Magaruque Island

Circumnavigating Magaruque on foot is a leisurely three-hour stroll along deserted white beaches. The ambience of the island is relaxed and intimate.  Once revamped (work seems to have come to a grinding halt), Magaruque Island Resort will offer full board and lodging, and a choice of rooms, bungalows and chalets.

Magaruque has the advantages of a paved airstrip, superb snorkelling or scuba diving on a coral reef just a short swim from the front of the hotel, and ease of access from the mainland. Transfers in ski-boats to and from Vilanculos are available by prior arrangement, and there are always dhow rides for the adventurous.
