COMMUNITY EMPOWERING TOURISM

NATIONAL PARK AND CONSERVATION
Ibo Island also boasts much more than historical importance. Easily one of the most un-spoilt destinations on the planet, Ibo also falls within the newly created Quirimbas National Park. Beyond the warm turquoise waters inhabited by turtles and tropical fish, the ocean around Ibo is also home to dolphins, whales and the shy and mysterious dugong.
