AZURA QUILALEA PRIVATE ISLAND

Azura Quilalea is a hidden gem, somewhere to retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life, with a relaxed and understated ‘Robinson Crusoe’ castaway style that belies the comforts and experiences on offer.

It is the second luxury Indian Ocean Retreat from the Azura Retreats group, bringing Azura’s trademark African-chic style to Quilalea Private Island, a wholly uninhabited island paradise surrounded by the pristine waters of the Quirimbas Archipelago marine sanctuary.

Snorkel the island’s shores, dive from the main beach, kayak the mangroves or relax beneath the giant baobabs on the island. Azura Quilalea’s nine seafront villas offer the ultimate private luxury hideaway in a stunning undiscovered destination, an untouched paradise for just a discerning few to discover. It is the only island in Mozambique with a house reef, accessible directly from the main beach, making it a fabulous destination for snorkellers, scuba divers and lovers of marine life. It is also home to more than 50 giant baobabs and 180 species of migrating birds.
