The undiscovered pearl of Africa’s east coast, Mozambique’s miles of coastline means there’s plenty to see and do in and around the palm-fringed beaches, such as diving in the Bazaruto Archipelago. For a touch of Robinson Crusoe, you can spend a night or two on Medjumbe, a tiny private island in the Quirimbas Archipelago where experiences range from whale watching trips to remote island picnics. Head to Ilha de Mocambique to immerse yourself in the country’s colonial heritage. Here, many of the island’s crumbling buildings are protected by its World Heritage status.
