The Quirimbas Archipelago consists of a magnificent chain of over 25 coral islands in Northern Mozambique. The area is ideal for fishing, diving, dhow trips, and snorkeling and a good spot for an island getaway without the masses. The area is renowned for its high quality dive sites with exceptional drop-offs and some of the world’s healthiest coral.

Dubbed the ‘African Caribbean’, the region is an idyllic eco-tourism destination with accommodation offered in both luxurious lodges and more rustic beachfront huts. Quirimbas is a romantic option for honeymooners that is easily accessible from Pemba.

Our favorite properties in the Quirimbas are Vamizi and Azura Quilalea, both of which epitomize barefoot luxury. We also like Ibo Island Lodge as a lower priced option on Ibo Island, a World Heritage Site with an eclectic wealth of exquisite ancient architecture.

In Mozambique you are most likely to experience some rain between October and November and heavier rain between January and March/April but some rain can occur at any time of year.
