Part of the Querimba Archipelago, Ibo Island lies off the north-east coast, surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Blazing sunrises blanket the sky as traditional fishing dhows sail out in search of their daily catch. Ambling through the ancient and narrow streets allows visitors to meet the friendly people of Mozambique. In historic times, Ibo Island, it was an important Portuguese trading post. Historic buildings, three forts, and a beautiful old Catholic Church still remain. Ibo provides a chance to interact with the amazing rural people and exchange cultural differences. Traditional silversmiths still operate from the main fort, and you can wander about this beautiful island and explore.
