Ibo Island historically see-sawed between Portuguese and Omani Arab rule, as a marked treasure trove. Architectural heirlooms from this era reflect a rich legacy and are atmospheric and enchanting. The rooms overlook the bay, which reflects the everyday life of Ibo people, as the fishing boats and dhows sail out to sea. From Ibo you can truly enjoy untouched and authentic Mozambican heritage and culture, as well as swim out to the ship wreck to snorkel, dive, take a castaway picnic to Mogundula Island, or kayak through the largest mangrove forest in Africa, go traditional dhow sailing, fishing or birding.
