Mozambique is Africa’s undiscovered jewel – and its rising star – proudly boasting 1,500 miles of exquisite undeveloped coastline and some of the best diving in the world. In the 1990’s, after 25 years of civil war, Mozambique did not feature in many people’s travel plans. Since then, the country has undergone a cathartic renaissance and tourism has played a defining role in its post-war culture. Nowhere is this truer than along the coast, where cutting-edge island chic hideaways and retreats are becoming a magnet for those in search of barefoot luxury escapism on their Mozambique luxury holiday.
WHY TURQUOISE HOLIDAYS LIKES MOZAMBIQUE
"The pictures you see of Mozambique really are true to life, I couldn’t believe it – with its bright white sand banks and beaches amongst the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean surrounded by an unpopulated mass of green vegetation on the surrounding islands. I was so touched by how happy and devoted the locals were towards their visitors, making us feel so welcome in this beautiful archipelago!” - Willa, Assistant Sales Manager
WHY GO ON A MOZAMBIQUE HOLIDAY
Mozambique’s Beaches - The pristine coral reefs which line the Bazaruto Archipelago in the south (accessible via a helicopter flight from Vilanculos) and the Quirimbas Archipelago in the far north (reached by helicopter from Pemba), boast some of the world’s best beaches.
Mozambique Island & Beach Escapes - Stylish island retreats in the north and on the southern shores have lifted Mozambique to altogether new heights in the castaway-cool stakes and all along the coast, modern beauty and old world delights conspire together to reaffirm Mozambique’s fashionable new look. Spirited new hotels deliver a cultural fix alongside their castaway chic – few other Indian Ocean beach idylls can lay claim to such oh-so-beguiling rustic yet luxurious castaway style.

Plus you can have ‘fresh-from-the-ocean cuisine you could possibly ever wish for.
