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.

Along the main road of the village, there are many small shops and market stalls selling all kind of needy things (food, cloth, mobile phones, hardware, bike repair, farming and cooking utensils, liquor shops, ...). Vinanivao has a primary school.

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.
