If you’re wanting to go somewhere picture-perfect – We are talking rivalling the Seychelles here – but you can’t afford a pumped-up price-tag, you can’t go far wrong with the island of Vamizi in northern Mozambique. It’s one of the little dots in the Quirimbas Archipelago. Haven’t heard of it? Well that’s the proof in the pudding of its exclusivity. This lesser-known piece of paradise is the ultimate romantic escape, offering the best in Africa honeymoons with a vast beach that competes with the likes of North Island in the Seychelles – which was graced with the presence of Prince William and Kate Middleton on honeymoon just recently.
It’s not just the beach that’s spacious – the rooms at the lodge are enormous too, providing gorgeous barefoot luxury with four-poster beds, huge bathrooms and everything that says seduction and romance. So, if you don’t fall in love with each other all over again at Vamizi, you’ll at least fall in love with the island! Tip – why not tie a few nights here in with a Tanzania safari somewhere out-of-this-world like Beho Beho – equally as lavish as Vamizi, it’s definitely one to visit if your idea of heaven is uncompromised luxury, superb food and unrivalled guiding!
