A lesser known destination on the tourist map because of its remote location – Northern Mozambique offers island hideaways, stunning beaches, Swahili culture, awesome seafood and some of the world’s best dive spots! It is fast becoming the leading destination for those seeking beautiful beaches and seaside rejuvenation.
The Quirimbas Archipelago is the main attraction of Northern Mozambique. The Archipelago is made up of about 27 islands which stretch from Pemba to the Tanzanian border. Many of these islands are uninhabited but there are a few select ones that have luxury retreats for you to enjoy. Anantara Medjumbe for a private island experience; Ibo Island for culture, architecture and history; Vamizi for barefoot luxury; and Azura Quilalea for an exclusive Honeymoon experience. Pemba is the gateway to these islands. The Quirimbas is a destination where you can kick back, relax and do nothing at all, or you can enjoy plenty of water activities and magnificent scuba diving.
The marine life is abundant and undisturbed. With the right timing you get to see whale sharks, dolphins or whales. If you are on honeymoon and looking for romance and privacy, there are miles of white sandy beaches and warm Indian Ocean, sunset dhow cruises and a chance for you to find your piece of paradise.
The best time to visit this area is generally the cooler winter months. We have more information in our travel tips and information section.
