Dive Blue Archipelagos; Bazaruto, Mozambique

Imagine swimming languidly through warm, crystal clear blue waters, admiring iridescent schools of fish and ocean wildlife and then walking across pristine sands sipping a crisp cocktail as the sun goes down.

The Archipelagos of Mozambique is the ideal place to do this and has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful ad idyllic places on earth – they are well worth a visit.

Looking Back

For the fifty years prior to the year 2000, Mozambique was plagued by poor governance and civil war and tourism was non-existent despite the country’s exceptional natural beauty.

In 1992, the country began to return to political stability and diving enthusiasts and nature lovers started to return to the rich waters and tropical islands of the Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagos.

These islands have long been home to primitive fishing settlements and grew from the Arab trading and Portuguese slave posts. Many of the islands are still uninhabited.

Ibo Island is one of the most popular destinations in the Quirimbas Archipelago and it has a rich and fascinating history with beautiful buildings.
