‘leave nothing but your incredibly spoilt, sandy footprints’
On this unique and remote Mozambique Island tailor made for your beach holiday you will find that Vamizi Island’s beaches have some of the best sand in the world.
So fine it squeaks like icing sugar as you walk on it,so pale and clean that kicking off your shoes is second nature. It’s as if we sift the beach every morning – the only litter you’re likely to see is shells and coral.
What makes it all the more amazing is that you hardly share the shores with anyone (a few other lodge guests and some turtles, perhaps).
You can beach-comb for untouched miles or lounge about in total privacy.
The tropical sea that gently laps the shores is a nature reserve and is as beautiful as you’ve ever seen it.
So take nothing but photographs and leave nothing but your incredibly spoilt sandy footprints.
Vamizi Island Lodge:
Thirteen impossibly romantic timber villas strung loosely along one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
Simply grand or grandly simple – this lodge isn’t about the usual five star luxury and all mod cons,it’s about the more rarified pleasures of exclusive island life.
Imagine wafting through muslin and filtered sunlight,flopping straight from your room into a private ocean and enjoying elegant lunches with your toes in the sand…
It’s hard to compete with the perfect desert island, so we don’t.
We just take what comes on the breeze, and mold it into a more civilized form.
‘On the shoreline, with to-die-for views of the ocean’
Vamizi has one of the most spectacular and rich marine eco-systems in the world and a day trip or an overnight safari on Tusitiri would be an ideal add-on to a stay at the Vamizi Lodge or Private Villas and a charming way to explore the nearby islands.
This slim crescent of sundrenched land situated in the little known Quirimbas Archipelago of Northern Mozambique is the ultimate honeymoon heaven
Crusoe invented castaway chic but Vamizi Island Lodge defines it with thirteen impossibly romantic timber villas strung loosely along one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
Simply grand or grandly simple – this lodge isn’t just about the usual five star luxury and all mod con, it’s about the more rarefied pleasures of exclusive island life.
Subscribing to the “No News, No Shoes” principle of holiday guests come to Vamizi to get away from it all and escape to their own private island.
‘A unique and precious island habitat’
Vamizi Island is a whale-shaped sliver of coral, fringed with perfect white sand, grown over with wild, indigenous tropical bush and preserved and protected by the Vamizi Island project.
This craggy coral wilderness – with practically no rainfall – benefits from minimal human impact and is a unique and precious island habitat.
It is home to a large number of land-based coastal species of flora and fauna.
Out in the bush are some of the island’s greatest treasures:
- The giant coconut crabs – vegetarian scavengers with a magpie-like attraction to anything from mobile phones to sandals – who crush coconuts in impressively strong claws;
- The samango monkeys – close relatives of the blue monkey
- Incredibly for such a small island 112 bird species have been recorded as either resident or visitors.
With numerous butterflies and an exotic selection of tropical trees,bushes and flowers,our nature guides have no shortage of inner island life to show you; they will be genuinely thrilled if you take an interest and follow them through the tangled interior.
Vamizi Island is basically one big spa’
You couldn’t want for a better place for healing.
Vamizi Island is basically one big spa – with nurture for the entire self, both above and below the water.
We’ve also added the luxuries of some of the best energy and body treatments available –such as bespoke yoga massage, reflexology and heated herbal stone massage.
We’ve also introduced beauty therapies that are uniquely Vamizi, using natural recipes borrowed from the local ladies as well as creating a few oceanic inventions of our own – minerals ground from Vamizi rocks, local seaweed masks and sea salt scrubs – to prepare your pelt for that perfect tan.
We design your Africa experience as you want it.
