“We are all children of Africa, and none of us is better or more important than the other. This is what Africa could say to the world: it could remind it what it is to be human.” – Alexander McCall Smith
Soft, white sand, sapphire blue water and secluded, unspoiled beaches make Mozambique the perfect beach getaway. As much food for the soul as it is a feast for the eyes, ‘the pearl of the Indian Ocean’ offers visitors 2,500km of picture-perfect beachfront on the mainland and an array of exquisite, tranquil tropical islands just off its shores.
From reef fish and game fish to sharks and manta rays, the waters that frame this little piece of heaven are teeming with marine life. It’s a scuba divers’ paradise, offering those that venture into the ocean a veritable kaleidoscope of Mother Nature’s finest, including the ever-present ‘maybe’ of a leatherback turtle or humpback whale sighting.
As attractive to honeymooners as it is to families and water sport fanatics, Mozambique offers travellers an opportunity to truly unwind, unplug and reconnect with the things that matter – with each other, with nature, with themselves. Whatever your idea of relaxation is, from a horse ride to a boat excursion, from snorkelling to sunbathing, from deep-sea fishing to an authentic Mozambican meal, this paradise won’t disappoint.
