Vamizi island may be hard to get to, but it is worth the journey. So say guests who have been there. It is a stunning island, an away-from-it-all kind of a place. “Miles and miles of untouched soft silver sandy beach with not a soul to be seen… We saw dolphin whilst snorkelling, a turtle nesting on the beach, a few very timid monkeys and bright yellow tiny birds whose nests live in the rattan joists of the bar area,” quips a previous guest.
Extremely courteous staff try their best to meet all requests and keep luxury villas spotless. Stay a week on this paradise island and try to describe its jaw-dropping beauty. Picture billowing white Dhow sails moving like ghost ships on the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Fall immediately in love with the island – its whole Robinson Crusoe atmosphere with every mod con thrown in for maximum guest comfort.
“In the early mornings, cicadas fill the air with their song. We spotted Samango monkeys next to our room and turtle tracks racing across the pure white sand leading to a sparkling sea with amazing magnificent reefs,” writes another happy guest.
The lodges are pure luxury – villas are all tucked discreetly into the trees and back from the beach so as not to disturb nesting turtles. Inside, there is plenty of space and light and king-size beds are draped with muslin mosquito nets – though the island is malaria-free.
In a nutshell, Vamizi Island is simply an amazing place which is hard to describe in words. It floats in the Quirimbas Archipelago in the far north of Mozambique and is designed to take your breath away. See it to believe it – come to the 12 km long crescent-shaped desert island as soon as you can.
Imagine mixing barefoot bliss with exclusive luxury – romance and adventure, pleasure and simplicity. Vamizi Island is certainly a luxurious indulgence found nowhere else in Africa. Place of deserted island chic, grandiose design and uncomplicated pleasures.
