Diego Suarez or « Antsiranana » = the port, was a good strategic spot since 1884. The French established a naval base here in the late 19th century ( until 1973 ). Today Antsiranana is an important harbour. There are some beautiful bays there, such as Ramena bay, Sakalava bay, Dunes bay & the emerald sea. Talking about tourism, the highlights are the Amber Mountain National Parc with its waterfalls & the Tsingy of Ankarana ( limestone formations ) with its caves and grottoes.
