Port Overview

The port of Belo sur Tsiribihina is the terminal point on the Tsiribihina River.

The main function of this port is to be the end point for the tourist boats that descend the Tsibihina from Miandrivaso and the arrival for the the vehicles using the ferry to come from Morondava.

Due to the good condition of the road coming from Morondava, this port is not used for the supply of the city but the surrounding villages come here to purchase and commerce with motor boats.

While this port is well known in the region, it remain undeveloped, there is no wharf or other infrastructure, but APMF is on site to control and supervise the port activities.
