Pristine Beaches & Crystal Clear Water
The Quirimba Archipelago islands are arranged off the coastline of northern Mozambique near Pemba on the mainland. Arab traders and the famous Portuguese sailors and navigators commanded the Indian oceans over numerous decades prior and today a significant number of these 34 islands are still uninhabited.
Mozambique’s history has guaranteed that societies have met and blended. The general population of are a mix of European, Indian, Arabic and Chinese. Notwithstanding this, old Mozambique tribal traditions and tribal religions are still regarded and nurtured on the islands.
The Ilhas Quirimbas are a Mozambique social heritage and ancient legacy, all somewhat connected to the coast by sand bars, coral reefs, mangroves and water rich in marine life.
The Islands of Ibo, Quisiva and Matemo highlight old Portuguese settlements with pre-colonial Swahili settlements. There is proof that the way of life today is a blend of influences from Africa, the Arab region, India, and Europe over more than a thousand years.
There is a great range of activities to make your Mozambique holiday something truly special.
