Hotels [edit]

Bazaruto islands have luxury hotels only, which are expensive even by European standards. However, the location is exclusive, so high prices are quire reasonable.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Maputo International Airport (MPM) or fly to Johannesburg International Airport (JNB). Next fly to Vilankulo Airport (VNX). In most cases, the flight to Vilankulo via Johannesburg will be cheaper. Next, get to your island on a small private plane or by boat. The hotel will offer you all possible transportation options.

When to go [edit]

The best time for a beach holiday in the islands of Bazaruto is a dry season from April to November. However, sea water may be rather cold during the period from June to October. Therefore, the best monthes are April-May and November.
