Fantastic Ilha

I have had a wonderful holiday on Ilha de Mozambique. It may be a little inconvenient to get to the island when you land at the airport in Nampula but there are several ways to reach the island and it is worth the trouble . On the island I found a small s ...

Ilha das Cobras

Superb experience on Ilha das Cobras

Pete and Gail organised very good activities on Ilha de Mozambique: kayak tours, themed tours of the island on foot or by bike and camping on nearby islands. We went on Ilha das Cobras (or ilha sena) with them for two days. The organisation was excellen ...

Great island, great tour

Wow! I can really recommend this! The island is just breath-taking! We did a bike tour with a local guide, which was so good that we decided to take a kayak tour too! I'd never kayaked before, but really enjoyed the experience - great local guide and the ...

The best experience ever!

I spent a couple of months in Ilha and soon I met Peter and Gail. The fun, happy, extremely friendly couple soon became my greatest friends there. Ilha by itself is a fantastic place. I travelled through 50 different countries and I have never seen a plac ...

Ilha Bike Tour

A true local experience

My partner and I were lucky enough to do this tour when the company was first setting up. What impressed us most was the true local feel of the company. Pete and Gail have worked in linguistics and community development in remote Australia for a many year ...

The best experience

This was my first trip to Mozambique and my friend took me to this Island. I've traveled to many Caribbean islands and did not know what to expect. I met Peter on my first night on the island and convinced him to take my friend and myself out on his kayak ...

Fabulous tours and friendly people

I spent a few weeks travelling through Mozambique and when in Ilha de Mozambique came across Gail and Peter at Ilha Blue. Such a friendly and helpful couple. I went on the most incredible kayak trip with Peter through mangroves and local areas and we mana ...

An amazing experience and great people

Well, I feel a little unoriginal giving Ilha Blue a 5-star review, since it seems everyone else has the same sentiment. But it's five stars well deserved. I stayed on Mozambique for 10 days at the end of August, and one of the best finds on the island was ...

Ilha das Cobras overnight trip with Ilha Blue

This trip with Ilha Blue is an amazing experience - you get to spend the night on an uninhabited island (Ilha das Cobras or Ilha da Sena) just off the coast of Ilha de Moçambique. There is an incredibly gorgeous lagoon that you can explore with the kayaks ...

Great fun kayaking in Ilha das Cobras

It was great fun for slightly more than 24 hours. The kayaking on the lagoons was laid back, and that on the open sea through the high waves was very exciting. The weather was good. The tour leaders were friendly. And the food was really good - almost wor ...

Magical Ilha das Cobras – moonlit majesty

I was lucky enough to embark on the overnight trip to Ilha das Cobras on my recent trip to Mozambique which I would have to say was a major highlight of my entire trip! We set out in perfect weather, sailing along the historical shoreline of Ilha de Mozam ...

Best way to discover paradise

My partner and I stayed in Ilha for about a week and did three of Ilha Blue's fabulous tours. As well as being lots of fun, they were all highly educational, perfectly organised and gave us a real chance to get to know our local guides. The best thing you ...

Cycling Tour

It was very nice to rent a bicycle to explore Ilha, which is not something usual in Mozambique. The Ilha Blue people are very nice and have a great business plan by offering tourists some more active forms for getting to know (Ilha de) Mozambique and help ...

Ilha das Cobras

I recently went on a trip out to Ilha das Cobras just off Mozambique Island. I had a brilliant time. The organisers were professional and fun, the local captain and guides were very experienced and friendly. The trip was great as we were able to go to a p ...
