Ibo Beach Excursion – Ilhas Quirimbas

One of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in the Quirimbas Archipelago is closely accessed from Ibo Island, and is easily one of Ibo’s best-kept secrets! There is a transfer to this Ibo Island Beach Excursion included each day in the Ibo Island Lodge rate. The time of the transfer is dependent on tides, weather and other activities planned each day. Dolphins and turtles are regularly spotted from the boat along the way.

It is preceded by a boat trip. Gliding slowly, you slip out of the ancient harbour, passing the old fort, and out into the crystal blue open water. The beach unfolds as the tide retreats, revealing an unending sugar sand spit to explore. For those wanting privacy, we give you an umbrella to set up your own spot on the Sandbank. For those wanting company, join us under the Bedouin tent with its mobile bar, something we set up for your stay.

We were searching for a peaceful place of beauty in a part of Africa that we have never explored before, somewhere that would give us the physical and environmental space to prepare for our marriage after three manic weeks running up to our wedding and what we have found at the lodge is just so much more…a spoil of luxury surrounded by an intriguing historical and cultural context, precious to all who stay, visit and work at the lodge. Thanks for the professionalism at the lodge, the tasty food, the beautiful sunsets, the memorable trip on the water. We wish you all the best. And hope to visit in years to come.
