The small village Ratsianarana is located in a bay on the Masoala peninsula on the east coast of Madagascar. The village has a shop and a hotel.
The next village south of Ratsianarana is Antsahambavy and the next village north is Ankiana.
However, there is also a village about 4km inland of Ratsianarana which will be by-passed when taking the road closer to the coastline and which is a bit less distance when coming from the south. To take this shorter route, turn right at S15°28.454' E050°25.923'. Additionally, shortly before this turning point, there is another small village appearing on Google's satellite map at S15°28.924' E050°25.736' (-15.480270, 50.429242). What is the name of this village? Anyone, please post the name of the village here.
