Mozambique is a wonderful, under-discovered tourist destination. Discovered by Vasco da Gama in 1498, it was a Portuguese colony for almost 500 years, becoming independent in 1975. Now, with civil strife a thing of the past, more and more travellers are seeking cheap flights to Mozambique to take in all of its bounty.

With 2,500km of coastline on the Indian Ocean, the turquoise waters are just heaven for diving, snorkelling, fishing and sailing.

Bustling Maputo, the capital, has a Mediterranean/African vibe with colonial-era buildings, botanical gardens, and an art museum. The colonial era capital was Ilha de Mozambique, a tiny island and Unesco World Heritage site. Reached by bridge from the mainland, it has a mix of Portuguese and Muslim architecture, and fort that dates back to 1522.

For barefoot luxury, head to the Quirimbas archipelago in Northern Mozambique. A string of 32 coral islands teeming with marine life, the southernmost 11 are included in the Quirimbas National Park. Quirimba Island with its sugar-soft and palm-fringed beaches is the place to go for a secluded and exclusive holiday.

To the south, the Bazaruto Archipelago is a protected national park; five islands with no tourist infrastructure, just as nature intended.
