THE LOST PARADISE
Tropical islands without the mass tourism hotels is what Mozambique is most famous for. With over 2500 kms of Indian Ocean Coastline, and many archipelagos, private islands and protected marine reserves, this destination is ideal for those wanting to ” wash off the safari dust” for some rest and relaxation, in beautiful small island resorts with a handful of chalets or villas within spitting distance of the ocean. Snorkelling, scuba, sunset cruises, marlin fishing and seafood feasts are the order of the day.
Africa’s premier beach destination.
Ample coral reefs along the coastline make Mozambique a mecca for scuba diving and snorkelling.
Game-fishing—especially for marlin, sailfish, and bonefish—is popular here.
The ever-popular Bazaruto Archipelago has something for everyone.
The Quirimbas Archipelago consists of over 30 coral reef islands scattered across 400 kilometres.
Unspoiled, undeveloped, and untamed, Mozambique is fast-emerging on the international tourism circuit with its wild beauty and exotic influences. Some 1,500 miles of rugged, creamy coastline are met by world-class coral reefs, primed for swimming, snorkelling, and sunset sailing. True African culture immerses all the senses in the Art Deco-inspired capital, Maputo. Luxury-lusters will delight in the string of exclusive private islands, where white-hot sands seemingly melt into the translucent Indian Ocean.
