Nosy Iranja is located southwest of Nosy Be island, on the Bay of Russians about 27 nautical miles or about 1h30 by boat from the port of Hell-Ville.
The beauty of the island is on the island itself, in fact, it consists of two islands connected by a 1 km white sandbank totally submerged at high tide. The largest island called Iranja Be (big) is home to a fishing village and the second island called Iranja Hely (small), however is a private island only accessible at low tide. Iranja is also famous for the wonderful sight of the birth of sea turtles, in fact, if you are lucky, you can witness the hatching of the eggs. Needless to say, it’s an unforgettable sight.
