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.

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-minute 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.
