Mozambique is blessed with more than 3000km of golden sandy beaches, all left undisturbed over a twenty year civil war following the end of the Portuguese colony in 1976. Exotic names like Xai Xai, Inhambane, Vilanculos and Pemba roll off the tongue and conjure visions of long, languid days with the gentle and warm Indian Ocean lapping on the beach, a local Dos M beer in one hand and peri peri prawn in the other.
International visitors began to filter back into Mozambique in the early 1990s and this has enabled the revival of an organised high end tourism industry. Tourist numbers however are still low enough that having selected the right location you can enjoy pristine beaches and reefs without any disturbance or sign of other visitors.
With easy flight connections from South Africa, Mozambique makes for an excellent beach add-on to a wildlife safari or a relaxing sojourn in its own right. We focus on two exceptional areas: Vilanculos and the Bazaruto Archipelago in the south and Pemba and the Quirimba Islands in the north.
