Vamizi Island lies just off the coast of northern Mozambique in the Quirimbas Archipelago.
The Archipelago is made up of 32 coral islands and stretched for 100 kilometres along the coast from Pemba to the Rovuma River, the natural border between Mozambique and Tanzania. Vamizi Island is 12 kilometres long and 2 kilometres wide.
Vamizi Island is surrounded by clear, bright turquoise and blue water, abundant with marine life and unbleached, untouched coral reefs. The main lodge ,situated on the north side of the island on the edge of thick coastal forests, looks out across a wide white beach onto the Indian Ocean beyond.
Vamizi Island has only one lodge on the island so it has the space for each villa to have it’s own part of the beach.
Thirteen 1 and 2 bedroomed villas are right on the shoreline, all with wonderful views of the ocean. All are airy and generous with timbered floors and have plenty of space to accommodate beds, sofas, a marble shower and vanity area and a sundeck.
Vamizi Island is all about barefoot relaxation and rooms are open to catch the natural breezes.
Through continued donations and a conservation fee charged to every guest, the Maluane Project continues to support marine research, community outreach and direct conservation initiatives. The Maluane Project is all about the preservation of Vamizi’s remote wilderness.
It is hoped that by the use of responsible tourism to provide funding and to conserve and raise awareness of this extraordinary undertaking, Vamizi Island and its environs will remain as unspoilt and beautiful for many generations to come.

Beneath the surface of the Vamizi seas is an outstanding reefscape - mountains, valleys, plateaux and cliffs- teeming with a bewildering amount of sea life, from whales, dolphins, turtles and reef sharks to gregorian corals and giant clams.
Present in the Vamizi seas - the majority all year round - are a huge variety of big game fish, such as wahoo, yellowfin tuna, greater trevally,sailfish and marlin.
With a kilometre deep drop-off just off the coast, the Vamizi fishing grounds lie as little as ten to thirty minutes from the lodge, making even half a day’s fishing highly productive.
For those who prefer to stay on land, it is also easy to catch a number of fish species straight off the beach, either on a fly or using live bait.
