Anakao is a small coastal fishing town located on the southwest coast of Madagascar, 35 kilometres south of Toliara, and southwest of Soalara. It is inhabited by some 3000 individuals known as the Vezo people. Its picturesque coastal location has made it a desirable and notable resort getaway, including the Club Resort Anakao, Anakao Ocean Lodge, Prince Anakao, and Chez Emile hotels. There are some ancient monuments and tombs located near the point of the town. The topography is best described as rather flat, except where the sandy soil forms dunes. To the south are the villages of Ankilimivony and Ankiririsa.

The mist is heavy deep in the Madagascan rainforest and sweat drips from your brow after a full-day hike. Then you see it grazing among the bamboo thickets – the rare golden bamboo lemur – and your heart leaps.
