The climate of Nosy Be (Madagascar)
Nosy Be is an island off the northwest coast of Madagascar. The highest point on the island is Mount Lokobe with an altitude of 450 meters which can be ascended via a challenging hike. The city Andoany is the capital of the island and is also known as Hell-ville. The island is surrounded by a large number of small islands, several of which are inhabited. The largest and best known islands are: Nosy Komba, Nosy Mitsio, Nosy Sakatia and Nosy Tanikely. Nosy Be is very popular among tourists who come here to go diving and snorkeling. The island has a large number of bays and several beautiful coral reefs can be found off the island. The forests in the interior are inhabited by chameleons, lemurs and a unique small frog species. Nosy Be has a tropical savannah climate characterized by two distinct seasons, a dry season and a wet season. Most rain falls during summer which is from November till March. When the rain subsides temperatures slightly drop. These circumstances are very beneficial for all kinds of vegetation. Because Madagascar is an island situated in between two continents the country suffers quite a lot from the forces of nature. Trade winds may cause tropical storms, hurricanes are not uncommon either.
