East coast beach resorts

** or Toamasina province
Tamatave is the French name of Toamasina.

The thought of going to Toamasina always gives me thrills. I like this region, with a strange weather (see my warning tips in Toamasina city page). Nice place to relax, home of holidaymakers. That makes Toamasina city resemble capital city, Tana, in winter holidays. So many Tananarivians go there, escaping from Tana rythme and cold, that you sometimes think you are in Tana. You kind of see same faces as in the capital city.

Therefore, my preference is escaping in Toamasina suburbs though I have to admit that scenery in Toamasina city street is a great souvenir for me. Seeing holidaymakers and their kind of "capital-city-inhabitants-doing-provinces" attitude is just funny... soo ridiculous at same time!

Here is a pic from my Mahavelona (Foulpointe) page. Go there to see more.

Tana-Toamasina, lovely trip!

Roadtrip is part of adventure and excitment as well. See why in my below "Heading East" Tlogues.

My albums on Tana- Toamasina are just released. Have a look at my below Tlogues: "Heading East I, II"

Toamasina city, a lot to say about it!

Have a look at my Toamasina city pages.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lush fauna and flora, exciting roadtrip and railtrip to do
  • Cons:Too rainy and for years, Toamasina city is home of adult tourism :-(
  • In a nutshell:Worth discovering wild areas, bustling Toamasina city

    A favorite trip of mine is to find a quiet coastal area like you have on your page. Would like this place I am sure.
