Where to stay in Mozambique


Mozambique’s coastline has to be one of the most gorgeous and less travelled destinations in Africa. Stretched along the Indian Ocean you have the Quirimbas Archipelago, a 250km stretch of coral islands and the Bazaruto Archipelago farther south, with reefs that offer some of the best diving in the world. There are also a number of beautiful spots along the mainland to enjoy, beaches that stretch for miles and mangroves to explore. A heavenly destination for the whole family to enjoy.
