Most beautiful beach. - Clear, clean water with the most amazing white beaches, to stroll from one restaurant to the next on the beach feeling very good and happy!

Gateway to Bazaruto islands - Vilanculos lies at the gateway of the Bazaruto Archipelago Mozambique’s only underwater National Park – which comprises five islands – Bazaruto, Benguerra, Margaruque, Bangue and Santa Carolina. Here one can truly connect with nature. The coral reefs attract a rich diversity of tropical fish and other marine creatures, and are regarded as some of the most diverse and least disturbed in the Western Indian Ocean. Several activities can be booked to explore the amazing beauty of this location - a real paradise. You can do snorkeling or scuba diving on the famous reefs of the Bazaruto Islands, horse riding the unique coastline landscapes, jump aboard a traditional sailing dhow and visit the islands, learn about the history and culture of these amazing people and the more adventurous can give it a go on a kitesurfing course or explore the bay on a Stand Up paddling board. Different massages, crystal healing and beauticians are also available just to spoil you during your holiday.

Stay in Vilanculos - Clean place, safe and friendly people. Breathtaking views and the other resorts are more organized. Food differs from ours.
