The Bazaruto Archipelago is situated 10 to 15 km offshore between Vilankulo and Inhassoro and consists of five islands; Bazaruto, Benguerra, Magaruque, Santa Carolina and Bangue. These islands and surrounding waters constitute the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park.
Bazaruto is the largest island in the archipelago with towering dunes and islands lakes, frequented by water birds. The south point of the island, Ponta Dundo offers a spectacular view of the achipelago from the summit of the dunes.

Two-Mile Reef is situated off the eastern shoreline of Benguerra and offers great snorkeling and diving opportunities.

a t-shirt whilst snorkelling in summer.
