Private Island Resorts: Scuba Diving in Mozambique at Vamizi Island Lodge

Vamizi Island Lodge, Mozambique

Beat the back-to-work blues by planning your next vacation in paradise. Looking to travel somewhere tropical but off-the-beaten path? Consider Mozambique, where an exclusive luxury lodge in the Quirimbas Archipelago dazzles visitors with palatial villas in pristine surroundings (white crescent beaches abutted by rainforest). The award-winning Vamizi Island Lodge is a favorite of honeymooners for its sea-to-table cuisine and recreational activities-- including some of the best scuba diving on the planet exploring the unbleached coral reefs of the Indian Ocean.

The island itself is seven miles long and one mile wide, and is home to a wildlife refuge that nurtures some 112 different bird species, monkeys, giant coconut crabs, and four turtle species. Needless to say, conservation is a key part of Vamizi Island Lodge’s philosophy. The beachfront villas were built by local craftsmen with sustainable materials, and showcase lots of East African touches (like handcrafted wood carvings).

But this private island resort isn’t limited to honeymooning romantics. Looking to detox after a decadent holiday season? The resort offers yoga-filled relaxation programs where “No News, No Shoes” is the guiding principle. Located off Mozambique’s north coast, the island resort is accessed by private Vamizi flights from Pemba (Mozambique) or Dar es Salaam (Tanzania). For more information, see the resort’s website: www.vamizi.com.
