Mozambique


Africa’s best beach destination


From the pearl-like trail of the Quirimbas Archipelago in the north to the golden coast of Ponta do Ouro in the south, Mozambique boasts some of the most pristine and postcard-perfect beaches on the continent. Silky, powder-white sands? Check. Warm, turquoise waters? Check. Palm trees? Coral reefs? Check. Check. And thanks to its status as an up-and-coming holiday destination, Mozambique boasts several unspoilt, off-the-beaten-track hideouts that are perfect for those who’d prefer to be far from the madding crowd.

Dubbed ‘the pearl of the Indian Ocean’, the Bazaruto Archipelago is by far the most popular holiday hotspot in Mozambique. Those who’d prefer a more secluded getaway, however, should head north to the under-explored Quirimbas Archipelago, a 400-kilometre network of coral reef islands. Whatever your choice, you’ll be guaranteed days filled with scuba diving, snorkelling, swimming, dhow cruises, fishing, and more.

While Mozambique’s magical beaches are its biggest drawcard, there’s more to this country than sun and sand. Ilha de Moçambique—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—boasts a gorgeous sandstone fort and coral-rock ‘stone town’ that is a testament to the country’s colonial past. The Machangulo Private Nature Reserve is the perfect destination for those who want to combine a beach retreat with a safari in the African bush.
