Bazaruto Archipelago - Mozambique
This string of spectacular subtropical islands is rated as one of the most beautiful places in Africa. Famous for pristine beaches that stretch on for almost 3 000km, the islands also offer fantastic diving.
Bazaruto: The waters around the Bazaruto Archipelago have been declared a marine conservation area. Totalling some 1400km², it is one of the largest in the Indian Ocean. There are four main islands: Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque and Santa Carolina with a host of smaller islands lying off the coast of each.
The islands are situated in the Mozambique Channel, just off the coast of Inhambane in Southern Mozambique.
Paradisical: The turquoise water is warm and translucent and therefore provides excellent visibility. There are thousands of subtropcial fishes, numerous coral reefs, anemones, seahorses and a dazzling variety of marine creatures. One of the mian attractions, is the Dugong or sea cow, which is highly endangered and of which only a very small number still exist.
Coral Reef Diving: Divers in Bazaruto may see hundreds of species of coral at favourite diving spots like the 2-Mile Reef, or may sail to Magaruque for the rock reef diving there.
