Superbly remote plus excellent facilities make this one great place to relax and get away from it all. There is outdoor adventure galore at Indigo bay to keep you on your toes all day!

Indigo Bay Resort benefits from a pleasant tropical climate, one of the many attributes that make Mozambique popular with holidaymakers. At this resort, it’s merely a question of whether you want to spend the day in the great outdoors or cosseted in the lap of luxury in your villa.

If you do manage to tear yourself from all the comforts indoors, deciding on what to do first might prove quite a challenge. There is plenty to do, you will be spoiled for choice. If you are a landlubber, you can take a tour of the island, visiting the local village for a dose of cultural experience. The island has some amazingly tall sand dunes that are ideal for sand boarding. Horse riding is also available here.


The Indian Ocean waters surrounding Indigo Bay are teeming with marine life and rich, pristine coral reefs, which make diving and snorkeling a must. This is also the only place in Africa where the largest dugong population and the endangered whale shark are found. The rest is left to your imagination!

Enjoy the thrills and spills of sport fishing in these waters, dubbed the best marlin fishing destination on the continent. There are sailfish, wahoo, barracuda, kingfish and other big fish to be hooked here. If you are not an avid fisherman, you may want to get your adrenaline rush through the many watersports available such as knee/wake boarding and waterskiing.

Slow down the pace with an ocean safari; spotting turtles, dugongs, whales and dolphins. Try kayaking and conclude an eventful day with a romantic sunset dhow cruise. How you choose to spend your time here is entirely up to you.
