With a collection of offshore islands, fascinating cultures and a sublime coastline, Mozambique is ideal for romance — perfect for honeymoons and special occasions with a loved one. Go on safari in Gorongosa National Park, or experience the spectacular scenery of the Niassa Reserve. But, what Mozambique is best known for is its beautiful white sand beaches. Swim with whale sharks off the coast, or visit the Quirimbas Archipelago where you can enjoy fishing or diving in the island’s blue seas.
