Azura Quilalea is a private, uninhabited island in the Quirimbas Archipelago, surrounded by the pristine waters of a marine sanctuary – a paradise for lovers of marine life, snorkeling, and scuba diving.


  • SA Airlink offers 5 weekly flights from Johannesburg to Pemba International Airport, and LAM offers twice weekly flights from Nairobi and 3x weekly flights from Dar Es Salaam (require an overnight in Pemba, which the Azura team is happy to arrange in conjunctions with your island reservations). Guests are met by a member of the Azura Quilalea team at Pemba and brought to the helicopter for the 25 minutes flight to Quilalea Island.


  • The 4 Kaskazi villas are open-plan and spacious, with stylish décor of wood, cotton and natural materials such as rope, pebbles, and rattan, blending in seamlessly with the island surroundings.  Each one features a spacious bathroom, outdoor shower, beach sala, private under cover deck with a day bed, and a sundeck with loungers.
  • The 4 Kusi Villas have been beautifully revamped in that subtle yet stunning Azura way, with spacious bathrooms, natural furnishings, and pure African elegance. Kusi Villas have the premium locations, with an additional outdoor shower and beach sala. Each Kusi Villa now features a private plunge pool.
  • The cliff-top Villa Quilalea offers the most astounding accommodation for a couple in the whole Quirimbas Archipelago, located on its own private part of the island where guests can enjoy magnificent views over the turquoise seas with dhows sailing by. Guests can access the ocean from their own cliff top step-ladder, leading into a private alcove with a small beach at low tide, and immediate swimming and snorkeling at high tide.
