Quirimbas island holidays

Offering stunning hotel accommodation

The Quirimba Archipelago islands are situated off the coast of northern Mozambique close to Pemba on the mainland. Arab trading posts and Portuguese trading routes dominated the seas many decades ago and today many of these 34 islands remain uninhabited.

The Ilhas Quirimbas are a Mozambique cultural and natural heritage, all partly linked to the coast by sand bars, coral reefs, mangroves and water rich in marine life. The Islands of Ibo, Quisiva and Matemo feature old Portuguese settlements with pre-colonial Swahili settlements. There is evidence that the culture today is a potpourri of influences from Africa, the Arab region, India, and Europe over more than a millennium.

Diving in the Quirimba’s Archipelago is a maze of phenomenal drop-offs and diverse coral species. This Mozambique conservation area contains outstanding global value due to its mangrove, sea grasses, sandy and rocky shores habitats – important feeding areas for turtle, crab plovers and migratory birds. Bottlenose and humpback dolphins and whales breed here too.

The Quirimba’s Archipelago is the perfect Mozambique Holiday Destination with is diverse range of beach resorts and hotels, biodiversity and exclusivity. Mozambique Honeymoons on these islands are the ultimate in romance and seclusion with the perfect beach and ocean setting! Flights to Mozambique landing in Pemba give access to the archipelago.

Tourists book Mozambique Holiday Packages to the Quirimba’s  to explore its timelessness – getting completely away from it all. Fishermen will love the thrill of luring game fish and other tropical species. Kite surfing is the latest Quirimba’s craze – explore the freedom of the Quirimba’s Marine National Park.

As always a wonderful experience on Ibo. Birds were great too, lots of good waders on the low tide flats. Caught and ringed crab plover, whimbrel, Gtr Sand plover, Culew Sandpiper, Teak Sandpiper & Common Sandpiper. Lodge staff are always SO helpful with everything and accommodating. Great food!

A marvelous project. What has been made here at Ibo Island lodge is exceptional. We just beginning to understand the projects and how audacious it is. We looking forward to sending friends here and hearing about the progress you make. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. We felt that we were really at home. Thank-You to you all!
