Escape the chill of winter and embrace the tropical beauty of an island perfectly perched in the beautiful Quirimbas Archipelago off the northern Mozambique coastline. If it’s an uninhabited island that you’re after, we have just the spot for you… Medjumbe Island.
Following extensive refurbishment, Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort has re-opened its doors to guests in search of their slice of paradise once again. This time featuring refreshed décor, luxury villa upgrades and new signature experiences, including a Robinson Crusoe-style star bed for the ultimate romantic escape.
Keep an eye out for the sea turtles which are often spotted trundling up in front of Anantara’s beachfront villas where they come to lay their eggs.
The island and surrounds
The remote setting and assured privacy of Medjumbe Island promises exclusivity. When the tide goes out, a white sandy beach that stretches over a mile becomes visible with intact coral and shells regularly washing up on the shore. This picture-perfect tropical island scene has to be seen to be believed.
The one kilometre long and 300 metre wide Medjumbe Island is surrounded by the waters of the Quirimbas National Park boasting an extraordinary number of untouched coral reefs that attract an abundance of marine life. It’s without a doubt one of the world’s best snorkelling and scuba diving destinations, as well as a first-class sanctuary for dolphin and whale watching boat trips.
For the adventurous at heart
Undiscovered compared to other well-known diving destinations, the underwater adventures here are truly remarkable. Stroll straight from your villa onto the beach to swim or snorkel without distraction or intrusion.
Ever wondered what it’s like to be a sailor? The resort’s new dhow sailing boat lesson offers couples a bonding 90-minute experience on the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Guided by a team of three experienced local skippers, you’ll learn how to work the ropes, check for wind direction, control the sail and steer the boat. Aye aye, Captain!
Remember the Robinson Crusoe-style star bed we mentioned earlier? This experience invites you and your partner to spend a night sleeping in a king size four-poster bed encompassed by lanterns, underneath a glimmering night sky.
