Beroroha is a town in Atsimo-Andrefana Region, Madagascar. Made up of 17 villages, the commune has a total population of 17,000. The area was severely affected by the 2009 passage of Cyclone Fanele, and currently NGO HoverAid is working there as long-term development programmes are underway.

Beroroha lies on the Mangoky river, which is fast flowing, and can vary between 5 m and 500 m wide. The road to Beroroha is only possible with 4x4 and normally takes two days from Antananarivo.
