SUMMARY

 

The pearl of the Indian Ocean; Mozambique boasts 2 500 km of pristine beachfront on the mainland, with a string of beautiful and idyllic tropical islands, glittering like jewels in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Soft, white sandy beaches lined with coconut palms stretch as far as the eye can see.

Mozambique has remained an exclusive destination as many of its islands and mainland beaches are isolated and secluded, offering travelers the ultimate escape.

There are no golf courses or shopping malls here, but the unspoiled natural beauty, intriguing history, fascinating culture and rich marine life have pushed the country to the top of the list for adventurers, honeymooners and scuba divers.
