Mozambique is home to the Bazaruto Archipelago – a group of remote, untouched islands. This area is off the beaten track and if you are looking for stunning beaches, clear azure sea and relaxation then Mozambique could be the place for you.

Accommodation varies from Eco lodges, such as Guludo Lodge – this is tents on the beach, very rustic and fantastic for scuba diving! – to 5 star deluxe resorts, such as Indigo Bay – wonderful for honeymooners. Ibo Island is steeped in history, guests stay in an old Portuguese house which has been renovated to a very high standard.

Many people think that Mozambique is inaccessible & hard to reach, but LAM, Turbo Max and SA Airlink all fly directly to various cities in Mozambique.

Elegant small beach hotels are a rarity in Mozambique, but the Matemo Island Resort which is located off the Northern Mozambique coast is set to become one of the most popular African island holidays.

Getting there isn’t difficult, you fly into Pemba, and then take a light aircraft to Matemo.

You really do feel you are off the beaten track here, especially as this is a new resort, with absolutely pristine beaches, and a place to really do nothing but recover from a safari.

In terms of what it’s like, there are 24 rooms, on an island that is 8km long, and 3km wide, and whilst it doesn’t have the sophistication of the Maldives[yet], it does have the huge advantage that you can stay for a week, and not walk round it easily.

Matemo is one of the great romantic affordable honeymoon ideas, it’s unspoilt, unexplored, a paradise with miles of beautiful white sand beaches.

Vamizi Island Lodge is an amazing 24-bed lodge built on the northern side of the Vamizi Island and looks towards Rongui from the end of a long powder-sand beach. Vamizi Island Lodge consists of ten separate beach houses, each with its own large living room, spectacular bathroom and breezy veranda; two houses can accommodate four guests, the rest of the houses lodge two guests. The houses are all private from each other and look out to the Indian Ocean from the shade of the forest that forms the centre of the island. Samango monkeys play in the trees and prowl the glades, hunting the land crabs that live there.
