Diego Suarez, whose Malagasy name is Antsiranana, is a pleasant port town in the Indian Ocean, rocked by the trade winds, which enjoys a pleasant temperature. Indeed, it is sheltered by the immense bay of Diego Suarez, itself formed by the succession of 4 bays of white sand. The Tuk Tuk is the best way to get around, convenient and inexpensive: around 15 cents per ride per person.

The central Rue Colbert is a lively artery, lined with small terraces and souvenir shops where you can find excellent spices (at Baobab) and very good chocolate from Madagascar. You will not fail to visit the typical market of fresh produce, vegetables, meat, fish and admire the unique architecture, witness to the colonial and military past of the city. Place Joffre opens up a lovely view of the port. You can have a meal or a refreshing drink in a restaurant, for example at Melville or Tsara Be. In the evening, the city comes alive to the sound of atmospheric bars like Le Taxi Be or Le Valliné which offer live music and later, for night owls, two nightclubs with a tropical atmosphere, La Boite Noire and Le Nouvel Hotel, take over until the early hours of the morning.
