Nicknamed the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’, the Bazaruto Archipelago is a much-coveted travel destination in Mozambique. It is known for its white sandy beaches, glistening turquoise waters and some of the best scuba-diving in the world.
As one of the largest marine reserves in the Indian Ocean, the archipelago supports over 2000 species of fish, as well as dolphins, whales, turtles and sharks. It also holds the largest population of Dugong in Mozambique.
The archipelago consists of 5 islands: Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, Banque and Santa Carolina. It is a birders paradise, with a recorded list of over 180 species. You’ll also find 45 reptile and amphibian species; suni antelope, red duiker, endemic butterflies and the characteristic Samango monkey on the islands within the national park.
Being on the mainland, our guests have the opportunity to experience everything this magical place has to offer. From spending a day out on the magical waters surrounded by the flamboyance of flamingos to exploring the colourful markets and local shops of Vilanculos town.
We have an assortment of kayaks, stand up paddle boards, snorkelling gear, fishing gear and even a gym in a bag for a quick workout session on the sunset patio as the sun rises above the silhouette of Magaruque Island. These are all complimentary, onsite activities.
