Ankevo is a small hamlet of fishermen located half the way between Morondava and Belo sur Mer. The peaceful environment, the superb beach and the crystal clear ocean, along with the opportunity of contributing to a laudable local initiative to support community tourism make a stay worthwhile. You can stay overnight at one of the basic bungalows built by the local people and enjoy the hospitality of the villagers. The praise-worthy project has even an own internet site. Check under: www.ankevo.com. For reservations you can contact Mrs Vallen of Madaconnection (see address in Morondava) for further information. They also organize a boat transfer. You can visit our section about Community tourism to know more about this and other similar projects in Madagascar.
