The sub-tropical climate and warm waters of the Mozambique beaches are the perfect tonic to thaw out on after the cold European temperatures.
The best Mozambique beaches we think are on the Bazaruto Archipelago and the far northern Quirimbas Archipelago. You will rarely see another soul and the snorkelling and diving is a visual feast of exotic tropical marine life. Spend lazy days playing beach volley ball, strolling along sandy shores or sailing around the island with your local skipper team.
The locals are friendly and there is a general relaxed feel – its African time. You can expect to indulge in lots of fresh yummy seafood – catch of the day is just what it is and caught by the local fisherman.
Getting yourself to one of these idyllic Mozambique beaches is pretty easy, with daily direct flights from Johannesburg to Vilanculos, Inhambane, Pemba and Maputo. Then its either a matter of taking a small charter flight to the islands or a boat. Getting around within Mozambique is a little more of a challenge as not all the road networks are well developed, although there have been improvements over the past couple of years.
Those wanting to do a more classical combination with a few nights on safari first followed by lazing on one of the Mozambique beaches sipping cocktails, then the good news is that there are flights directly from Kruger to Vilanculos – they are not daily, but are frequent enough to fit into most peoples travel plans.
