This remote, sleepy outpost is a Veso settlement perhaps best known as the site where impressive dhows/ schooners are built, along designs taught to certain families centuries back by European pirates. But Belo Sur Mer is also the access point to the wonderful Kirindy Mite National Park, where visitors have the chance to explore deciduous Baobab forests, Spiny forest on the dunes; a healthy mangrove system and offshore, 5 small islands where snorkelling is good.
Getting to Belo Sur Mer is part of the adventure: the drive from Morondava takes around 4hrs,30min and entails negotiating some poor roads and river crossings. An alternative is the 2hr,30min transfer by motorised boat.
Belo Sur Mer can be visited from May to November - outside of that period the road becomes impassable. A 4 night stay is recommended; this makes for a wonderful end to the busy Western circuit.
