Bazaruto Island


Photo by Alfredo De Simone

Approximately 35 km (22 miles) long and at most 7 km (4 miles) wide, Bazaruto Island or Ilha do Bazaruto is the largest and most frequently visited island in the archipelago. Characterized by towering sand dunes, Bazaruto is home to the Samango monkey, red duiker as well as numerous species of butterflies and birds. And aside from great scuba diving and snorkeling and excellent game and surf fishing enjoy birdwatching, sand boarding, horseback riding and hiking. Observe black-winged flamingos and turtle's nest. Visit a mangrove community and trek to the old Farol (lighthouse). Arrange a picnic on Pansy Island and turn what once would have been a romantic excursion for two into a family outing in the spirit of Robinson Crusoe. And relax. This is one place where you won't be distracted from spending quality time with the kids.
