Discover unspoilt beaches & a unique Afro-Euro vibe in Mozambique
Mozambique and the archipelagos clustered around the mainland is the vision of a perfect island holiday. From the crystal-clear, calm waters to the broad, white-sand beaches and swaying coconut palms, Mozambique has it all. The teeming waters circling the islands are prized as top-notch sites for snorkellers and scuba divers who not only want to capitalise on the magnificent aquatic underworld but also live the good life after diving. Whether in the vibrant capital city of Maputo or at an island beach bar, there’s action or relaxation, whichever takes your fancy.
This is today’s Mozambique, but still retaining the charm of the past. Over the last few decades, Mozambique has developed into a tourist mecca with all the ingredients of a perfectly rounded holiday: magnificent beaches, watersports, nature, art, historical traditions and legendary seafood.
For a dream island getaway, head to the island of Bazaruto, where the fishing is excellent and the beaches breathtaking. Rivalling that are the islands of the Quirimbas Archipelago, where you’ll find the ultimate escape in azure waters. In Maputo, only the best of Mozambique’s Portuguese colonial past lingers, providing an intoxicating Euro-Afro vibe with pavement cafés, live music and first-class seafood restaurants.
