Kayaking and Stand Up Paddling on the Quirimbas Islands

Glide through the water on a kayak, stand up paddle board or Hobie Cat

The essence of the experience

Surrender yourself to the wind on a sailboat or choose to challenge yourself in a kayak. Boasting warm tropical waters and seemingly infinite stretches of powdery beaches in between the islands, the Quirimbas are the ideal destination for a range of thrilling water sports, whether for complete novices or experienced adventurers.

Ideal for those who want to explore the waters in relative comfort, while also getting some exercise, a variety of kayaking options are available on the islands. At &Beyond Vamizi Island guests can choose from a selection of single or double kayaks and set off on either a guided or a solo kayaking adventure in the tranquil waters surrounding the island. The glassy waters offer the ideal place for beginners to practice and the island’s estuary and mangrove swamp provide plenty of attractions, from the tiny and colourful kingfishers to majestic green herons and swooping fish eagles.

Paddle quietly down secluded rivers, explore pristine mangrove estuaries and discover untouched island bays. Enjoy the tranquil company of dolphins, which frequently swim alongside kayakers, or spot massive whales breaching in the distance.

Those who prefer to give themselves up to the vagaries of the wind can take advantage of the regular trade breezes and calm seas found to the north of &Beyond Vamizi Island to sail out on one of a selection of Hobie Cats.
