    Mahalina Navigation

About Mahalina

Mahalina is a municipality on the beautiful island of Madagascar. It is packed with it's own character, friendly locals and relaxing landscapes that make you want to simply take a deep breath and enjoy life. In Mahalina travellers keep themselves busy by using the basketful of watersport activities. Mahalina is a great destination to enjoy snorkelling, kayaking and fishing. When you're not exercising your adventurous side in the ocean, then you may find tranquility in taking a walk along Mahalina beach, taking a scenic hike, or just capturing photographs of the surrounding area.

Mahalina locals know how to have a good time. Here we have a group showing off their culture proudly through dance.
