The Quirimbas Archipelago consists of 32 islands, stretching north to south along the coastline of Northern Mozambique in east Africa. The 5 main islands are Ibo, Quilalea, Matemo Medjumbe and Vamizi Island, with the other 27 islands remaing largely unexplored and uninhabited.
The Quirimbas islands stretch some 200 miles along one of the most unexplored stretches of coastline and is without a doubt one of the best yacht charter destinations in the world.
Most islands are uninhabited and all are blessed with white sandy beaches surrounded by a tropical Indian Ocean and a marine environment that has remained vertially untouched. It is no wonder that these islands are being heralded as the new Seychelles.
The whole mainland coastline also remains completely unexplored, along with its many coves, beaches and coral reef. Virtually unknown to the outside world, the indiginous people who inhabit the islands have quietly gone about their daily business. Local fishermen build Arab style dhows hand-hewn from trees. They navigate hundreds of kilometres of winding channels and mangrove lagoons casting their nets and lines much as they have done for the last 1000 years.
It is the 'undiscovered' nature of these islands that make it so special. This is a place in the world where there are no cars, no roads, few hotels and therefore few tourists.
