After basing myself in Cape Town this year, I set my sights on exploring more of Africa. Not only does Mozambique share a border with South Africa, but it is known for it’s stunning beaches and incredible scuba diving. Right up my alley!
After doing some research, I opted to visit Bazaruto Island, an island in a small group of islands off the coast of southern Mozambique called the Bazaruto Archipelago.
These islands sit within the Bazaruto National Park and have thriving, protected reefs and marine life.
The largest island, although not very wide, Bazaruto, is known for its white-sand beaches and picturesque sand dunes. After a short island hopper flight, I checked into the Anantara Bazaruto to experience the island and explore the underwater mecca. It is a beautiful property, with luxury accommodations and top-notch dining, and blew my expectations out of the water.
With the gorgeous, warm water of the Indian Ocean, you’ll find rare dugongs, turtles, whales, dolphins, and endless rainbows of fish around the archipelago. It’s the perfect spot for beginners and advanced divers alike!
On top of diving, you can enjoy other water sports, and you can even captain a traditional dhow boat. I highly recommend taking a day trip to Paradise Island and taking a tour of the local village.
Don’t miss your chance to visit this slice of African paradise!
