Bleached sands, azure waters and year-round sunshine – what better tropical retreat could there be than the Bazaruto Archipelago, one of Mozambique’s most pristine conservation gems, home to the elusive dugong, and an incredible array of fish and coral species.

From deserted beaches to an underwater tropical wonderland, the intoxicating flavours of Luso-African cuisine and traditions of the local dhow fishermen, take your pick of five tropical islands, each with their own charm and resort style: Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, Bangue and Santa Carolina – the latter dubbed Paradise Island and for good reason, with its unrivalled nature and nearby tropical reef.

You can do as much or as little as you like on the tropical paradise islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago. For divers, Bazaruto represents a wonderland of no fewer than 19 magnificent dive sites, home to such species as whale sharks, green turtles and manta rays. Game fishermen will delight in the opportunity to catch the ‘Big One’, with Marlin, Tuna and King Mackerel all swimming in these waters. Sports enthusiasts can go kite-surfing or horseback riding on the beach, or hop on a dhow cruise and sail between the islands – the choice is yours.
