Most enchanting islands in Africa

The postage-stamp-size Medjumbe Island in Mozambique’s Quirimbas archipelago is like a Robinson Crusoe dream come true. You can explore miles of sandbars and stunning coral reefs. There is one resort — Anantara Medjumbe — and it has just 12 rooms. The island is 0.62 miles long. Medjumbe Lighthouse was built in the 1930s, worked for three months, then broke down. It has been there ever since without working. If you want to bring children under age 16, you’ll have to rent the whole resort. To get there, it’s a 45-minute flight in a small aircraft from Pemba Airport. You’ll land on the island’s private airstrip, a two-minute walk from the resort.
