The luxurious Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa on the remote Medjumbe Island - one of the many islands making up the Quirimbas Archipelago in Northern Mozambique - This Mozambique Island Resort is an intimate island resort, the ideal Mozambique island getaway for those who wish to experience exclusivity and privacy on a remote tropical island.
Medjumbe Island is 800 metres in length and 350 metres wide - a magical destination with private beaches and countless coves to be discovered and blissful surroundings to be experienced. The island is accessed from Pemba by light aircraft transfer, a mere 40-minute flight. Alternatively from Matemo Island resort, a 20-minute flight.
The Villas at Medjumbe blend in with their surroundings and have little to no impact on the local eco systems.
The 12 Beach Pool Villas on Medjumbe Resort is the ultimate in sophisticated simplicity, just steps away from the warm Indian Ocean. Nestling on the white sands, they offer privacy and seclusion, yet are situated conveniently close to our guest areas. Each chalet is luxuriantly furnished in crisp blues and whites, offering a full en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower, and is refreshingly air-conditioned. Ceiling fans, mosquito nets, hair dryer, mini bar, an electronic safe, satellite TV and tea/coffee making facilities are included in every chalet.
Outside each Beach Pool Villas, a private plunge pool with stunning Indian Ocean views provides relief from the tropical Mozambique heat and a hammock ensures ultimate relaxation, the Quirimbas way. Ensconced in your private beach haven is as close as it gets to personal heaven.
At a Mozambican restaurant resort that feels miles away from the rest of the world, the chefs at the Medjumbe island resort dish up the kind of culinary diversity that promises to satisfy your cravings, while enticing you to try something new and tantalising.
From Mozambique’s bold flavours to European classics hailing from Portuguese colonial times, a nod to the finest global fair and flame grilled ocean treasures, dining at Anantara Medjumbe Island serves endless highlights of mouth watering indulgence.
The central dining area, decks and patios are designed for privacy and barefoot luxury. Lounge around the pool overlooking the translucent ocean, sip cocktails (try our delicious caipirinhas!) in the bar area, or ensconce yourself upstairs in the informal lounge where you can gaze out at paradise whilst you sip espressos, check your email (if you truly have to!), read or play games.
Diving - Quirimbas Archipelago; The tropical waters around the Quirimbas islands are one of Mozambique's best-kept secrets. Here in clear waters that reach 30°C in summer, and rarely less than 26°C in winter, you will discover a marine ecosystem that is absolutely pristine. Medjumbe's spectacular coral reef with its dazzling colour palette of fish remains little explored, and apart from the 12 known dive sites, intrepid divers can set out to explore a host of new dive locations so far undiscovered. Ask our dive master to let you name the site you discover!
Mozambique Fishing; The Quirimbas Archipelago offers some of the most spectacular fishing in the world. Unspoilt and largely unexplored, the Indian Ocean here with its deep Mozambique Channel harbours some of the most exciting game fish to catch - species such as Kingfish, Queenfish, Barracuda, Mackerel and Yellowfin Tuna. Even novice anglers are sure to be delighted with a catch!
Water Sports at Medjumbe Private Mozambique Island; A world of discovery awaits you on our breathtaking tropical idyll. For marine adventures, such as diving, snorkelling or fishing, you could not choose a more idyllic natural environment, whilst water sports such as sailing, water-skiing, windsurfing and kayaking provide endless action-packed fun.

Mozambique Underwater WonderlandsThe coastline of Africa offers a wealth of dive opportunities and there is no shortage of well-equipped operations to ensure that every diving holiday is one to remember. Let’s take a look at two spectacular dive locations off the usual tourist circuit.Northern Mozambique.
What To Do In MaputoThere are some cities which are instantly familiar even if you have never visited them before and they are in far away and exotic locations. If you are Eurocentric or travelled around the Mediterranean basin or the South American coastline, you would immediately feel at home in Maputo.
Top 5 restaurants in MaputoMaputo, also known as the "city of Acacias" or the "Pearl of the Indian Ocean." At the beginning of the 1990s, this would have been considered a bad joke. Two decades of hardcore communist rule and then a civil war had left its mark. Infrastructure collapse, decay and hopelessness.
Is Mozambique safe?For many people living in southern Africa, Mozambique was a sought after holiday destination until independence in 1975. It then entered a period of decline prompted by the creation of a communist state and a civil war.
Beat The Winter Blues Mozambique StyleMany Europeans and Americans forget that it can get quite cold in Africa. Whilst the northern hemisphere is basking in summer sunshine, we in Cape Town have dug out our coats, rain jackets and thick pullovers and are focusing our energies on making fires and eating soups.
