<googlemap version'''The larger harbour village of Vinanivao is located in a bay on the south-east coast of the Masoala Peninsula. From Vinanivao boats leave direction [[Cap Est]] in the north or [[Cap Masoala]] to the south, or even around the peninsula until [[Maroantsetra]].''' {| class="imageTable"|-|colspan="3" | [[File:Vinanivao 004.jpg|600px]]|-|[[File:Vinanivao 059.jpg|196px]]|align="center"|[[File:Vinanivao 048.jpg|196px]]|align="0right"|[[File:Vinanivao 051.jpg|196px]]|-|[[File:Vinanivao 005.9jpg|196px]]|align="center" lat|[[File:Vinanivao 002.jpg|196px]]|align="right"|[[File:Vinanivao 026.jpg|196px]]|} Along the main road of the village, there are many small shops and market stalls selling all kind of needy things (food, clothes, mobile phones, hardware, bike repair, farming and cooking utensils, liquor shops, ...). Vinanivao has a primary school. [[File:Vinanivao 040.jpg|600px]] Vinanivao lies at the mouth of a river entering the sea. This is also where the village got its name from: ''vinany'' means in Malagasy "the estuary of a river at the sea" and ''vao'' is the Malagasy name for a fish. Just outside the harbour there are islets in the bay. [[File:Vinanivao 054.jpg|600px]] A very basic hotel with bungalows and a restaurant is located directly at the harbour. For those seeking a quieter place for a more relaxed sleep there is a better hotel on the outskirts of the village (see photos): A 10-15minute walk from the harbour along the road direction [[Antalaha]] leads to an enclosed property (on the right side of the road) with 10 simple but clean bungalows and shared cold water bucket shower/toilet. In 2015 the price for a night was 10,000 Ariary.883846 {| class=" lonimageTable"|-|colspan="503" | [[File:Vinanivao 076.jpg|600px]]|-|[[File:Vinanivao 077.275739jpg|196px]]|align="center" zoom|[[File:Vinanivao 009.jpg|196px]]|align="15right" controls|[[File:Vinanivao 011.jpg|196px]]|} From Vinanivao transport via motorbike direction Antalaha is available.
