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.

From the moment we arrived we were blown away by this place – the beautiful decor, the impeccable friendly service – we really couldn’t have asked for more. A magical place – we’ll be sending people here whenever we get the chance (and hope we don’t bore everyone waxing lyrical beforehand! Whilst lazing by the pool, or sipping an expertly mixed cocktail or discussing the day’s activities with the ever efficient Dollar it has been difficult to put my finger on why this is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. To cut a long story short, it immediately entered my top 3 on arrival, only to move rapidly up the podium as we enjoyed the comfort and subtlety of the decor and the phenomenally warm and delightful hospitality of all the team. Special mention to all! A big thanks and the best of luck in developing the lodge further.
