There are many exciting activities for children to choose from which include exploring interesting marine life above and below the water, searching for pansy shells on an island which appears at low tide, experience cultural encounters, climb dunes, look for crocodiles, taste the island’s fruits or play soccer with the local team.  The long sandy beaches found here are ideal for walks and with a host of activities on offer – the signature Island Hop with a picnic lunch cannot be missed.  Access to Benguerra Island in Mozambique is via a scenic helicopter ride from the Vilanculos International Airport.


Located in the breath taking Quirimbas Archipelago which consists of more than 30 sand islands, the luxurious Azura Quilalea Beach Resort is a completely private island offering brilliant scuba diving and snorkelling on the House Reef.  Featuring a true ‘Robinson Crusoe’ style retreat with only 9 villas, the Azura Quilalea Hideaway offers the best private island getaway for travellers. Villa Quilalea is the most secluded of these featuring its own infinity plunge pool – perfect for honeymooners!  The small tidal difference in the ocean allows guests to swim throughout the day.
