Quirimbas Archipelago

Visit the Quirimbas Archipelago

Introduction

The Quirimbas Archipelago is a group of around 30 islands off the northern coast of Mozambique, stretching from the town of Pemba towards the Tanzania border. The remote Quirimbas islands are regarded as one of Africa's finest beach holiday destinations, with unspoilt and secluded beaches, mangroves and spectacular coral formations, and an abundance of birdlife.

Quirimbas is also rich in marine life. Whales frequent the deeper channels out to sea and turtles nest on the sandbanks. These underwater attractions make the archipelago islands an ideal destination for diving and snorkelling holidays - and trips can be made from luxury island lodges and hotels close to the reefs. The Quirimbas Archipelago is also notable for its historical and cultural connections. A visit to Ibo Island, a former Portuguese settlement and slave port, makes a fascinating extension to a personalised Mozambique itinerary.
