A beach lodge with all the amenities of a hotel in an excellent location

Matemo lies on one of the larger islands of the striking Quirimbas Archipelago.  Operated by Rani Resorts (of Indigo Bay, Medjumbe and Pemba Hotel), Matemo is one of the larger beach lodges in Quirimbas.  The thatched chalets are appointed slightly like hotel rooms (rather than rustic beach lodges), with all the amenities including air conditioning and satellite TV.

The location is pure Mozambique beach bliss and there are a variety of non-motorised activities such as wind-surfing, snorkelling from the beach and kayaking included in the rate.  Fishing and diving are available too but at an additional cost.

Matemo is reached via a light aircraft flight from Pemba.

Accommodation:

24 palm thatched, air conditioned chalets

Experience:

A beach lodge with all the amenities of a hotel in an excellent location

Quirimbas Archipelago

If Quirimbas were to appear in the dictionary, it would do so along with words such as pristine, remote, unexplored, relaxed and all those lovely things that are becoming increasingly rare in our world. Being at the far northern extreme of Mozambique, this collection of thirty-odd islands and coral heads is understandably less developed than its southern counterpart, Bazaruto. Small beach lodges are dotted around the islands which you reach by small plane from the town of Pemba on the mainland. Read more?

Mozambique

Mozambique offers some of the best beach holidays for those that have a love for private island getaways, turquoise seas and pure white sand.  The marine life is colourful, plentiful and varied so this is one of the best places you could be if you enjoy diving or want to learn.  The wildlife areas are pretty wild but gradually opening up so for safaris in Mozambique there is increasingly good reason to explore these beautiful parts of the country (especially since they are still well off the beaten track).  Go straight to our selection of Mozambique experiences.

Catherine Ronan

Rumour has it that Catherine Ronan used to be a spy. We find this slightly hard to believe as she loves nothing more than to divulge her travel secrets and infect other people with her enthusiasm.
