The Emerald Sea in the north of Madagascar is a perfect place for water sports thanks to a constant 30 knot wind, which blows non stop between April and November. Locals name this period “Varatraza season”, which means “the season of trade winds”. The large coral lagoon has a rich marine life. One might frequently catch sight of manta rays and sea turtles roaming in the turquoise waters. In the breaks between kitesurfing, it's worth to explore the islands: Nosy Diego, Nosy Suarez and Nosy Antaly Be.
