The Archipelago is also renowned as Africa’s most productive area for black, blue and striped marlin, with black marlin catches coming in at a staggering 1000 pounds, while kingfish, queenfish, barracuda, mackerel and yellowfin tuna are just a few more of the delights in store with fishing in Mozambique.

Coral Garden

Coral Garden

One of the greatest allures of Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort & Spa is its secluded location in the breathtaking Bazaruto Archipelago. To ensure that this precious marine environment is conserved long into the future, and in line with Anantara’s focus on protecting nature and working alongside local communities, the resort is proudly engaging in a sustainable coral gardening initiative that is the first project of its kind, in co-operation with the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park.

The Bazaruto Archipelago National Park boasts a stunning array of marine diversity. From the rare dugong to the smallest crustacean and beautiful coral reefs, this paradise is an ocean enthusiast’s dream come true. Dedicated to conserving the amazing biodiversity, the Activities Team at Anantara Bazaruto Island Resort & Spa is actively involved in the development of conservation initiatives to preserve valuable coastal resources, while encouraging the sustainable development of local marine ambassadors.

Anantara’s coral gardening initiative will provide guests with a unique and enriching experience in seeing this remarkable project unfold.
