Vamizi Island is truly a stunning private island where luxury and nature meet. The picturesque villas over look the beach and come with private chef, butler and other friendly staff.
Set among the Quirimbas Archipelago, in a marine conservation area off the coast of northern Mozambique, the idyllic coral island of Vamizi private island beckons to lovers of sun, sand and azure waters. Blessed with a tropical climate and offering immaculate powder-soft beaches that rival those of the Maldives, Vamizi is the perfect escape for families and groups.
Seemingly endless stretches of wild, deserted beaches lend themselves to quiet hour-long walks, as pristine Indian Ocean waters lap along the coastline, enticing snorkellers and scuba divers to explore its kaleidoscopic reefs. Tuck into a mouth-watering castaway picnic, toast the sunset from a traditional dhow, try your hand at deep-sea fishing and welcome the seasonal arrival of baby green turtles as they hatch from protected sites along the island. This is a destination to be explored at your own pace. A setting to not only reconnect with loved ones but with yourself, and the opportunity to enjoy island living at its finest.

The island is also a sanctuary for mangrove forests, one of the earth’s most threatened habitats.
