Vamizi Island


Found in the Quirimbas Archipelago in northern Mozambique Vamizi is an idyllic coral island surrounded by azure waters where families, couples and groups can enjoy the exclusivity of one of the island's private beach villas.  

The marine conservation area around the island is home to pristine coral and hundreds of species of fish with numerous dive sites to explore or one can take to the water on kayaks or a traditional dhow cruise.  On land you can get a flavour of local life by visiting one of the island's villages, discover the flora and fauna on a guided nature walk or simply take a leisurely stroll along miles of deserted beach.    


Our Thoughts

Vamizi's private villas are perfect for families and groups to get away from it all.

In room spa treatments and yoga are available and each villa has different amenities such as beach salas and private pools.

The island has six villas all of which have a host, chef, butler and housekeeper to make you feel at home.  Whether nestled in the forest or right on the beach the villas provide the ultimate beach getaway.
