The whales festival will take place next month. It’s an event not to be missed because it happens once a year in this paradisiac tropical island. This time, Nosy Borahawill celebrates this festival from July 11 to 14, 2019. This blessed island, with the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, attracts humpback whales to breed and raise their babies. Every winter, they migrate south from July to September and go back to Antarctica afterward.
The festival is not only created for a pure tourist dimension but also fo a cultural and environmental dimension. All actors of the event will be focused on one thematic: “Humpback whales protection”. Apart from that, with the participation of the local population, the program will be well varied. Animations, parades and the big carnival will be on the menu.
Moreover, you will not regret visiting Sainte-Marie Island, a very appreciated place. The beauty of nature reminds of a paradisiac tropical postcard, especially its lush vegetation, seabed, lagoons, coral construction, an exceptional landscape, and diverse touristic sites.
