A vacation city par excellence, it attracts local and international tourists throughout the year. Its unmissable sites, its cultural heritage and its mythical river port …
Tamatave is also a province rich in history and tradition.
The charisma and tropical architecture of the city will conquer you with the small Creole houses built on stilts and the remains of a colonial mansion on the Place Bien Aimé. For lovers of discovery, archaeological exhibits are on display at the regional museum.
It is not enough to visit Tamatave in a few hours or a day. Whatever your preference, you will appreciate the hidden treasures of this city of a thousand facets.
The sites and attractions not to be missed:
For swimming enthusiasts, it is not very advisable to swim in the sea in the city center. Residents and tourists prefer to travel more than 60 km to reach the seaside resorts of Foulpointe and Mahambo for swimming.
In the evening, enjoy a convivial moment at the “edge” while tasting small carefully prepared local recipes: masikitas (zebu skewers), fried cassava, grilled seafood?
For a family outing, there is no shortage of restaurants. During your visit, the tasting of the “Tamatave Soup” is a must not to be missed. Even in the other regions of Madagascar, these famous soups can be found in several restaurants and gargotes.
Come and discover Tamatave and let yourself be surprised.
