Program

Typical day

Early rise for a 6 a.m.-ish breakfast (depending on tide and weather) and surf the waves out front till around 12 p.m. Then back to the camp for a warm solar-heated shower and lunch.

Trade winds in southern Madagascar come out of the South to Southwest and blow every afternoon so afternoons are usually dedicated to relaxing, yoga, drinking beer, kite surfing (bring your own gear), visit the local village, or go sailing with the locals on a pirogue. Apero and dinner to finish the day.

Location

Madagascar Surf Resort is in the remote South West of Madagascar, one of the last remaining surfing frontiers. The resort is located at the north end of the remote beach village of Befasy, a few hours boat ride from the southern port of Toliara, or “City of the Sun”.

The surf resort offers direct access to a private beach and a variety of perfect waves on the outer reef to suit abilities from improver to elite athletes, just 5 minutes by boat.

During the winter surf season, the water is around 25 degrees Celsius with crystal clear water and your average surf ranging from 2 to 6 feet. Bigger days or just a change of scenery, a trip to Anakao can be arranged where the very easy and playful wave called Jelly Babies is. For more experienced surfers, Flame Balls is the spot.

Madagascar

Madagascar is a dream destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Measuring 1600 kilometers (1000 miles) in length and 650 kilometers (406 miles) across at its widest, Madagascar is the world’s fourth largest island. A mountainous central ‘spine’ separates the permanently damp east from the drier west and sub-desert south.

Madagascar Surf Resort's surf spots get a direct hit from the South West swells with mainly offshore conditions and 700 kilometers (438 miles) of varied coral reef to explore. The resort can also arrange exploration of new undiscovered spots for surfers with an adventurous spirit.

Food

You will be provided with three meals a day included in the price. Meals are typically western-style meals with a Malagasy flair to it. Majority of the meals are seafood bought locally from the fisherman in the village next door. Beers, alcohol, soft drinks, and water for sale at the camp.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
  • Dinner

The following dietary requirement(s) are served and/or catered for:

  • Regular (typically includes meat and fish)
  • Other dietary requirements on request
If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate it to the organiser when making a reservation

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Ivato International Airport (TNR) and book a domestic flight to Toliara Airport (TLE).

Once you arrive in Antananarivo, you need to get an internal flight to Tulear, spend the night in Tulear, take a 1.5 to 2 hour boat ride in the morning to Anakao and Madagascar Surf Resort will pick you up in Anakao. Another 1-hour boat ride or 1-hour 4x4 ride will take you to the camp depending on the weather.

When booking your flights, if possible try to arrive early in the day in Antananarivo so that you can get your connecting flight out of Antananarivo down to Tulear the same day you arrive. If this option is not possible, Madagascar Surf Resort would suggest staying the night at Le Chat’O Park Hotel, a short ride away from the airport in Antananarivo where transfers to and from the airport will be arranged. Each night costs from 35 EUR (145,000 MGA) to 50 EUR (207,500 MGA).

Once in Tulear, you will have to stay the night to get the Anakao express in the morning. There are two options:

Staying out of town and in more luxury at the Auberge de la table from 45 EUR (185,000 MGA) to 69 EUR (283,000 MGA) per night.

The Manatane Hotel in Tulear, which is right on the main road where you can experience the wild Tulear nightlife or explore the city from 7 EUR (30,000 MGA) to 12 EUR (50,000 MGA) per night.

Taxi transfers will be arranged and waiting for you at the airport to take you to the hotel and to the jetty in the morning. The Anakao express (the boat transfer to Anakao) leaves every morning at 7:30 a.m. but be sure to be there before 7 a.m. to avoid any delays en-route. All travel arrangements can be organized and pre-booked for you and your travel party but will be at your own cost.

Once you have arrived in Anakao you will get off the boat in front of chez Amil where either the Madagascar Surf Lodge boat or 4x4 will be waiting for you to bring you to the camp (included in your package).

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 16.94% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
