Allow pro dive instructors to guide you around the Bazaruto Archipelago pristine coral reefs brimming with more than 200 species of fish.

The luxury cruise boats take you out from Vilanculos on full day inclusive packages to snorkel the larger islands and explore the smaller isles where once explorers trod, and old hotels rang with the sounds of parties. Deep sea fishing for huge silver game fish, a plush cruise on the fanciest catamaran you ever saw, or a scenic helicopter flip over your hotel and the ocean – this is what a Mozambique beach holiday is all about! 

Did we mention that kitesurfing in Bazaruto is world class? Catch the wind in a kitesurfing baptism, learn how to kite surf or join a kiting safari. Vilanculos is kite surfing mecca, or it boils down to stand up paddle boarding when the wind dies. If ocean sports don’t light your fire, we recommend the Govuro river canoe trip and its astonishing combination of unspoilt riverine wetlands hosting jaw dropping biodiversity. Get up early for the dawn canoe trail or set off later for a sunset excursion to see frogs, dazzling birds, fireflies and stars.

When we arrived at Vilanculos Beach Lodge we first saw the mind-blowing lush green oasis in front of us, with beautiful big palm trees, a sparkling blue welcoming rim flow pool and impressive views over the turquoise ocean. We were lazy some days as it felt just right to lie around here at the Beach Lodge beside the pool, going for long beach walks and swimming in the super warm clear sea. We made new friends with the staff, so accommodating and friendly!
