The magnificent Quirimbas Archipelago in Cabo Delgado Province, Northern Mozambique, consisting of 32 islands,stretches from the city of Pemba in the south to the town of Palma in the north.

The Quirimbas National Park includes a vast expanse of forest and some of the unspoilt southern islands of the Archipelago. The Quirimbas have enormous cultural and historical value, with a combination of Arabian, Portuguese and African influences.

The 1 500 square km marine area of Quirimbas National Park includes 11 coral islands stretching for 100km. The tiny island of Medjumbe is teeming with fascinating bird life, including the Black Heron. Game fish including Marlin, Sailfish, Dogtooth Tuna, Mackerel, various species of Kingfish and the infamous Bonefish can be found here.

Accommodation
Medjumbe Island Resort recently re-opened after a stunning revamp which included the addition of a private plunge pool at each of the 13 luxury chalets. The chalets offer luxury facilities, with private sundecks just a few steps away from the beach. All chalets have air-conditioning and the convenience of mini-bars and tea-coffee making facilities, as well as en-suite bathroom with bath & shower, plus an outdoor shower. The restaurant boasts an inside and outside deck with veranda & main swimming pool.

This private island is only one kilometre in length and 500 metres in width. Medjumbe is now the ultimate Honeymooners getaway, with various romantic extras especially for Honeymooners, including a private dinner for two on the beach.

Stoll along pure white shores and marvel at the turquoise ocean. Traditional Mozambique stone architecture adds texture and intrigue. The nearby Quissanga is an ideal choice for a romantic expedition.

Treat yourself to an underwater wonderland with captivating diving and snorkelling where you can experience some of the world’s richest coral reefs. The Quirimbas Islands feature phenomenal vertical drop-offs, some up to 400 meters. These walls are abundant with coral covered caves and tropical fish ranging from Gobies to mammoth Napoleon Wrasse and game fish including Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel.

Medjumbe is accessed from Pemba by a 40-minute light aircraft transfer
