A place in the sun and a beautiful resort! Jaw dropping view over one of the most amazing beaches. Sheltered by islands, the Archipelago Resort offers you various sports activities.. diving, snorkling. canoeing and fantastic horseback riding. Great, warmhearted service from the wonderful staff members. I highly recommend Archipelago Resort as they offer high quality for a resonable price.

Having been to two different destinations in Mozambique previously, I was a little disappointed when we arrived at our resort. For some reason i imagined we would be on level ground with the beach, not raised and without direct access except from the pool area. We were situated in a sea facing unit (no.7) and had an amazing sea view....
