This is Mozambique at its best and we are here to show you how to holiday like a champion along the coastline. You can choose to live like royalty in a five-star hotel with much entertainment and bright lights, or rather to kick off your shoes and live more naturally in a rustic eco lodge hidden in the sand dune forests.

Get to the islands first 

You can also choose to set off on a boat or a plane into the Indian Ocean to find an island to hide away on. Whatever your pleasure in Mozambique, you simply have to visit the Bazaruto Archipelago and 5 islands in the sun. Then the remote northern isles of the Quirimbas Archipelago which still offer soulful experiences lost in time. Yet you still find some of the best scuba diving in the world here, firstly off the port of Vilanculos and secondly off the harbour of Pemba.

The island for us was heaven on earth as we were so spoilt not only by the magnificent natural beauty but by Ann and her staff. The chefs prepared delicious meals , Tiago was always amiable to help us with the different activities – scuba diving, snorkelling , canoeing – Joanne’s magical hands worked wonders on my body and mind , the staff were always ready with our favourite drinks and Ann with her warm smile made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible.
