    Popular all year round, rain season is generally from December to end March.  Whale season is between July and September and Turtle hatching season is normally from December to March.

The idyllic coral island of &Beyond Vamizi is situated in the Quirimbas Archipelago, a marine conservation area just off the coast of northern Mozambique.  It offers powder white beaches, that rival those of the Maldives, surrounded by a dazzling variety of shades of azure blue ocean waters.  These waters boasts some of the most significant and endangered habitats and wildlife in the western Indian Ocean.  The reefs at Vamizi have been deemed one of the healthiest coral reef ecosystems in the world – a big draw card for diving and snorkeling enthusiasts.  The island is the perfect escape for families and groups with a variety of activities to enjoy and seemingly endless stretches of deserted beaches.

Each private villa has its own chef, personal butler and villa team to ensure that guests enjoy many adventures and tailor made menus during their stay on the island.


Each Private Villa chef prides himself on being able to tailormake menus that compliment the villa guests.  Enjoy lovingly prepared dishes made up of the freshest seafood and local ingredients to be found, served on the beach in front of the villa, in the dining room or castaway picnic on a remote beach on the island.


&Beyond Vamizi has so much to offer that there is never enough time to enjoy everything.  The mangrove forest along the coastline provides an extensive nursery for fish, including many endangered species.  It is the perfect location for kayaking.  Guests can discover the pristine coral reefs, home to over 300 species of reef fish, whilst diving or snorkeling.  Welcome the seasonal arrival of baby green turtles as they hatch from protected sites on the island.  There is also whale watching (seasonal), traditional dhow cruises, guided nature walks, local community visits, deep sea fishing, ethical spear fishing and fly fishing as well as in room private yoga sessions and spa treatments.
