Antsiranana, named Diego-Suárez prior to 1975, is a city at the northern tip of Madagascar.
Antsiranana is the capital of the Diana region and of the Antsiranana autonomous province.
Antsiranana has a natural harbour, but the remote location, and, until recently, bad road to the south, has made it rather unimportant for freight traffic.
