Madagascar is a large island off the coast of Sub- Saharan Africa in the Indian ocean. Tourists don't always think of Madagascar as a worthy destination, but many should reconsider their thoughts. Filled with rainforests, sandy beaches, and facinating tribal cultures, Madagascar could be a dream! This dream is located only 248 miles from Mozambique, but the change is drastic! It was formed from continental drift, rather than volcanic activity, and it tore off African mainand about 165 million years ago. Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world, following Greenland, New Guinea, and Borneo. Australia is considered a continent as so it is not included in this list.
