Ibo Beach Excursion – Ilhas Quirimbas

Ibo’s best-kept secrets

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 harbor, 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.

You have created a wonderful haven on this island where time really does stand still. I could sit here for weeks watching the tides and the dhows go out and come back again. The friendliness and simplicity of Ibo has restored my faith in humanity after all the horrors of Iraq and Afghanistan. Thank you for that and for showing us round this island of stories. I will never forget my New Year spent on Ibo (or the delicious prawns).
