Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort and Spa is an exquisite island resort, situated on the idyllic and pristine Bazaruto Island. It offers visitors the quintessential Indian Ocean island holiday, as well as a gateway to the unspoilt beauty of the Bazaruto Archipelago.
The Bazaruto Archipelago islands in Mozambique were formed when sand was deposited here hundreds of thousands of years ago by the waters of the Limpopo River. The river estuary has now been shifted through various tectonic forces several hundred kilometres to the south.
During low tide many white sandy islands pop up, covered in shells. Only 6 hours later they will be 10 metres underwater again. Legend has it that the Portuguese disposed of prisoners this way, by dropping them off on a beautiful deserted island.
Outside of Africa, Portugal has the best air connections with Mozambique. Both South African Airways and LAM Mozambique airlines are good for regional flights in and out of Maputo, though it's cheaper to fly to Johannesburg, South Africa, and travel by road to Mozambique.
From within Africa, travellers can fly between Maputo and Lilongwe, Malawi, or Johannesburg. The airport departure tax for international flights is US$10. Domestic flights departure tax is US$5.00.
