All year around
The 32 tiny Quirimbas islands are some of the world's best diving and fishing destinations but are barely on most tourists' radar. This string of islands offers stunning white beaches, a pristine marine environment and a sense of being utterly away from the maelstrom of the world. The Quirimbas islands archipelago stretches for over 100 km in the far north of Mozambique. However, the southern islands, and some mainland forest, are included in the Quirimbas National Park which preserves and protects its stunning beauty.
In particular, the Quirimbas is known for its world class scuba diving. The complete lack of development in the Quirimbas Archipelago has meant that the coral here has not suffered the degradation seen elsewhere. The colours of the reefs are vibrant and pristine, and the warm Indian Ocean waters teem with fish. So, it will also suit couples seeking a truly remote tropical island destination for their honeymoon or anniversary.
