Easter is fast approaching (We can’t believe it either) which means that planning your Easter holiday is something one should start thinking about.
We know the beginning of the year is a bit of a mad rush and many of you haven’t actually settled in entirely yet so we thought we would make things slightly easier for you by narrowing your choices down and suggesting a family road trip to Mozambique. It may seem like a bit of a long haul for some but we have three of the most phenomenal upmarket resorts for you to choose from that – although are a few hours away – are still close to South Africa.
First on our list is none other than White Pearls Resort.
White Pearls Resort offers the ultimate in Beach Luxury and right on our door step. Being the closest resort (of the three on our list) to South Africa, White Pearls Resort is situated in the Southern part of Mozambique and is sure to provide you with nothing but elegant simplicity.
White Pearls Resort offers two forms of accommodation, namely, Beach pool suites that are located on the beachfront giving you direct access to the resorts’ private beach. Or you can opt for a pool suite near the sunshine deck and enjoy some down time taking in the coolness of the pool with a beach view.
Wandering what else there is for you to do at White Pearls Resort? Well, there is plenty for you to choose from.
White Pearls Resort offers unique diving experiences on one of the world’s top pinnacle reefs with a variety of dive spots ensuring there is something for everyone, from sharks to fish and even vibrant corals. If diving isn’t entirely your thing, White Pearls Resort offers ocean safari’s that allow you to snorkel to a nearby reef and take in the beauty of the glistening Bottlenose Dolphins that regularly glide through the waters. Now if you’re more of a “feet on solid ground” type of person, there are horse rides available as well that will allow you to explore the scenic natural surrounding or the resort while galloping along a bush trail, weaving through flora and fauna galore and enjoying magnificent views of the ocean from high-up view points.
