Vamizi, one of the most northerly of the Quirimba islands, is simply in a class of its own.

Thirteen luxurious 175m² timber villas are spread along a snow white sandy beach, all built in the eclectic style so typical of this area - with Arabian influences reflected in the African architecture.  The villas are nestled in between the swaying acacia and casuarina trees and are set back from the private beach-front so as not to disturb the turtles who nest here and who make this island so special.

Although not air-conditioned, the paddle fans together with the intricate and ornate wooden lattice work keeps the breeze flowing through the villas to keep you cool.  The king size beds are draped in muslin with Egyptian cotton sheets and the decadent bathrooms are built using marble.  In keeping with the ecological credentials and aspirations of the project the majority of the construction material was sourced from local sustainable materials.  

Step out of the villa on to the 8km endless stretch of velvet sand beach for a stroll, and swim in the warm azure waters at both high and low tides.  The snorkelling and diving around Vamizi are spectacular thanks to the conservation work in progress to protect the marine life.  In addition to the prolific sea-life, the island is home to an endemic species of dwarf python, the Samango monkey and the giant yet intriguing coconut crabs.  The turtle season is from July to April, and you can expect to see whales between July and October.  For those who are not suba divers, there is deep sea fishing, sea kayaking, exploring the secret coves, dhow trips, and coastal forest walks.

Whether you are seeking an exclusive island experience or the perfect honeymoon, Vamizi Island is the ideal choice!

Vamizi Island is one of the most northernly islands in the Quirimba Archipelago and can only be reached by light aircraft.  Vamizi offers air transfers several times a week in a private plane from Pemba International Airport as well as Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania to the island. 

From the airstrip guests are transferred in an open 4x4 landrover over bumpy coral rock that takes 45 minutes to the lodge.

The flight from Pemba takes 1 hour and from Dar-es-Salaam two and a quarter hours with a stop at Moçimboa de Praia to pass through customs and immigration into Mozambique;  from here it is only another 10 minutes to Vamizi.
