Mozambique's islands - Azura Benguerra

Escape to Azura Benguerra today!

Most travellers will discover the Mozambique islands as small jewels in the treasure chest of the Indian Ocean. The Bazaruto Archipelago is first up, off the coast at Vilankulo, where diving and snorkelling, boat trips and fishing take up all one’s time. Then you get the Quirimbas Archipelago further north where the islands are so remote, so untouched and so tiny that they present to all travellers the epitome of escape.

Take Benguerra Island in the Bazaruto Archipelago: it is part of the National Park therefore offers pristine coral reefs, rare marine animals and other protected species. This 55 kilometre long island broke away from the mainland thousands of years ago. Tourists can get close to the diverse forest, savannah, fresh water lakes and wetland eco systems which sustain a variety of wild animals and plants.

It is also the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago. Visitors to the island will learn more about fishing and diving than the average traveller – traditional fishermen still go out daily on their dhow sailing boats to catch their supper. Everyone will love the huge dunes, long beaches and outdoor activities.
