Coral Diving in Mozambique

Mozambique’s unspoilt coastline, with picturesque white-sand beaches and pristine coral reefs, is home to some of Africa’s best diving. While Mozambique’s savannahs are home to the traditional Big Five for safarigoers - lions, leopards, elephants, African buffalo and rhinos - its rich waters conceal the Mozambique diver’s equivalent - whale sharks, manta rays, hammerhead sharks, tiger sharks and bull sharks. The presence of the marine megafauna is a testament to the rich ecosystem that thrives in the Mozambique Channel. The channel, which separates Mozambique from Madagascar, is home to the second-most diverse coral reef in the world and ensures the coral diving in Mozambique is among the best in the world.

Mozambique's coastline is dotted with idyllic islands with fine white-sand beaches, backed by palm trees, looking out across the azure waters of the channel. The Bazaruto Archipelago is a group of six islands sitting a few miles off Mozambique's southern coast, and its waters conceal an impressive mixture of big fish and beautiful soft corals.

The best-known of Mozambique's diving destinations, Tofo Beach, lies 100 miles to the south of the Bazaruto Archipelago, and though it boasts incredible big fish diving, the islands of Bazaruto, being further north and in warmer waters, offer the best coral diving in Mozambique.

Our team of diving specialists rave about the secluded beaches, the big fish action and the colourful coral diving in Mozambique and have hunted down the best hotels and dive centres in the archipelago so you can experience this epic destination in style. Allow us to tailor your dream itinerary to discover Mozambique's megafauna and its multicoloured coral reefs to be sure you get the most out of this amazing destination.
