Vamizi Island, Quirimbas Archipelago, Mozambique

Vamizi Island is undeniably a stunner – lauded for its natural beauty and superlative diving around Neptune’s Arm, with 13 impossibly-romantic timber villas loosely strung along one of the world's most beautiful beaches.

Unquestionably a Crusoe fantasist’s dream come true, ​ Seven miles of white-on-white sand so soft it feels like icing sugar under your feet are yours, and pretty much yours alone, save for the odd turtle or lodge guest.

Out at sea a whole other world awaits: the calm seas are crystal clear and the diving over the multi-coloured reefs is world-class. This is where the South Equatorial Current splits, creating conditions ripe for one of the world's most rewarding underwater experiences.

​Just steps from the beach, 13 one- and two-bedroom timber villas pepper the coral shoreline, all decked out in the coolest of colour schemes. Each opens onto sensational ocean views and an open-air terrace is there for you to relax simply and catch the cooling sea breeze.

Of course the emphasis here is very much on unadulterated relaxation: think castaway picnics, superlative diving and superb spa treatments. As the sun sets, head for the lantern-lit dining room for cocktails and the freshest seafood to round off yet another day in paradise.
