Mozambique’s Top 5 Islands and their Beaches – A Look Around Paradise

If you are looking to go on a blissful beach-side vacation without it costing you a couple of your limbs to be able to afford it, Mozambique should be a name that pops in anybody's mind. There are one too many 'beaches' why you need to visit this beautiful destination and here are some!


Benguerra Island

The beautiful Benguerra Island tops our list- and for good reason too! It is the second-largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago and is famous for its untouched beaches and its many luxury Mozambique holiday resorts – not to mention its phenomenal dive sites and numerous activities to engage in for people from all walks of life. It is completely isolated from the rest of the country and you can hardly tell it's even been discovered- its landscape remains unscathed and pristine and comforting to anyone who would spare to come down!


Vilanculos Island

The energy of the Vilanculos island is one that is completely a flip from that of Benguerra Island. While the latter is ideal for some laidback downtime for anyone in need, the former has playful adventure written all over it. The Vilanculos island comes highly recommended for numerous different water sports and some plentiful fun in the sun all year round. If you are ever down here, do not forget to opt for an unforgettable experience of horse-riding along the beach.


Medjumbe Island

The stunning Medjumbe island belongs to the Quirimbas Islands and is located off the northern coast of Mozambique bordering the Quirimbas National Park. It is a privately owned island operating as an exclusive resort, which makes it all the more enticing. It is surrounded by some spectacular coral reefs and makes for the perfect diving site and shall give you a whole new perspective about the underwater beauty of Mozambique!


Quilalea Island

This does land fourth place on our roundup- but by no means does it indicate any less enticing than any of our other options! The Quilalea island is truly a hidden germ- and boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Mozambique. We guarantee you will have the best time exploring its many mini beaches scattered throughout the island, all swarming with colourful shawls of fish, sea turtles and incredible sea life! Recharge, relax and rejuvenate at the cost of some truly breath-taking views for as far as your eyes can see!


Bazaruto Island

Last but not least, the Bazaruto island is the largest in the whole of the Bazaruto archipelago! All islands that make up the archipelago are known for their unspoilt beauty and diverse ecology that you can savour to your heart's content! The Bazaruto island itself for one is a whole adventure in itself considering its outstanding beaches and shady palm groves overlooking some fascinating sundowners! You can choose to let yourself be pampered like a toddler at the comfort of a luxury resort – the Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort, for instance, is a haven for anyone looking to get spoilt on their getaway.
