And the islands off this magnificent coastline are where you want to be!
From down south around Vilanculos and way up towards the border with Tanzania, the islands off the Mozambican mainland are utterly exquisite, tiny, remote and nowadays dotted with fabulous small lodges.
Each has a character of their own and whether you are indulging in complete luxury at Azura, on the Quirimbos archipelago or enjoying laid-back luxury at Marlin Lodge on Benguerra Island, the experience is completely compelling!
The islands saw little development over the past 30 years but with a stable country finally emerging, they are rapidly being developed.
Fortunately in the world of ecological and social responsibility, all development shows a deep concern for attaining green credentials and working with the local communities to ensure that there is maximum benefit for all!
To visit any of these islands both north and south, get to O. R. Tambo International, Johannesburg and take a connecting flight one of the hubs serving the islands off Mozambique. Another short connection (by fixed wing, helicopter or sea) gets you onto you own private island heaven.
Beach villas are truly that – walk out access directly onto the soft white sand and clear turquoise warm water and then…. do nothing or do any number of things: play it your way!
Snorkel, fish, scuba, sail, windsurf, kayak, visit local communities, watch turtle behaviour, visit historic sites like Ibo island once a collection point for slave trading, whale and dolphin watch, have the best, most romantic honeymoon, eat fabulous crab curry and more delectable island-style dishes, be utterly captivated by the islands and their people!
Or see something that has been seen by very few! Elephant at Nuarro Lodge take to the sea from time to time so adapted are they to their coastal lifestyle and habitat!
In Mozambique, even the ellies like to swim in the sea!
