Powder-beached archipelagos offer idyllic island escapes surrounded by the warm azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Shake the dust from your safari boots as the unblemished beaches and deep blue sea of Mozambique's coastline beckon. Its islands are the quintessential barefoot paradise; dolphins and whales bask in the warm ocean, turtles nest on tranquil sands and, beneath the azure waters, untouched reefs are home to a multitude of marine life and iridescent corals. Everywhere, a unique blend of African, Arabian and Portuguese influences pervade, most evident in the spicy cuisine and Latin beat of the local music. In the sub-tropical south, the five dune islands of the Bazaruto Archipelago break the surface of the shimmering Indian Ocean with spectacularly beautiful lands of powder beaches, forested dunes and lush vegetation - home to Samango monkeys and a kaleidoscope of butterflies. The warm waters host pristine reefs, paradise for snorkellers and divers alike. Fish for bluefin, kingfish and Dorado or sail the sultry coastline under the setting sun in an ancient dhow, spoiling in Mozambique's secure seclusion.
The drier months from June to October are generally the best months to visit for tropical weather, clear skies and temperatures around 30°C. The hot, humid rainy season runs from December to March.
