You'd be hard pushed to find a more pristine paradise. More interesting than Mauritius, more beautiful than the Seychelles and less crowded than the Maldives, Mozambique piques the interest of beach-loving adventurers seeking a winter or spring escape. The emergence of a handful of high-end, low-impact island hotels (the epitome of rustic chic), together with the renaissance of the capital Maputo (established by the Portugese in the 1700s who were attracted by rumours of pearls), and efforts to resurrect the country's wildlife reserves, are a huge step forward for a country which has undeniably had a rough ride.
