Overview

The South of Madagascar is the most arid region of the island and also the most unique one in terms of scenery and flora. This bushy extension is spattered with forest and it is the only place on earth where travelers can admire the spiny forest, a semi-desert ecosystem formed by huge cactus-like plants which only grow here. The route along the southern coast is full up of huge white-sanded and almost empty beaches.
