The bay of Diego Suarez is one of the world's most beautiful deep-water harbours, complete with a photogenic sugarloaf mountain. The town has an enchanting, colonial feel about it. This is the largest city of the north with a huge cosy market, a range of fine restaurants and some fantastic places and national parks to visit nearby. Linger and discover the decaying colonial architecture (the old covered market and the former Hotel de la Marine for seafarers are notable examples), the vibrant market and the wealth of crafts workshops. A particular pleasure of walking around Diego is the unexpected variety of stunning views over the bay, seemingly around almost every corner. A day trip to the nearby beach at Ramena is very recommendable. Ramena is a small village with a sandy uncrowded beach, which does not seem to have benefited much from the tourists excepting some hotels and restaurants on the spot.
