Access to a variety of habitats in a compact area, makes Sainte Luce Reserve a rewarding birding destination. The coastal forest is home to a lot of specials, many of them unique to the country. Night walks are great to see some nocturnal species, such as Madagascar scops owl. A boat trip through the mangroves is recommended to pick up some of the seabirds and waders as well as perching water-associated birds, such as the colorful Madagascar kingfisher.
