This is what I had the pleasure of looking at for two days on the southwest coast of Madagascar. Its a small city of Ifaty with a great hotel where I made a great Malagasy friend. The most popular beaches in Madagascar are found on the northern coasts of the island while most beaches in the south are completely ignored. When I settled down I spent 3 days in the town of Anakao and has amazing views of the ocean and a small island by the name of Nose Ve (not to be confused with Nosy Be). If you are looking to relax I would definitely recommend hanging out in paradise in Madagascar.
