Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique

Pancy Island


Is this already an island or perhaps not yet? Perhaps not – just a sandbar maybe one kilometer long and several meters wide. Many people claim that this is one of few places in Bazaruto archipelago when you can see interesting in shape Pancy shells.

Mafia Island

Usually I do not recommend the hotels. I will make exception for Mafia Island. I recommend Shamba Kilole Lodge: Beautiful rooms, great food and the owners make you feel like at home.


Mafia Island (“Chole Shamba”) is part of the Tanzanian Spice Islands, together with Unguja and Pemba. As one of the six districts of the Pwani Region, Mafia Island is governed from the mainland, not from the semi-autonomous region of Zanzibar, of which it has never been considered to be a part.


São Tomé and Príncipe

Rolas II


Rolas is a small island lying south of São Tomé Island, being the third largest island of São Tomé and Príncipe. It lies directly on the equator and is known for its beaches, its palm trees, its lighthouse and its beach resort. The island rises to a volcano and is linked by boat to Porto Alegre on São Tomé Island.





Matemo Island forms part of the pristine Quirimbas Islands and is located northeast of Ibo island, in northern Mozambique, about 100 km from the city of Pemba. It is approximately 24 square kilometres in area, with palm groves and beaches.
