Did you fantasise about Robinson Crusoe or living as a castaway on your own private island as a child? It turns out, dreams do come true. Azura Quilalea Private Island is located on a private island paradise in the Quirimbas Archipelago of northern Mozambique. Encircled by a marine sanctuary, this Eco-Boutique retreat offers an exclusivity rarely found and allows guests to effortlessly escape the stresses of everyday life.
An abundance of sea life, scuba diving and snorkelling are all available straight off the main beach with exciting dive sites further afield. Humback whales and nesting turtles are seasonal visitors to the island, while friendly dolphin company is a year-round delight. Highlights include kayaking through the mangroves, sailing on traditional Mozambican dhows and deep sea fishing. Land based activities include cultural trips to Ibo Island, island walks to the giant baobabs, picnics, romantic beach dinners and treatments at the African Spa.
The nine Seafront Villas are built from natural coral stone and makuti thatch and the décor is simple yet stylish. All Villas have air-conditioning, indoor/outdoor showers, daybeds and sun loungers for relaxing, and private decks stretching out to the beach.
