It seems that wealthy travellers are increasingly arriving by luxury yacht to explore this relatively untouched playground where 32 Quirimbas Islands, in all their exquisite remoteness, are becoming more accessible. Here, “yachties” can have their own space, on water, and spend their days swimming, snorkelling, diving, kayaking and lazing on dazzling white beaches. And, to crown it all, the region is known for its fascinating history and culture, attracting all kinds of travellers to sample its treasures.
A holiday on one of the Quirimbas Archipelago islands will probably be the best decision you make all year. Combine your sailing safari with a few days on these remote islands, off the coast of northern Mozambique close to Pemba, still relatively untouched with the Indian Ocean around them a diver’s paradise. Book a special island package to Ibo, Azura Quilalea, Matemo or Medjumbe Islands and be surprised by the wondrous settings, white beaches and sparkling clear blue seas!
Once known as the Islands of Lazarus, the Quirimbas Archipelago is brimming with history – Arab trading posts and Portuguese trading routes dominated these seas many decades ago. Take Ibo Island for example – architecture here dates back to the 1500′s when forts served as military bastions and slave trading houses lined the shores. Today, Ibo is a melting pot of influences from Africa, the Arab region, India and Europe. And your yacht will berth here for a few days while you breathe it all in!
