Quilalea Island Weather
Mozambique has an enviable climate, and is perfect for a beach holiday in the sunshine. Azura at Quilalea has a ‘humid tropical’ climate, making it hot year round, with long sunny days and temperatures generally in the low to mid 30′s celsius for much of the year. Temperatures rarely fall below 24 degrees even at night. The water temperature is gloriously warm year round, and ranges from 26-30 degrees plus.
The East African trade winds do bring some welcome cooling breezes, north easterly from November to March (Kaskazi), which also brings the chance of some showers, and the slightly stronger but dry south easterly trade wind from May to September (Kusi). Our villas are positioned to take best advantage of these natural breezes and seasons.
The Islands, with their low-lying offshore locations, are not strongly affected by local weather patterns, and weather on site can be very different from the mainland forecast. They tend to receive on average a quarter of the rainfall that the mainland does, and there can be several months of the year when there is no rain at all. This makes our landscape very arid, and challenges our water supply, but usually makes our guests very happy!
