Hidden like pirate treasure off Mozambique's north coast, the 31 islands that make up the Quirimbas archipelago are as culturally intriguing as they are stunningly beautiful. Their soft white beaches encompassed by aquamarine waters are truly mesmerising, while the diverse bird and marine life is spectacular.
Visit the fascinating star-shaped Fort of São João Baptista on Ibo Island - inside is a humble Maritime Museum, which focuses on the Isles rich history, and showcases local Mwani culture. You can also climb on to the ramparts to enjoy extraordinary views of the coastline.
The southernmost Islands of the archipelago are protected as the Quirimbas National Park, which covers over 7,500 square miles of coastal mangrove and mainland forests. While there are some classic African fauna such as elephant and lion on the mainland, the park is better known for its myriad bird species and rich marine life.
The Northern coast is best known for the superb diving spots, some up to 400 meters, where dolphin, turtles and sharks can all be seen, along with colourful fish scattered along the coral reefs.
