ocean Lodge invites you to come and practice kitesurfing or windsurfing in a paradisiacal setting, the bay of Sakalava in Madasgascar.

You will be comfortably installed in one of the 9 bungalows of Ocean Lodge and can relax while enjoying the bar and restaurant.
To fully experience your kitesurfing vacation, we offer a choice of bungalows (depending on the number of people), feet in the water and facing the sea.

Everything is planned on site so that your kite or windsurf stay remains an unforgettable memory.

Confirmed kitesurfers benefit from supervised sessions, take-off and landing assistance, assistance in the event of difficulty, for safe navigation. A storage area for your free equipment and rinsing is available.

Ocean Lodge in Sakalava Bay : a paradise for kitesurfers and windsurfers of all levels.

Beginners or experienced will be enchanted by this magical place.

Its wild and privileged location, its warm (between 25 ° and 30 °) and transparent waters are a real delight.

It is not only the beauty of its landscape that makes it successful, but also its protected location thanks to its magnificent coral reef which surrounds the bay and protects it from the swells.

This gives it maximum security. Its sandy bottom avoids unpleasant surprises. These characteristics make it an ideal spot for learning about board sports or improving your skills. There are also easily accessible reef waves for the more experienced.

The permanent and regular winds (between 20 and 40 knots) in season of the Varatraza (March to November) make it a place where it is practically sure to be able to ride all the time. The Varatraza is a trade wind which is reinforced thanks to the reliefs and the situation of the cape of the bay of Sakalava. It is at its maximum from June to September.

With wind stats of 98% force 4 or higher, there is little risk of staying on the beach and not being able to sail.

I've spent some lovely nights at the Ocean Lodge and many good meals. The team takes great care of the guests and is very attentative, be it for the accommodation, restaurant, bar or wind-/kitesurf school and rental. I love their home-made foie-gras and will be back once travel restrictions ease!

5 star rating Perfect kitesurf spot We first stayed in a different hotel; but switched as soon as we could to Ocean Lodge. There aren’t many places around, so we soon found out that Ocean Lodge is basically the place to be if you want to have a nice dinner. That’s how we found it and found out why it was fully booked aswell. Luckily we extended our stay and as said we moved to Ocean Lodge. Close to the kiteschool so I didn’t have to get up too early, close to the hostel (cause that’s where the party was at) and in our own comfortable cabin. The lodges are spacious, clean and comfortable and they have hot water; which is always nice. The view on the beach is amazing and everything is more than comfortable. The only sidenote is that only the owner speaks English, the rest of the staff is trying; but also quickly revert to french as soon as you ask questions. Seeing as my french is as good as their english; it led to some akward conversations. That aside; the staff is superfriendly and ready to help you with anything; which is perfect in an area where everyone is kitesurfing. All in all; highly recommended and definitely a place to come back to!

Beautiful place with very nice Bungalows. They have a good kitchen with very good and varied menu. They teach kite and windsurfing. My girlfriend and I really love this place and will be back some day. The kite condition are one of the best I ever have been to. The staff are just wonderful. Everyone of them smiled the whole day and made the session special! We arrived as guest and left as friends 🙂

Everthing was perfect. The lodge is very new, the staff is super friendly and helpful! One of the best thing is the restaurant which belongs to the lodge. The menu changes every day and everything was fresh and super tasty! On our arrival I recognized that my Board was nearly broken (transport damage) and the guys fixed it for me. The kite spot is amazing, flat water in the bay and some waves over the reef in front of the bay. The kite instructors had always good tips, also without booking kite lessons. Everyone of them smiled the whole day and made the session special! We arrived as guest and left as friends :).

3 star rating Nice place. We had dinner here 2 times and one lunch. The quality of the food was generally good. Some of the worker was not so serviceminden. Felt almost one time that they didn't want us to eat according to the approach. Some of the stuff speak not so good English. Try to speak franch whit us witch is not so successful. Generally the place is very good location and have a good potential!
