An idyllic tropical setting made up of five unspoilt islands, the Bazaruto Archipelago is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Set just off the coastline of Mozambique, the islands offer you a true escape from the stresses of everyday life and are sure to inspire with their coral pink beaches, luxury accommodation, abundance of marine life, including the elusive dugong, as well as a host of water and land activities that are guaranteed to change your life.
These island gems, Bazaruto, Benguerra, Maraque, Banque and Santa Carolina, are best known as world-class fishing and diving locations and for good reason. When you head out onto the water expect to see dolphins, sharks, humpback whales and more pass you by as you head into deeper waters for the ultimate challenge of catching big game fish from the mighty Dorado to the famed Blue and Black marlin. Closer into shore you can go scuba-diving or snorkelling around the stunning coral reefs alive with thousands of brightly coloured tropical fish and anemones.
A protected National Park, the Bazaruto Archipelago, is an exclusive destination and regardless of the luxury accommodation you choose, you are assured privacy and an exceptional experience. On land the bird life is fantastic as is the range of eco-systems from forests, lakes to savannah and wetlands.
Look forward to romantic sunset cruises, flavourful foods including the freshest possible seafood, supreme comforts and exemplary service at this luxury destination. You will fly into Vilanculos International Airport, a small coastal town on the mainland, and be transferred by boat or small plane to the island of your choice. Have a look at the luxury accommodation available in this region.
The archipelago is a paradise for scuba divers because of the crystal-clear water and the sheer abundance of fish species. Wind your way around untouched coral reefs and ridges and amongst a host of tropical fish as well as manta rays and barracuda. Some of the best known dive spots include Two-Mile Reef (also great for snorkelling), Manta Ray Reef, Potholes and Brindle Bass Ridge.
So you have done the snorkelling, cruised the islands, taken the tour of local markets and now are looking for something completely different? It is possible in this location to go on a camelback beach ride which takes you along the shore of the island with a few stops along the way.
