Nosy-Be volcano is located on a small island off the NW coast of Madagascar. The volcano contains cinder cones and lava flows. The island covers an area of 300 sq km and reaches a summit at Mont Lokone at 450 m.

The island has been called Nosy Manitra (the scented island) because of the coffee, cocoa, vanilla, and cinnamon, which are intensively cultivated on the island.

The western side of the island contains eleven crater lakes, the largest being 1.5 km in diameter.
