Quirimbas Archipelago

The Quirimbas Archipelago (or ‘Ilhas Quirimbas’ in Portuguese) is a beautiful string of 32 islands lying far north of Maputo. Stretching more than 100 kilometres along the coastline, the Quirimbas Islands offer unique, unspoilt accommodation choices for visitors all year round.

Beaches and waters in the Ilhas Quirimbas are still largely unpopulated and unexplored therefore ecologically pristine. The 11 southernmost islands and part of the mainland are protected under the Quirimbas Marine National Park.

Book the ultimate Mozambique Honeymoon experience in beach lodges, luxury resorts and rustic cabins – settled on white sands and looking into stunning sunsets over the ocean.

Quirimbas Archipelago Accommodation is designed to merge with the perfect landscape. Visitors can immerse themselves in the culture, the ancient history reflected in many old settlements and buildings or ruins. Ocean safaris, islands hopping day trips, water sports galore and relaxing dhow cruises make a holiday to these islands unforgettable.

Juicy fruits and delicious coconut rice are a typical accompaniment with most meals. Be sure to experience the Mozambican piri-piri – Portuguese in origin and made from crushed chillies.
