As the town's coat of arms (a baobab tree and three dhows) testifies, Majunga (Mahajanga) is the most important port on the west of the island. In turn capital of the Boina Sakalava kingdom, a colonial trading post, and the main centre of the province, this is a cosmopolitan town with attractive reminders of its past, such as coast roads, mosques and cathedrals.
