_Vilanculos and the Bazaruto Archipelago
The Bazaruto Archipelago is made up of 4 large islands, Bazaruto, Benguerra, Santa Isobel and Santa Carolina. The town of Vilcanulos lies on the mainland, and is the gateway to exploring these tropical beauties.
Vilanculos has a number of bars and restaurants and is bustling with a vibrant nightlife. From here there are flights out to the islands, where a range of luxurious beach lodges has been set up to make the most of the beautiful waters and coral reefs.
Highlights of Vilcanulos and the Bazaruto Archipelago include:
For centuries, dhows have sailed peacefully off the coast of the islands, with the winds being masterfully employed by local sailors.
You can jump on board some of the dhows for day excursions out to the reefs or sandbanks, and relish picnic lunches or seafood barbecue.
Enjoy sunset cruises or fishing trips, and make the most of the island lifestyle.
