Why You Should Explore Mozambique’s Beach Resorts
By Parker Diakite
Mozambique’s coastline is a hidden gem in East Africa. The beaches located on the country’s coastline make for the perfect postcard. The white sands, glittering-blue water, and palm trees hanging in the middle of the beach are images you only see in magazines.
Mozambique is an underrated vacation destination that’s overshadowed by its African Mauritius and Seychelles, despite the fact that its beauty can rival its counterparts.
In addition to its stunning beaches that remain unspoiled by human activity, here are 4 other reasons why you should explore Mozambique’s Beach Resorts.
The sun shines in Mozambique most of the year and its warm tropical climate is what attracts visitors from all around the world.
The year-round sunshine and warm weather provide optimal weather for various activities, including scuba diving, sailing, snorkeling, and fishing.
Speaking of scuba diving, Mozambique’s dry season is considered to be the best time to visit Mozambique and is the peak tourist season when avid sea divers head into the ocean to the exotic marine life.
Mozambique is famous for its spices, coconut-flavored dishes, and cashew nuts that are grown locally. Another thing Mozambique is known for: fresh seafood from the water.
The fascinating mix of vibrant cultures due to centuries of Portuguese and Arab influence can be noticed in the food.
It’s common for local restaurants to serve the Portuguese inspired chicken peri-peri and tomato-based fish stews, and deliciously sweet desserts.
If Pope Francis can travel on a budget to Mozambique, then so can you.
In fact, affordability is one of the best things about traveling to this beautiful African country.
Expect to pay more for luxury resorts but if you’re looking for something cheaper, consider Chuiba Bay Lodge, Gala Gala Eco Resort, or Archipelago Resort.
Beyond The Resorts
Mozambique is known primarily as a beach destination but its national parks are starting to recover from decades of civil war. The Gorongosa National Park and Niassa Reserve are perfect for those wanting to experience nature and wilderness without the crowds.
