      Vamizi Island

      The Island in Yours to Explore and Play

      Slender and crescent-shaped, Vamizi Island nestles within the Quirimbas Archipelago, a string of islands along the length of Mozambique’s remote northern coast, sometimes known as the New Maldives. The island is a sanctuary, small and intimate, offering the definitive barefoot luxury of your own private island. Exclusivity is one of Vamizi Island's greatest assets and, as the only lodge on the island, it has the space to spread wide, so each villa amply commands its own part of the beach. Thirteen villas, with one or two bedrooms, are right on the shoreline, all with to-die-for views of the ocean. Both airy and generous - with more than 1830 sq. ft. of timbered floor to pad about on, they have plenty of space for spreading beds, sofas, an outside marble shower and vanity area, and a sun deck. The Vamizi seas from above the water are so beautiful that they literally take your breath away. To have this awesome seascape as a backdrop while playing is a luxury: fishing some of the world’s most exciting waters, ambling along the shore, cutting through the waves in a wooden dhow (dolphins alongside), watching a humpback whale breach. Some of the dives here are said to be the best in the world and the deep-sea fishing may be the best on the whole East African coast. Fortunately, the island has PADI dive instructors, professional fisherfolk, and all the toys and kit needed to make the most of this extraordinary marine world. For the less committed thrill seekers, there are snorkeling trips, castaway picnics, whale watching expeditions and lots of messing about in boats, from kayaks to traditional dhows. Land lovers may, of course, prefer to wander the miles of sugar-sand untouched beaches, or delve into the bush for monkey or bird watching. The miles of unpadded white sand and wild bushy interior are also a sanctuary for samango monkeys, coconut crabs and the 112 species of tropical birds that live here, as well as being a haven for the more land-based creatures among us. Like the 100 turtles that nest on Vamizi's empty shores and are irresistibly drawn to its peace, solitude and perfect harmony year after year, intrepid travelers and rarified pleasure seekers find it’s just the place to rest their weary fins.
