Mikea Lodge offers quality, family/owner-run accommodation and excellent hospitality at remote Andravona, between Tulear and Morombe, on south-western Madagascar's sunny coast.
Accommodation consists of ten comfortable tented en-suite rooms, each with open-air shower and toilet. The open air restaurant has a bar and deck, where delicious meals are served by a talented chef and his team who utilise fresh seafood and locally produced fruit and vegetables.
Activities include snorkelling, fishing (there is a watersports centre), whale watching (July - August), kitesurfing (August - December when the 'Tsiokatimo' wind blows)/ paddling, jet-skiing and excursions by quadbikes.
Swimming is safe off the quiet beaches.

Alternatively, driving from the lodge to Tulear in a 4WD takes appox 3hrs,30min. If roads are impassable, speedboat transfers from Tulear to Mikea Lodge take 3 hours (subject to weather conditions).
