Fodor's Expert Review Anantara Beach Resort & Spa Bazaruto Island

Bazaruto Island, Bazaruto, Inhambane, Mozambique

You'll find great food, friendly and efficient service, comfortable reed-and-thatch villas, and lots to do at this award-winning 5-star resort on Bazaruto Island, an acclaimed marine national park. The lodge prides itself on preserving the natural environment and investing in the community to help the locals. Its tag-and-release fishing activities have resulted in an almost 100% release rate for marlin and sailfish caught by guests. The Bazaruto Archipelago, one of Africa's top diving sites, is home to spectacular coral reefs with over 100 species of coral, game fish, dolphins, a huge variety of tropical fish species, and four whale species. Spot marine turtles (all five species can be found) and take an expedition to find the rare marine mammal, the dugong—supposed source of the mermaid myth. A picnic on the Paradise Island is a highlight. Check out the all-inclusive special packages.
