"Seafront" Toamasina Things to Do Tip by Norali
Toamasina Things to Do: 8 reviews and 8 photos
During the day, seafront is interesting, packed of streetvendors (on stalls most of the time).
Nice beach along Bd Ratsimilaho especially between Pointe Asti and Pointe Tanio, where you have a great view of the district. But "NO BATH ALLOWED IN TOAMASINA CITY !" ... for a big reason: sea there abonds in sharks especially in Bd Ivondro area where stands the slaughterhouse...
See in this picture (in the background) the nice view of the beach. OK, forget about some mud at left side since Toamasina area uses to be at frontline as for tackling with cyclones.
Smaller streets that lead to Rue du commerce and boulevard Ratsimilaho (perpendicular to them) house warehouses. By wandering in those streets, you will be hit by vanilla, spices and clove fragrances since they are packing, weighing, shipping those marvels that have built Madagascar's image.
At night, streets are packed with kebab stalls. Beware though to not to walk at night! Rather hire a pousse- pousse or taxi. Though, Toamasina city is much safer than Tana in daylight.
