Vamizi Island, Mozambique ticks all the boxes

17th January 2011 Print
Vamizi Island, Mozambique

Vamizi Island is unique - mile upon mile of powder white sand with a few hermit crab tracks and the very occasional human footprint. Located in the remote most northerly tip of Mozambique, this ravishing Indian Ocean coastline showcases some of the best beaches in the world.

Best accommodation

Villa number 1, is set on a private beach around the headland from the rest of the lodge - where villas are set 70 metres apart in absolute privacy- not an overwater villa in sight. The views over the sparkling Indian Ocean are completely uninterrupted and include a remote white sand beach running as far as the eye can see to both sides of the villa. This is quite simply the ultimate Indian Ocean view.

Best dive site

There is diving for every level here but to mention Vamizi Island without Neptune's Arm would be to withhold one of the greatest secrets of the diving world. Named as 'one of the top ten dive sites on the planet', this is an underwater island whose surface starts about 8 metres below the water offering canyons teaming with reef sharks, hundreds of snappers, potato bass and a myriad of tropical reef fish.

Best luxury adventure holiday

The more adventurous get stuck in with deep sea fishing, yoga, diving, whale watchin, snorkelling, sea kayaking and sailing, early evening dhow trips along the bay and mouth watering castaway picnics on deserted 'icing sugar' sandy beaches.

‘To Escape To’ can offer 6 nights at Vamizi and 1 night at the Oyster Bay on a fully inclusive basis, international flights on British Airways and all transfers from ?3,999 per person.
