Where is Toliara Located?
Toliara is a Malagasy town in the southwest of the island (French Tuléar) with large magnificent gardens and avenues lined with flame trees and tamari. They are also called the “capital of the South”. The colonial style is present everywhere in Toliara, but unfortunately, the city’s well-developed infrastructure suffered from the cyclone Haruna in 2013; many buildings and streets have been devastated. The city itself offers little to see, but is a good starting point to explore the dry southwest of Madagascar.
