Fort Dauphin- beaches - area

It was suggested by a travel agent that we come to Fort Dauphine, not sure if its because they wanted to sell us their package but would appreciate any information about the area. What beaches like, are there some beach bars, bit of night life,(not clubs) but local restaurants, bars etc and is their snorkelling, other excurtions from around there. Travelling with kids in mid twenties. Will be in early January.

Can't believe that there is so little on this forum, why?

Why ? Because it's a long way to everywhere and very few tourists go there. Also the South of Madagascar has security issues, oif which I'm not a specialist.

I visited it, but it was 15 years ago.

Thanks for your reply. We have decided to go to Nosy Be instead. This Madagascar forum is so quiet. Cant get too much info or replies, so thanks.

You can find more activity on Madagascar in the most popular French forums such as voyageforum and routard as the majority of tourists is French.
