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.

Not in ones wildest dreams would one believe that such a wonderful place exists. Undeniably a lost paradise in the Indian Ocean. I feel we have been steeped in Ibo’s history and culture and guilty pleasure of staying in this beautiful colonial lodge filled with staff who have surpassed the word service, they have provided us a haven of personality, generosity and damn good food and wine! From collecting fine porcelain pieces on the beach, moonlit walks, sunset dhow trips and crab claws. This has been a truly memorable trip. “A life not reflected on is a life not lived, I feel I have lived on Ibo!!
