Romantic Beach Vacation, Mozambique

by : Claire Dinnie

Mozambique, one of the world’s leading romantic beach vacation destinations, has moved into first world acceptance and recognition offering seclusion, exclusivity, along with pristine white beaches and warm Indian Ocean that defies the colour spectrum. International investors have made significant investment over the last six years to such an extent that we are able to offer a varied selection of properties in various destinations ranging from the Bazaruto to the Quirimbas Archipelagos.

Touching down in Vilanculos, you cannot help but note the gently swaying palms and the uniqueness of the airport. With immigration formalities behind you and the smiling face of your host in front of you, its time to board the light aircraft to your romantic beach vacation destination. As your aircraft banks between mainland and island you are utterly captivated by the sea below. Arriving at Indigo Bay on Bazaruto Island you are whisked away by a golf cart to a warm reception to your beach facing suite.? No itinerary could prepare you - a fragrant frangipani, endless white beaches, sound of utter silence envelopes your very soul.

Over the next five days, you will experience, spectacular sunsets, horse riding along the beach, a private dinner for two and if you’re lucky a sighting of the elusive dugong. For scuba divers this is a destination of unique value because of the lack of human footprint over the last sixty years, the surrounding coral reefs are pristine and wall diving is amongst the best in the world. Time to move further north…

For those who believe they have found the ultimate deserted island, think again, Medjumbe for us, epitomises bare foot beach luxury and consummate hospitality. Your focus is on your romantic beach vacation, so what would happen if your romantic beach vacation became a reawakening of your soul. Impossible? Maybe improbable, but we have been here. We have sat watching the sunset over Africa, the conversation of a drift wood fire is the only sound we hear and behind us a traditional African braai (barbeque) cooks crayfish tails, giant prawns and tender calamari.? Attentive staff watch the level of our glasses as we watch the level of the African sun sink on the horizon.

Your accommodation is one of thirteen all beach facing suites complete with private plunge pools and full air-conditioning. Beautifully appointed and with direct beach access, its surprising how little time you will spend in your suite. So where will you spend your time on your romantic beach vacation? Walking together around the island, maybe having a special dinner for two, certainly experiencing life on, in and under the warm Indian Ocean. Medjumbe’s dive centre is fully equipped and attended by a registered dive master, who is conversant with the environment and knowledgeable on the best dive sites to be experienced.
