Andavadoaka is a small fishing village (pop. 1500) on the SW coast of Madagascar facing the Mozambique Channel. The village, with its ramshackle beach housing, is aside a shallow lagoon that opens to the ocean over a series of reefs. The corals and reef fish, due to their remoteness, are particularly varied. Andavadoaka is home to the Vezo fishing people, who are known for their dependence upon the ocean. They manage the marine area, for which their village received the Equator Prize (2007) awarded biennially for outstanding community efforts to reduce poverty and sustain the marine environment.

The seascapes here impress with the crystal clear water, limestone rock formations sculptured by the sea, and passing sdail boats with interesting configurations of sails. Close by the water are the buildings of the NGO Blue Ventures, a UK-based non-governmental organisation, which runs a field research site situated next to the village of Andavodoaka. Its aim is to improve the community and promote sustainable management of their marine resources. Inland there’s a baobab forest with trees that offer interesting photographic opportunities. As tourism increases, there are already a number of resorts and lodges to welcome visitors.

Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world. The Vezo hospital was built in 2008 in Andavadoaka, and financed exclusively by donations. Volunteers do all the medical and dental work (and translating) to serve the region. This is one of the few villages with electricity.
