Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa
Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort & Spa, Quirimbas Archipelago, Mozambique
Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort and Spa is located above a long sandy beach on Medjumbe Island. Just one kilometer long and 500 meters wide Medjumbe is a quaint little island with old stone ruins and bustling with birdlife including the rare black heron.
There are twelve luxury chalets along the back of the beach that are peaceful and private, each with its own private plunge pool. Inside the chalets are comfortable and spacious and have air-conditioning, queen sized beds and en-suite bathroom. Each chalet has a spacious veranda and is between 10 and 20 meters from the beach.
The main lodge houses an airy dining room and activity centre from where you can arrange dive, snorkel and fishing trips. Medjumbe is close to the St Lazarus Banks, an amazing reef system, and thus is ideal for keen snorkellers and divers. The nearby island of Quisanga is also not far and ideal for a day's expedition.

Experiences while staying here
The following activities are designed to give you the most authentic experiences of the area where you’re staying. We work with local guides, who use their knowledge and often a resident’s eye to show you the main sights and more out-of-the-way attractions. Our specialists can also suggest outdoor pursuits and activities, such as cooking classes, that will introduce you to the traditions of the area’s inhabitants.
An enjoyable way to spend a morning is with a trip to Ibo Island. Ibo was a key Swahili trading post and the capital before Pemba.You can wander amongst the main streets which have fascinating, but very crumbling, colonial architecture.
You can explore the island on which there is a very small fishing village where you often see fish out on racks to dry. There is a good amount of coral around the island and the snorkelling is wonderful.
