The Quirimbas Archipelago consists of a string of 32 islands that stretch for one hundred kilometres along the northern Mozambican coastline. The Quirimbas National Park is made up of eleven of the southern-most islands, as well as a large portion of mainland forest. The declaration of this area as a conservation site has allowed it to remain largely untouched by development, which is what makes this area such a paradise.
The preservation of parts of this Archipelago means that the extensive reefs are bursting with marine life; the clear blue of the ocean gives snorkelers a chance to see hundreds of reef fish that have been identified in the area. Divers will also be able to see numerous species of shark, dolphin, big game fish and even turtles that nest on the beaches.
In spite of there being little development on the islands so far, there are enough accommodation choices to suit any holiday. Regardless of whether it’s a family getaway, an intimate honeymoon or a trip with friends, the Quirimbas islands have a range of options available, from cost-effective to stylish or even luxury.
Quirimbas is most easily reached from Dar es Salaam and it a superb way to relax following a safari on the Southern Circuit in Tanzania.
