Just off the southeastern coast of Africa, Madagascar was uncharted territory for the swimsuit crew.

Royal Beach has several outdoor activities for tourists, including snorkeling and big-game fishing. And if you’re famished after spending time on the beach, go dining on Iranja where most restaurants serve traditional, local cuisine, according to model Chanel Iman. 960 1280
