Life is a beach! Mozambique holidays are the best and this one is my favourite. The soft, warm white sand and warm waters make it easy to do as little as possible. Take the family and the extended family along to play, eat and read. Days spent out on the water on the dhow with a picnic to one of the nearby islands- such as Margaruque, diving for pansy shells and snorkelling with the fish. Sip on a cold Manica (a local beer) on the deck to watch the sun set and light the fire early for a fresh fish or prawn BBQ from the local markets- take Johnny along, he is an excellent guide and negotiator. Fling open the windows for a natural breeze on balmy afternoons and spend the day in a hammock or on a lounger by the pool.
Situated 6km north of the coastal town of Vilanculos, it is hailed one of the best holiday destinations in East Africa with one of the best snorkelling, scuba diving and big game fishing destinations in the world- thanks to the Archipelago. Vilanculos has its own airport and operate direct flights to South Africa on a daily basis. If you happen to drive from South Africa to Vilanculos, you don’t need a 4×4 to get there as it is accessible by all vehicles. Vilanculos town are filled with friendly locals and a lively atmosphere, the town offers the perfect base from which to explore the picturesque Bazaruto Archipelago and the Bazaruto National Park. The marine reserve comprises of five pristine islands; Santa Carolina (Paradise Island), Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque and Bangue. It is so fantastic to work with the owners of Villa Ponta, they have two properties in the portfolio, both of the same unique style with lots of charm and artistic flair. The owner is an artist.
