Opposite the coastal town of Vilanculos, part of the mainland, lies a chain of magnificent islands – The Bazaruto Archipelago.
This string of small islands, including Bazaruto and Benguerra, form a Marine National Park, each of them impossibly idyllic, with soft white beaches, warm, clear blue sea with miles upon miles of reefs, masses of soaring palm trees and quaint little villages. Fish life here is abundant, making these islands a huge magnet for scuba drivers and snorkelers.
