Mahambo: "This is a lovely beach resort with safe swimming, offering a more tranquil alternative to Foulpointe with excellent beaches and four great and consistent surfing spots (two surf schools, Pil Pil Manga and Summer Sessions, rent out boards and gear). You can also take a pirogue trip up a nearby river." Madagascar: the Bradt Guide; www.bradtguides.com
