Mozambique

Unwind off the shore of this southeastern African country

Mozambique stretches down the coast of Southeast Africa, but we tend to prefer heading offshore to its Indian Ocean islands. There are two main archipelagos, Bazaruto and Quirimbas, both of which boast powder white beaches, crystal clear waters and a remarkably fine selection of beach hideaways and hotels.

For the ultimate scuba diving and snorkeling destination, choose the Quirimbas National Park. The park conserves coastal forest, coral reefs and mangroves, and you’ll see dolphin, sea turtle and seahorse, as well as numerous species of tropical fish. Above the surface of the water, explore the rich mangrove ecosystem in a kayak or shallow bottomed boat.
 
The lively coastal town of Vilanculos is the gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago. Two of the four islands here are uninhabited; the others have a few small villages scattered between the wild orange and cashew nut trees. There are some elegant beach lodges here, most notably Azura Benguerra, and you can spend your days swimming, diving, and snorkeling, island hopping, or admiring the huge and magnificent flocks of flamingo and pelican in the Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary.

Accommodation:
Azura Quilalea
Azura Quilalea is your private island retreat in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Mozambique. Completely detached from the rest of the world, you can enjoy the eco chic resort in a pristine marine environment. It’s the island Robinson Crusoe wished he was marooned on.
Accommodation:
Vamizi Island
&Beyond Vamizi Island is an idyllic coral island in Mozambique’s Quirimbas Archipelago. It’s a remarkable place, pristine for diving and snorkeling amongst the turtle, endangered dugong and whale, which you can also see on sunset sailing ventures on the Indian Ocean.
Accommodation:
Azura Benguerra
The award winning Azura Benguerra is an eco friendly paradise and one of Africa’s most luxurious island hideaways. The unspoilt island is within a marine national park, where traditional wooden dhows criss cross the water and divers are enthralled by the prismatic sea life beneath the waves.
