"Walk along the scenic..." Madagascar Favorite Tip by drolkar
Madagascar General: 63 reviews and 99 photos
Favorite thing: Walk along the scenic coastline in <font color=blue><b>TOAMASINA</font></b> and admire the unusual vegetation... The origin of the town's name is disputed: one theory is that it was derived from the Portuguese name for St. Thomas ('Sao Thomas'), while another alleges that it came about when King Radama I visisted the area in 1817. He reputedly tasted the sea water and pronounced 'Toa masina' -- 'It is salty.'
