Accommodation

Combine idyllic islands with the Kruger

Home to some of the most unspoilt Indian Ocean islands in Africa, Mozambique is fast becoming a favourite for among romantic travellers as it is for those seeking the quintessential tropical beach experience: coral reefs, deserted beaches & ocean-edge dining under the stars.

Our recommended Mozambique accommodation lies on the Bazaruto and Quirimbas archipelagos. Many of our top choices are natural honeymoon destinations but we’ve also included family-friendly lodges as well as those that will appeal to water sports enthusiasts, snorkellers and scuba divers. You can expect high standards of accommodation, service and cuisine at these island lodges as well as plenty of privacy. Several offer spa treatments and massages; others organise horseback safaris, sunset dhow cruises and whale watching.

What to Do

Your Mozambique beach holiday

1. Kick Off your Shoes

Mozambique’s long Indian Ocean coast is dusted with clusters of tropical islands; expect gorgeous white-sand beaches & well-placed hammocks at both family-friendly resorts & honeymoon hideaways.

2. Grab a Mask & Snorkel

Home to marine reserves & private conservation islands, Mozambique’s archipelagos offer some of the best snorkelling & diving in Africa. Snorkel along a reef near shore of the islands.

3. Ride a Horse on the Beach

Thunder along a beach on horseback, sunny Mozambique is one of the best places to do it. Horse safaris are offered on the Vilanculos coast & Benguerra Island – the ride ends with a swim for the two of you!

4. Escape to a Private Island

Mozambique’s Quirimbas Archipelago is where you’ll experience ‘Crusoe-chic’ at its most sophisticated: exclusive-use islands, tucked-away villas & palm-fringed pampering. It’s the perfect romantic retreat.

5. Swim with Whale Sharks

Mozambique is one of the world’s best places to see & even swim with the planet’s biggest fish. These gentle giants are active close to the surface, making for excellent sightings – ask us about the best places.

6. Enjoy the Local Culture

Take a break from the beach & discover Mozambique’s cosmopolitan history. It’s a great opportunity for photography & your guided tour includes local markets, Portuguese forts & churches.

7. Dive the Indian Ocean

Surrounded by premier diving sites, an underwater wonderland for divers, with a rich variety of tropical fish species complemented by Africa’s only population of the rare dugong.
