From the crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean arises an island bursting with life and vegetation is a 75 hectare coral isle covered with lush vegetation in the form of palm trees, beefwood flowers and other species lining three magnificent fine-sand beaches where one can bask in the breezes of the African tropics.
The island is a natural haven where visitors may enjoy some of nature's wonders, dive into its waters to observe its seabeds, teeming with life; see turtles lay eggs on its beaches, watch whales on their ocean routes, or savor the beauty of an African sunset. Tambuzi is, above all, a private paradise reserved for just a few guests.
This island is one of the exotic Quirimbas Archipelago's best-kept secrets. Its 32 islands off the coast of Cabo Delgado province in northern Mozambique offer much more than postcard perfect scenery.
The Archipelago is located in the Quirimbas Nature Reserve, an attractive destination for both divers and nature lovers.
We find ourselves in the Quirimbas Archipelago, north of Mozambique, in the province of Cabo Delgado.
With the waters of the Indian Ocean lapping at their shores, this set of 32 islands stretch from the city of Pemba to the town of Palma, further to the North.
The islands off the coast of Mozambique are an amazing exception to what is commonly conceived of as a tourism destination, a place so special that many would prefer to keep its name and its stunning scenery a secret
Some of these islands, within Quirimbas National Park, are home to unique fauna: sea turtles, dolphins, sharks and whales, along with an infinite variety of tropical fish found along their seabeds and exceptional coral reets.
One can also explore the culture and history of the archipelago through its magnificent ancient fortresses, such as that found on the island of Ibo
The island forms part of this idyllic natural setting and is safe from any type of mass tourism and real estate development. It lies 11 miles from the mainland, across from the village of Mocímboa da Praia.
