The site is composed of bays, rivers and estuaries located in the coastal zone of the Ampasindava peninsula. The relief of the peninsula is very much marked, with cuestas and outcrops of lias, sandstone and schist, dissected by many rivers (the main ones being the Bemanevika, Barimahamay and Anafiafy). The coastal vegetation consists of mangrove woodland, sometimes interrupted by littoral forest.
