Quirimbas National Park
The Quirimbas National Park covers both area on mainland Mozambique and 32 islands of the coast north of Pemba Island. The region is home to incredible marine life, ranging from turtles and dugongs to whales and dolphins, and a thriving coral reef beckons to diving enthusiasts.
The Quirimbas have fascinating cultural and historical appeal. The islands represent a melting-pot of Portuguese, Arabian and African influences, while historic landmarks such as the old fort on Ibo Island tell tales of slavery, pirates and the ominous ivory trade. These idyllic tropical islands are remote and offer island holidays away from the crowds.
The flights there are expensive which makes this an exclusive destination. The island’s sandy white beaches, untouched coral reefs, and interesting mix of history make this a sought after destination with several famous islands and resorts such as Ibo Island, Vamizi Island, Matemo Island and Quilalea Island.
