Medjumbe Island Accommodation

The Quirimbas Islands lie in the Indian Ocean off northeastern Mozambique, close to Pemba. The archipelago consists of about 27 islands, including Medjumbe Island. Originally home to fishing settlements, the islands' population grew around Arab trading posts and thrived under the Portuguese trading routes when it was known as the Ilhas de Sao Lazaro (Islands of St. Lazarus). Today, many of the islands are uninhabited. The Quirimbas National Park, spanning an area of 7 500 km², includes the 11 most southerly islands. The park was established in 2002. These islands are known for their high-quality diving sites, including phenomenal drop-offs, some up to 400 meters.

True hedonistic pleasure awaits you at the romantic and exclusive island getaway of Medjumbe Private Island. Set like a jewel within the glittering Quirimbas Archipelago, Medjumbe is a small private Mozambique island only one km long and 500 meters wide. This tiny pristine island with its breathtaking coral reefs and ocean views is world-renowned for delicious seafood, gracious hospitality and exceptional diving. A ‘can-do’ attitude and slow pace makes Medjumbe both remarkable and memorable. A perfect vista of endless white sand and translucent sea mesmerizes all who visit.

Getting There: Access to Medjumbe Island is via a scenic light aircraft, operated by CFA Air Charters, transfer from Pemba Airport - 45 minutes in duration. Pemba, situated on the mainland in northern Mozambique, is accessed from Johannesburg, with direct flights operated by Airlink, as well as from Maputo, Dar es Salaam and Nairobi.
