Family beach holidays in Mozambique
Mozambique impresses with pristine beaches and excellent marine wildlife. Therefore it's a worthwhile destination for family beach holidays with older children who can enjoy water-based activities and experience the Mozambican culture. However, parents with small children should bear in mind that the country is malarial.
There isn't a vast choice of child-friendly accommodation for family holidays in Mozambique. This is due to the general lack of infrastructure in the interior of the country and a rather adult atmosphere at many of Mozambique's beach lodges, clearly aiming at honeymooners and couples.
That said, for fairly active families, ideally with slightly older children, who enjoy watersports and are interested in marine life, family beach holidays to Mozambique can be great. To get a taste of adventure, there's even the option to spend your family holidays in Mozambique on an exclusively booked dhow, a traditional sailing boat!
