Why we think you’ll love it

  • A remote and wild island with only one option of an Aman luxury tented camp.
  • Close to wildlife with monkeys bouncing on your tent and deer roaming free.
  • One of the best house reefs we have seen with beautiful coral, sharks, sea snakes and more.

Our Guide to Moyo Island Diving Holidays

The remote Moyo Island encompasses some 2,500 acres and hosts a number of small villages, with a total population of only 2,000.

The diving sites around Moyo are very good and the coral very healthy. The area hosts some incredible underwater biodiversity, and the water is wonderfully clear. Whether you choose diving on the reefs close to the shore, or at more distant sites, you will find pristine conditions, and few other divers.

It's impossible to see everything during a short stay on Moyo Island. It's so easy to become so entranced by the reef that all the larger life may well be swimming just behind you. Manta ray, green and hawksbill turtle, sunfish, sailfish, whale shark…they are all here, so seeing them is just a matter of luck. Luck aside, you are guaranteed serene diving in wonderfully clear water with no one else in sight, just some amazing sea life.

In the mornings, the monkeys visit with their babies and play about on the roof of your tent. Trampolining is always good fun at any age!
