Where I stayed
Was the torture really worth it? As we stroll along the powdered white sands through crystal clear water with the coconut trees hanging overhead, it's really not a difficult question to answer.
It's not quite paradise, we've learnt that the real thing is never quite as amazing as what you might see in the brochures and admittedly, it is quite a trek, via boat, to get to these paradisesque locations but if you were to combine the beautiful aspects that are here with that of the islands in lake Malawi, you wouldn't be too far off.
Visiting the Bazaruto islands allowed us to once again swim with the tropical fish that you would ordinarily only have the chance to see in an aunties fishtank. Unlike Sinai, we didn't find Nemo but we did see some very colourful fishes amongst the coral reefs.
White sand and a crystal clear Indian ocean aside, stopping in Vilankulos has allowed us the opportunity of a rare rest so far in Mozambique... and it certainly is a special feeling being able to sleep in until the outrageous hour of six in the morning.
Probably best we don't get too used to this...
