Imagine a place that is drenched in sunshine for most of the year and where clear blue seas lap forever quietly on white sands? This is Vamizi Island lying in the Quirimbas Archipelago, one of Mozambique’s finest beach properties.
The island is completely private and the place to be for infinite solitude and connection to nature. The white sandy beaches welcome turtles during their breeding season while Samango monkeys and coconut crabs play in the indigenous vegetation. No wonder Vamizi is the finest beach property in the Quirimbas!
Dive some of the world’s top dive sites including Neptune’s Arm where professional PADI dive masters will show you fantastic fish and corals. Spend days walking the sandy beaches, snorkelling the azure bays and watching the 112 bird species flit colourfully in the trees.
Vamizi Lodge welcomes honeymoon couples, families and keen fishermen to its fantastic villas where the sun always rises. There are 13 elegant yet rustic villas spread out along the shoreline and the sea is the swimming pool. The room decor is some of the finest in Mozambique – think generous beds, expansive couches, showers carved from the local marble and extraordinary vanity areas.
To top it all, tasteful outside showers and sun decks complete the picture – not a glass window in sight as one of the villas’ best kept secrets are the elaborately carved wooden screens for privacy and breezy air flow.
Rooms have king-size four poster beds with billowing muslin mosquito nets and Egyptian cotton sheets. Swahili day beds are perfect for an afternoon siesta on the private veranda.
Now you can see why Vamizi IS Mozambique’s finest beach property. Fresh seafood feasts every day, imaginative meals and delicious picnic baskets to satisfy even the fussiest eater. Fall asleep to the sound of the surf and wake to the dawn chorus of birds and monkeys. Paradise!
Vamizi Island is big on conservation and the preservation of the marine and island wildlife – learn more about the WWF project and get closer to nature while on your Mozambique island holiday. The community is involved in monitoring the turtles and managing the marine sanctuary.
