We recently rented one of the select few houses that have been built on this remote coral Island off the North East Coast of Mozambique. There were 5 in our party and a staff of six - mostly Zimbabwean - looked after us during our seven night stay. It was sheer magic! We spent our days relaxing, fishing, diving, snorkelling, picnicking, sunset cruising on a Dhow etc. There is a very professional fishing/ dive team with sophisticated boats and equipment. Both diving and fishing are reputed to be some of the best in the world.
Getting to Vamizi is somewhat of a challenge. We flew from London to Jo'burg, then Jo'burg to Pemba, Mozambique and then by charter flight to the Island. Alternatively, fly to Dar Es Salaam, and then by small charter plane to Pemba ( for Immigration/Customs clearance into Mozambique), and then on to the Island. But once there, this is truly an experience not to be missed. June to October are the mainly dry months.

Vamizi is very unique in terms of community, villas and other activities like fishing. I love fishing but the experience in Vamizi is amazing. The services they provide to their guests are really appreciable. If I got the opportunity, I would like to visit this island again.

Revwied as a specific Hotel.

As an Island - this is gorgeous, beautiful, awesome, idyllic - an apparent paradise.

Staffed by some super folks - mostly Mozambiquans (sic)

Vamizi island is the simply one of the most quietest places on earth . The sounds of turquoise waters lapping the white sandy beaches allow for early awakening drifting into long days where "Nothing to do" is the theme for the day . The island has it's main lodge with accommodation with the nearby diving centre in easy access . Luckily we were a working photographic group staying on the island occupying 2 of the private villas so we were extremely lucky to experience the professional management and knowledge headed up by Sharla and the villas under the careful watch and eyes of Beauty and her team . The island team too many all to mention were amazing , always there to help us at any time should it be necessary . Our villa chefs that created delicious food from sunny side up eggs with grilled tomatoes at breakfast plus plus , lobster and crab salads at lunch and delicious fresh fish with local spices B&Q'd or steamed accompanied with just enough to keep your tummy full for dinner. I've rarely been away and enjoyed great food everyday without a hitch . Let's not forget the langoustines and the freshly prepared sashimi , spring rolls and samosas . Well done boys !! You did us proud , you really did .!!
Now of course this doesn't come cheap , not cheap at all . So once you've decided on Vamizi enjoy it for all the right reasons , this is the place to take yourselves on honeymoon or the exhausted exec in need of no communication from the outside . The love birds swanning for a walk along the deserted white sandy shores, there is NOTHING to do except enjoy yourselves , read a book or 5 snorkel and swim , eat and drink and SLEEP .. Hallelujah !! There are sill places on this earth that you can actual get away from it all and don't take the children , you'll have mummy daddy what can I do all day . This island is not for them.
We flew from Europe via Istanbul and Dar Es Salam on Turkish Airlines . We had a stay over and connected to the Islands charter flight . It's a long trip , interesting stop over experience but all in all knowing where you will arrive makes it all worth while .
So spend some of the savings , take your loved one , your tired one or self but get there and enjoy every minute . Bugs none , Mosquitos none , monkeys a few , snakes never to be seen , whales breaching , turtles nesting . No wonder this is a world heritage island . Enjoy !!
