For those seeking total isolation and pristine natural beauty, Medjumbe Private Island in the Quirimba islands is the ideal honeymoon or romantic getaway island. The thirteen water-front chalets combine style, comfort and privacy, and the small size of the resort ensures individual attention and a peaceful sojourn. You can stroll around the island in under an hour, and admire the majestic lighthouse perched on the headland.
Each chalet has its own Jacuzzi set in an open-air deck - a shell's throw away from the virgin white sand on the beach. The Moorish feel infuses the beautifully appointed thatched chalets with timber decks, each featuring an en-suite bathroom with indoor shower and separate bath as well as a private outdoor shower. Chalets have air-conditioning, a cosy hammock, ceiling fans, mosquito screens and satellite TV.
The diving around Medjumbe Island is exceptional, with virgin reefs descending to unchartered depths. There are also excellent opportunities for fly-fishing off Medjumbe's long sand spit, and if you are a keen deep-sea fisherman, charter one of the boats with an experienced crew for a full or half day adventure at sea. If you prefer to stay above the water, take a pedal boat out and explore the surrounding waters and enjoy the various colourful fish playfully chasing the boat.
Other activities include kayaking, windsurfing and sailing, bird watching, water-skiing, wakeboarding and knee-boarding. At certain times of the year, the lucky visitor could witness turtles hatching from their (protected) nests; indeed a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Otherwise, relax in the hammock outside your chalet and while away the sun-filled hours with nothing to hear but the waves lapping on the shore.
After a full day enjoying the activities on offer, sit back with a sundowner cocktail whilst watching the dhows saunter moodily past at the convivial 'Bahari' bar next to the pool prior to sampling some of the fresh local seafood for dinner.
