Cruises from Belo Sur Mer
Belo Sur Mer village is on the west coast of Madagascar facing the Mozambique Channel, and 90 km south of Morondava. It is situated amid a number of coastal inlets, and a lagoon flanked by sand dunes and fed by local rivers. The village is a regional shipbuilding centre and huge cargo vessels are still constructed on the beach just as they were four centuries ago, specializing in the large dhows known as boutres. Watch boat construction and if lucky watch the launching festival.
