 Hell-Ville (Nossi-Be) - Shore Services

Communications

Post Office, just off Rue Passot, open 0700-1900. There is a telephone office next door from where one can make international calls.

There are 2 Cyber Cafe's in Hell Ville and a well established mobile phone net covers Antsiranana, Nosy Bee, Antananarivo and the areas around those towns. Land based phones are available in an ever increasing number.

Mobile phone connections with Telma are quite efficient with coverage all the way down the coast including places like Russian Bay, Moramba Bay and Baly Bay as well as towns. Coverage mostly slow 2G but stable.

Laundry

Nosy Komba has a good waterfall for doing laundry.

Provisions

Almost everything is available. Own brands are good value. Biggest supermarket is Champion in the town. Visa is OK.

Nosy Be market is out of town (a 10,000 Ar taxi ride). This is good and has probably the best selection of alcohol.

A small shop, Chez Mireille, near the fresh market has a surprisingly good selection of items, particularly cheese. Cash only.

The fresh market is good and prices are fair.

Posted on behalf of Stephen Poulson of SV Emerald Sea:
Spending time in Nosy Be and need a excellent tour guide to show you the highlights of Nosy Be? Thomas works at LemurLand, a small zoo, in Hellville, and provides tour guide services there in addition to island tour services (his time and that of a 3rd party vehicle). He has studied botany at college, fluent in English, French and Italian and has been recommended by a number of cruisers presently here including ourselves. He can be contacted at 0328824608.

After all the horrors of the pilot books re bribery, demands etc. our arrival was easy and pleasant.
Anchoring by moonlight in Crater bay was easy. This is now the preferred local anchorage with over 50 local and visiting boats, and an active small yacht club.
Next morning anchored off Hellville with the dinghy welcomed on the dock by Jimmy the current local fixit. Care of dinghy sublet immediately and we were guided on the rounds. Police(immigration), port, customs 1 and customs 2. Fees were posted on the walls and fully receipted. Fees totalled about 200000 Ariary for a 17m boat and 2 crew while very good lunch in the 2 1/2 hour office break brought the full total to 270000 local or $90.00.
