Waters of the Bazaruto Archipelago

  • Bangwe Island in the closest to Pambele, taking approximately 20 minutes by boat and makes a beautiful setting for sundowners, or just a good place to relax for the afternoon. With little on the island apart from sand dunes and sea it provides an idyllic spot for a quiet relaxation.
  • Benguerra Island is 11km by 5km and the nearest inhabited island to Pambele. The island was originally named Santa Antonio by the Portuguese explorers, but was later re-named as Benguerra after a local Tribal Chief. There are a number of lodges on the island and even it's own airstrip.
  • Bazaruto Island is 37km by 7km. Often flamingos can be seen frequenting the tidal flats and the freshwater lakes on the island can be home to crocodiles. The East of the island is mainly sandy beaches, whilst the West is more inhabited by grasslands and thickets.
  • Margaruque are beautiful and peaceful, attracting anyone who loves nature, the sun or water sports. The islands are close to many coral reefs to amaze both snorkelers and divers. There are also numerous wrecks for divers to explore in the surrounding waters.
  • Santa Carolina is highly regarded as the jewel in the 5 islands forming the Bazaruto Archipelago, a proclaimed marine national park.
