Guide to Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago

You know those tropical islands you’ve been dreaming of, buttered with soft white sand and topped with skinny palm trees? We found them in Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago, 40 kilometers off the mainland city of Vilankulo in Central Mozambique. You’ll find luxury island eco-retreats like Azura’s 16 villas — $550 per person per night –each with its own private infinity pool, curved tub and outdoor monsoon shower. Each villa also has its own private butler, usually a Benguerra islander who will greet you with champagne from the owner’s French vineyard and organize every detail of your trip. At dusk, tables are laid on the sand beneath the stars, and the South African chef serves fine food made with simple, fresh ingredients.
