Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary

 

Photo by Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary

Vilanculos, also spelled Vilankulo, is more than a gateway to the Bazaruto National Park. Miles of white sand beaches, pristine coral reefs and over 300 species of birds have long attracted backpackers and caravaners. And with the opening of several new resorts as well as the creation of the Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary in 2001, this once sleepy village is an up-and-coming beach vacation destination in its own right. Snorkel and scuba dive in crystal clear waters. Fish for marlin, sailfish, bonito and mackerel. Take a stroll through the market and shop for local crafts. Sail to one or more of the islands in the Bazaruto Archipelago on a dhow. Practice water sports. Or simply relax on miles and miles of unspoiled beach. And if you hurry, enjoy a family beach vacation that is off-the-beaten-path.
