Cruises from Ibo Island

Ibo Island (pop. 3,000) is one of the 32 Quirimbas Islands in the Indian Ocean off northern Mozambique. Its principal town is Vila do Ibo. The island grew as a Muslim trading port, and was one of the most ancient settlements in Mozambique. As early as 600 AD Arab traders had set up fortified trading posts along the coastline. Vasco da Gama reportedly rested on the island in 1502.

The island was fortified in 1609 by the Portuguese, and in the late 18th C Portuguese colonialists built the Forts of São João Batista (1791) and San Antonio that still survive. The town was a centre for slave and ivory trade, and became the second most important in the region after Mozambique Island.
