After a thrilling week on safari, rising with the sun, experiencing Africa’s wildlife all day and enjoying late night campfires, a few lazy days on the beautiful Indian Ocean coast is a perfect idea. For many of our travelers, a safari in Southern Africa is followed by a few lovely days on the beach in Mozambique. Home to hundreds of miles of warm, white sand coastline, today there are more options than ever before when selecting where to stay.
Here are our favorite properties in Mozambique for every type of traveler!
Mozambique For Families
The White Pearl Resort, located on the southern coast of Mozambique, is the best for families in Mozambique. With a stunning, pristine beach nearly a mile long and surrounded by untouched tracts of bush, this is the perfect place for families to unwind after safari.
Warmed by the Indian Ocean current moving south from the equator, the ocean water is perfectly clear and the climate is warm year round. Behind the resort is the Maputo Elephant Reserve to the west, offering even more seclusion.
Families love the Kids Skipper Club, staffed by the resort’s experienced activity team and filled with fun, educational activities that encourage children to explore the mysteries and wonders of the area’s land and sea.
We love Azura Quilalea for honeymooners or any romantic getaway. Azura Quilalea is a hidden gem, with a luxurious yet understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style.
Quilalea is literally a private, wholly uninhabited island paradise surrounded by the pristine waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary. Here you can Snorkel the island’s shores, dive from the main beach, kayak the mangroves or relax in a hammock beneath the giant baobabs on the island. Quilalea is the ultimate private luxury hideaway in a stunning undiscovered destination, an absolute untouched paradise!
For Multi-Generational Groups
Santorini Mozambique is a winner when it comes to multi generational groups hitting the beach. Easily accessible in Vilanculos, the white walled Santorini Mozambique commands panoramic views across Vilanculos Bay and the islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago from its private, elevated position. Surrounded by dense coastal vegetation and fronted by its own stretch of virtually untouched beach, Santorini Mozambique is like a small Greek Village in the heart of an African landscape. Food, decor and staff here are all first class!
