Your private island getaway promises a wealth of adventure, on shore, at sea, or below the ocean's surface. Stroll white sands to the island's deserted lighthouse, keeping an eye out for sea turtle hatchlings. Explore some of the most beautiful reefs on earth, all within easy reach of the resort.
The uninhabited beaches of the Quirimbas Archipelago are important feeding and nesting grounds for many species of marine turtle, with nesting and hatching season running between October and April. And while there are no guarantees, with some luck, you might just witness the magic of a baby sea turtle hatching.
Our island water sports centre offers complimentary non-motorised toys, from kayaks to stand-up paddleboards. Explore the perimeter of the island, gazing at the coral life below.
Set off on a catamaran adventure or follow the locals in a traditional dhow boat. Be your own captain, with sailing lessons on offer. or sit back and relax with one of our experienced crew.
A mixture of shallow waters and deep channels make the Quirimbas Archipelago a fantastic spot for big-game fishing. Reel in a marlin, bait a dorado, or angle your way to a barracuda. Please note that our protected reserve operates a strict catch and release programme.
Whale and Dolphin Watching
We are blessed to have Arctic humpback whales migrate from July to October through the tropical waters around Medjumbe Island. Dolphins, meanwhile, can be found flying through the waves year-round.
Snorkelling the warm waters around Anantara Medjumbe opens a window onto a vast underwater landscape – complete with thriving ecosystems and colourful creatures. All snorkelling equipment provided with our compliments.
The Quirimbas Archipelago is one of the world’s premier diving destinations year-round, and yet remains pristine and uncrowded. Discover an underwater world that is home to over a hundred species of coral, thousands of tropical fish, five kinds of dolphin, four types of whale and shark, five sea turtle species, and the largest population of rare dugongs on the East African coast.
