Bazaruto Archipelago

About Bazaruto Archipelago

The Bazaruto Archipelago is a group of 6 islands off the coast of southern Mozambique. They lie within Bazaruto National Park and are known for their white-sand beaches. Bazaruto, with dunes, is the largest island. Coral reefs around Magaruque and Santa Carolina islands protect rare marine animals, like dugongs. The wetlands, forests, and grasslands of Benguerra Island's interior are home to many bird species.

Declared a National Park in 1971, the islands include Santa Carolina, Bangué, Benguerra Island, Magaruque, and Bazaruto. The waters that lap the archipelago are filled to the brim with an array of reef fish, sea turtles, and game fish. An assortment of endangered marine life has also been documented here such as whale sharks, manta rays, leatherback turtles, humpback whales, and the very rare dugong.
