Toamasina (Tamatave)
The Essential
Overlooking the Indian Ocean, Tamatave (Toamasina) is Madagascar's main commercial port. The city has retained some of its former colonial appearance, with wide avenues lined with flamboyant trees and palm trees. A popular stopping point before a boat trip along the Pangalanes Canal, the city can be explored by rickshaw.
