Fort Dauphin, the first French settlement in Madagascar, is now a haven for watersports enthusiasts.
Anyone with a penchant for watersports and a desire to inject a little action into their trip to Madagascar need look no further than this region on the south-east coast, which is the perfect place for experienced kitesurfers to let loose. Averaging 300 days of wind a year, ideal conditions for kitesurfing are all but guaranteed. A backdrop of wide bays and lake systems means it's pretty easy on the eyes to boot. While there are numerous spots in Madagascar for kitesurfing, Fort Dauphin is most certainly the pick of the bunch.
