Azura Quilalea, Quirimbas Archipelago, Mozambique

Private island paradise surrounded by pristine Indian Ocean

7 nights from around £4,400pp sharing on a all-inclusive basis, including flights and transfers

Surrounded by the pristine waters of a marine sanctuary, Azura Quilalea Private Island is an uninhabited island paradise. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live out your ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway fantasies.


Nine seafront villas constructed from natural coral stone come with private plunge pools and sundecks stretching towards the beach. With a maximum of 18 clients, a high degree of privacy is assured. The clifftop Villa Quilalea offers access to a private cove and beach at low tide.

Each of the villas is constructed using local materials, with natural coral stone walls, carved wooden beams, makuti thatch roofs, and timber wooden decks. Windows have no glass, but have shutters that can be opened to allow the breezes through, or closed for more privacy at night. Each room has its own butler, on hand to cater to your every whim.

Activities & Experiences

Spend your days snorkelling in the crystal-clear, warm Indian Ocean, kayaking along the shoreline, or scuba diving to get up close to the colourful corals. There's also guided marine walks, whale watching (in season), take a stroll to explore the ancient baobab trees, or go on a day trip to visit nearby Ibo Island to learn about the fascinating local culture of the Quirimbas. When it's time for some blissful pampering, the beautiful clifftop African spa offers treatments using all natural ingredients.

Facilities & Services

The cuisine here is excellent. Enjoy delicious surf-fresh fish, exquisite salads and freshly-baked bread, and delicious dinners on the beach under the stars, in the evening. The lodge also holds a barbecue evening regularly.

Weather & Seasons

Sunshine, blue skies and temperatures averaging between 24°C and 27°C along the coast are the norm, except during the rainy summer season from about December/January through to April when everything gets a bit wet and sticky as temperatures exceed 30°C.

The best time to visit is from May/June to November, during the cooler dry season.

Getting Here

Fly to Johannesburg and connect with the 2 hour flight to Pemba on the Mozambique coast, followed by a helicopter flight to Quilalea Island.
