Wherever you choose to stay in Mozambique, an island holiday in the Quirimbas Archipelago is one of your best bets – think azure seas, dazzling beaches, swaying palm trees and choice seafood every day. Ibo Island is one of the best island destinations for you if you love history, culture and romance, all in one.
So pack your bags and find island accommodation to allow your own complete escape from real life into beach-ocean heaven. Once known as the ‘Islands of Lazarus’, this northern region of Mozambique boasts untouched coral reefs, tidal sand bars, mangroves and endangered species, including some species of turtles and dolphins.
Ibo Island is a haven of old Portuguese settlements going to ruin but some have been restored, such as Ibo Island Lodge, into fantastic tourist mansions. This string of islands has changed over time as Arab and Portuguese trading posts attracted people and their traditional ways of living. Today, the spectacular Quirimbas Archipelago offers remote, luxurious, romantic accommodation in lodges designed to perfection, with the natural environment in mind.
