Fodor's Expert Review Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa

Medjumbe Island, Quirimbas, , Cabo Delgado, Mozambique Fodor's Choice

Your quintessential private-island resort doesn't get much better than this. The tiny island (just over half a mile long by a quarter mile wide) lies in the deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean, just off the north coast of Mozambique in the Quirimbas Marine Reserve. You can amble around the white beaches of the whole island in about forty minutes. Unwind in one of thirteen enchanting beach chalets, each with a fringed palm leaf thatch roof, wooden deck, plunge pool, and a cool Arabian Nights interior that would have immediately seduced Scheharazade. Snorkeling and diving are superb among nearby breathtaking coral reefs and you also won't be able to stop yourself from diving into the spectacular delights of the seafood, from giant prawns and crayfish to squid and line fish.
