Medjumbe Private Island Resort and Matemo Island Resort are adjacent to each other in the spectacular Quirimbas Archipelago of northern Mozambique – a chain of tropical islands, few of which are occupied. These could vindicate the word “ultimate” being used for an unspoilt marine environment and for exceptional peaceful relaxation.
They are both located right on the beach with perfect vistas of endless white sand and translucent sea. The islands are reached via a 45-minute spectacular scenic flight from mainland Pemba’s international airport and you arrive in a world that is pure bliss – tropical, exotic and largely unexplored. Most assuredly one of the world’s untouched gems. Pemba is accessed by air from Johannesburg with direct SA Airlink flights as well as by flights from Maputo (Mozambique), Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and Nairobi (Kenya). Look at a map and realise the ease!
Medjumbe, a small private island only 1km long and 500m wide, is romantic and ultra exclusive, featuring 13 beach chalets, all with air conditioned luxury and plunge pool to stave off the tropical heat. Matemo has 24 palm-thatched chalets on the beach.
And when you’re there you may delight in hobeycat sailing, fly fishing, deep sea big game fishing, kayaking, snorkelling and diving in waters that reach 30 C in summer.
