Ibo Island Lodge, Ibo Island

Stand on the battlement, beside the ancient cannons, and stare out over the glittering Indian Ocean. If you let your imagination drift, you’ll hear the cacophony of voices and see the fort’s defenders running to and fro as a pirate ship heaves into view.

Despite its vivid history, its tree forts, its old colonial administrative buildings and its mysterious Stone Town, Ibo Island is today one of the most tranquil, relaxing and welcoming islands in the entire Quirimbas Archipelago - itself a nominated Word Heritage site. And Ibo Island Lodge reflects the island perfectly, with its 100 year-old colonial-style architecture, its panoramic sea views and its deserted white beaches. Welcome to an island that combines history, tropical mangrove forests and a seashore to sigh for.
