Quilálea Island is one of the Southernmost islands in Mozambique's Quirimbas Archipelago, 30 nautical miles North of Pemba. It is one of the few properties in the entire archipelago to lie within a fully protected marine reserve, ensuring an abundance of marine life and, therefore, undisturbed diving and snorkeling privelages. The island is approximately 86 acres in size and is completely uninhabited, aside from the Azura team who will ensure guests' complete relaxation and enjoyment throughout their stay. The island is covered in indigenous vegetation, with ancient, mystical baobab groves and stunning flora and fauna, making it an undeniable natural paradise.
It’s just as amazing below the sea, with snorkeling accessible off the beaches and around most of the island, patrolled by huge potato bass and schools of hunting jacks, and a spectacular house reef for diving just a short fin kick away from the main beach. This is paradise for lovers of marine life and marine experiences. The incredible experience of scuba diving and snorkeling is to be had on the beaches and in the turquise waters, but Azura at Quilalea also offers a variety of activities of a different flavour: Island hopping and remote beach picnics, cultural visits including nearby historic Ibo Island, tours of the working coconut plantation on Quirimba Island and the local village, and indulging the senses at the uniquely African spa offering signature treatments based on local ingredients and traditions.
