True hedonistic pleasure awaits you at the
romantic and exclusive island getaway of Medjumbe Private Island. Set
like a jewel within the glittering Quirimbas Archipelago, Medjumbe is
a small private Mozambique island only 1km long and 500 metres wide.
In addition to private beaches, countless coves to be discovered and blissful surroundings to be experienced, Medjumbe also cater for numerous activities. For example, the coral reefs surrounding Medjumbe are one of Mozambique's best kept secrets. The untouched marine environment allows for constant new discoveries, what ever your passion is.
Our 13 beach chalets blend into the pristine environment, each palm-thatched chalet offers air-conditioned luxury and a private plunge pool to stave off the tropical heat.
Medjumbe Private Island has earned its enviable reputation
as Mozambique's best-kept secret. This tiny, pristine Quirimbas island
with its bewitching ocean views and stunning coral reefs, is world-renowned
for offering barefoot luxury, privacy and unparalleled hospitality. Its
signature is stylish simplicity, with delicious seafood, some of the world's
premier diving and fishing, and a wealth of romantic delights combining
to form a heady menu.
Each chalet is luxuriantly furnished in crisp blues and
whites, offering a full en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor shower,
and is refreshingly air-conditioned. Ceiling fans, mosquito nets, hair
dryer, mini bar, an electronic safe, satellite TV and tea/coffee making
facilities are included in every chalet.
Our central dining area, decks and patios are designed for privacy and barefoot luxury. Lounge around the pool overlooking the translucent ocean, sip cocktails (try our delicious caiparinhas!) in our bar areas, or ensconce yourself upstairs in the informal lounge where you can gaze out at paradise whilst you sip espressos, check your email (if you truly have to!), read or play games.
Whether you are a novice or accomplished diver, we will help you experience the magic of scuba diving in the tropical waters of Mozambique. We offer a range of diving courses, such as Discover Scuba, Open Water and Advanced Open Water and our experienced diving instructor co-ordinates the diving courses and plans every diving trip, taking care of all the details. We use PADI Instructors and Dive Masters as a minimum standard and do not conduct technical or deep-water dives that warrant a chamber.
Our 12 known dive sites offer a range of diving experiences that are simply breathtaking, taking in fringing reefs, coral banks and vertical and sloping reef walls. On shallower dives (8-15 metres) you are likely to see resident reef fish such as Sweetlips, Pufferfish, Angelfish and Triggerfish. Anemones filter the waters with the resident clown fish often in sight. You may also see turtles making their way out to deeper waters.
On deeper wall dives (up to 40 metres) such as Sambi Sambi, the Edge of Reason or Cliffs of Insanity, you will encounter species such as Napolean Wrasse, Groupers, Black-and White-Tip Reef Sharks, Snappers and Unicorn Fish. Here you can experience the feeling of flight as the wall gives way to deep blue waters beyond. As Medjumbe's waters are so little explored, there are always new diving sites to discover (we often name these after the guests who discover them).
One thing you will be guaranteed on any dive at Medjumbe is that very
few people have ever dived here before you.
Our fishing boat, N'Jovo is a Gulf Craft 31' Dolphin Super Deluxe, powered by two 115hp Yamaha motors. This state-of-the-art boat has an extended T-Top to shield our guests from the tropical sun. On board, our captain and gillie will present you with tackle, lures and bait, and will ensure that you have the best professional guidance, whatever your fishing ability.
One of the world's most renowned fishing destinations is accessible from the Quirimbas. St Lazarus Banks, a sea mountain 20 x 30 km in extent, rises from 2,4 km deep to within six metres of the ocean surface, bringing together a fascinating combination of marine life. We offer luxury live-aboard boat trips on our 42-ft catamaran Broadbill, based at Pemba, to St Lazarus Banks for the ultimate game fishing extravaganza.
Water Sports - Quirimbas Archipelago:
For guests who enjoy water sports, Medjumbe is a natural playground: we offer sailing, windsurfing and water skiing. Our Gulf Craft 20' Swan is used for water skiing and tubing, with wake and knee boards also available. Our sailing craft include a Gypsy sailing dinghy.
Kayaks are available for guests to explore the crystal clear Quirimbas
waters around Medjumbe or the reefs around nearby Quissanga Island. We
will happily take you by boat to explore the surrounding marine life,
which includes dolphins all year round and whales from August to November.
The Quirimbas' marine riches can also be explored by snorkeling around
the island's stunning coral reef.
Sunset cruises by boat or local dhow provide the perfect form of relaxation at the end of a blissful day. Watch the Mozambique sun sink over a perfect natural paradise and after nightfall lie back and marvel at the island's celestial treasures.
The Location - Medjumbe Private Island in the Quirimbas Archipelago:
Medjumbe is as close as one gets to earthly paradise, with unending stretches of silver beach reaching down to a translucent, aquamarine sea. Sea, sand and sky merge here in blissful cohesion, whilst unspoilt beaches, coves and small bays lie waiting to be discovered. With the island uninhabited and the surrounding ocean protected, Medjumbe represents a world untainted by man. Surrounded by such natural beauty, your soul will soar as your body relaxes into languid bliss.
