Quirimbas Archipelago

Dotted along the Mozambican coastline are 32 idyllic islands that make up the Quirimbas Archipelago. Here, a plethora of marine life, ranging from turtles and dugongs to whales and dolphins, and a thriving coral reef beckon to diving enthusiasts. The magnificent Quirimbas National Park offers nature lovers the opportunity to explore a vast expanse of enchanted forest. The Quirimbas boast enormous cultural and historical value. The islands represent a melting-pot of Portuguese, Arabian and African influences, while historic landmarks such as the old fort on Ibo Island tell tales of slavery, pirates and the ominous ivory trade.
