Manafiafy Beach & Rainforest Lodge Highlights

Located on the southern coast of Madagascar, Manafiafy Beach and Rainforest Lodge offers the chance to explore the wild south coast beach, mangroves, lemur forests and astounding landscapes. Accessing the lodge begins at the seaside town of Fort Dauphin from where guests will be driven to Manafiafy, via little fishing villages and lush, grasslands, as the 2 hour drive mingles toward the coast. The lodge is stunningly situated mere yards from a pristine beach bordered by lush forest and striking granite boulders.

Employing local craftsmen and locally-sourced natural materials, the main area of the ladge has been constructed and designed in a stunningly African style, using wood and ravinala thatch. The high ceiling houses a bar and dining area, and a wonderful sunken fire pit, fitting for the chillier winter evenings. Outside there is a deck area overlooking a lawn which leads down to the beach. Six chalets are nestled into the border forest, each overlooking the beach, and all en suite with superb bathrooms and showers. The rooms are spacious and interesting with enormous windows and sliding doors leading to a terrace with plenty of sun loungers, a shower and a hammock. At this scenic location, guests are invited to enjoy their meals in private environment on the terrace.

Manafiafy Beach & Rainforest Lodge Activities

The lodge offers a large variety of activities for guests. Swimming and snorkelling in the sheltered bay is enchanting, and day and night walks in the rainforest allows guests to spot lemurs and birds endemic to Madagascar. Between July and November the lodge employs a speedboat that affords guests the opportunity to be taken out to sea to see the whales and their young learning to breach. The lodge also has a selection of canoes and a larger boat used for trips into the mangroves for birdwatching; truly memorable time spent in the lush green forest with the ubiquitous Traveller’s Palm. Sunbirds and kingfishers can often be seen, along with larger water birds, including a variety of heron. A highlight of the mangrove trip is a short walk across to a beautiful, wild, deserted beach. Guests can also visit the local school, village and market on a guided walk.
