Though it’s not surprising to see tropical beach destinations rise in popularity during the winter, it’s notable that Bazaruto Island in Mozambique is this week’s most popular destination for #WhereToGoWednesday. When we set out to create TripTuner, we wanted to help travelers find places in tune with their interests – both near and far, familiar and unknown. To have such a remote destination top the charts this week tells us that we’re succeeding in shedding light on lesser-known locales.
Bazaruto (part of the eponymous archipelago) is a remote gem of sweeping golden-white sand dunes, surrounded by deep indigo waters of the Indian Ocean, just a boat ride away from the popular coastal town of Vilankulo. South African travelers have known about this part of the world for awhile, but Bazaruto Island remains largely unspoiled, with just a handful of luxe places to stay like Indigo Bay Island Resort & Spa and the Bazaruto Lodge.
