Our Take

The Bazaruto archipelago in Mozambique is truly spectacular. A string of 6 tropical islands with swaying palm trees and white sandy beaches, surrounded by azure water. The largest of the islands is Bazaruto itself, which is home to the luxurious Anantara Resort. For families, honeymoons or just plain beach holiday bliss, its heaven. We have fished this area many times over the years and are always amazed at the number of species available and how many of those there are. Many world record Blue and Black Marlin have been landed on the drop offs. Sailfish move past the islands in numbers with Tuna and King Mackerel very common in season. GT’s and Blue Fin Trevally patrol the ledges and a number of the smaller Kingfish can be taken on light spinners or fly. On the northern tip of Bazaruto casting poppers and spoons from the sand spit on the right tide is well worth a shot. All round, if you’re looking for a superb island holiday with great fishing options, look no further.
