Bazaruto Archipelago

The Bazaruto Archipelago is on the spectacular southern coast and also is a national park and number one destination in Moçambique. This archipelago consists of five main islands: Bazaruto, Benguera, Magaruque, Santa Carolina and tiny Bangué. It's about as close to a tropical paradise as you'll find, and is one of Mozambique's highlights. Among its attractions: it boasts clear, turquoise waters; tranquil, white-sand beaches; a plethora of colourful birds; and rewarding diving and snorkelling.

The Archipelago was isolated from the ravages of war on the mainland, nature bursts forth here in full force and can be felt and experienced in a very unique way. Most impressive, perhaps, are the elusive dugong who spend their days foraging among sea-grass meadows around the archipelago. As a backdrop to all this are extensive and excellently preserved coral formations. This is one must-see destination.
