It’s impossible to talk about Mozambique without describing the warm, azure waters of the Indian Ocean and its sweeping, pristine sandy beaches fringed by palm trees. Its coastline is some 1,500 miles long and includes the perfect honeymoon islands of the Bazaruto and Quirimbas Archipelagoes for when you really need to get away from it all.
Mozambique has taken great strides towards protecting its natural heritage. Diving and snorkeling on its reefs can result in encounters with manta rays and immense but harmless whale sharks.
Perhaps the quintessential Mozambican experience is to relax in your hammock with a local 2M beer or ‘R&R’ (rum and raspberry) cocktail, gazing out over the ocean as the sun sets.
