Welcome to a warm and contemporary Vamizi Island. A destination still unknown to many yet one loved by the privileged few who have tasted her treasures. A beach destination offering warm hospitality and weather, blended with modern facilities in the recent refurbishment of 6 huge chic private chalets. It may be difficult to get to Vamizi Island, way off the beaten track in the distant Mozambique Quirimbas Archipelago, but once you arrive, it is all so worthwhile.
The fun begins when you fly in
Your holiday takes off with a private charter from Pemba port to the island and when you see this incredible crescent shaped isle from the air, you see a natural playground of white beaches, lush vegetation and clear turquoise waves. When you land, you will find an environmental ethos on Vamizi Island where marine conservation goes hand in hand with community upliftment and where your holiday makes all the difference to both.
Warm and contemporary, always
Vamizi Island is warm. All year round. You will live in your bathing costume and spend long hours walking the island, watching turtles, dolphins and whales as they breed and feed, snorkelling and scuba diving, enjoying chilled ocean cruises on traditional dhows and simply laying back on the beach to relax body and mind. This is the true and contemporary epitome of barefoot luxury where the peace is golden and the all-blue sky your constant companion.
Discreet villas tucked away on the beach
Accommodation on Vamizi, a Quirimbas award-winning beach holiday destination, is modern and spacious, made for families or groups of friends seeking privacy and comfort in beautiful surrounds. Scattered discreetly along the shores of the island, these villas are remarkably tasteful, decorated to suit the natural environment, their unobtrusive presence blending into the dune forests. Find monkeys playing nearby, huge Coconut crabs running up tall palm trees and other wildlife visiting your deck.
Private staff to pamper you all day
Choose a five or six-bedroomed house with its own chef, butler and driver at your service to add value to your vacation on Vamizi. With names from the Portuguese heritage of the region, the villas exude style and unique taste, making your holiday so much more enjoyable. Stroll from your huge private deck onto the white sandy beach and take a walk. Look for turtles laying their eggs at night and take part in the conservation initiatives watched over by researchers on the island.
