About Us

Fire Island Eco Retreats was established in 2021, inspired by a passion for eco-friendly luxury travel, nature conservation, and philanthropy. It all started with a small island off the northern coast of Mozambique, nestled in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, named “Ilha do Fogo“. Portuguese for Fire Island. Initially acquired with the intention of building an eco-resort in this small slice of heaven, our owners quickly realised that this island was a nesting and breeding site for endangered green and hawksbill turtles and was rife with poachers.

Our Ethos

This decision shaped our company ethos to provide eco-friendly, sustainable luxury travel, while preserving natural plant and animal habitats at our Fire Island Eco Retreat properties, and supporting local communities through philanthropic programs. We have intentionally curated bespoke travel packages for you to enjoy at each of our awe-inspiring Fire Island Eco Retreat properties. We strive to bring you closer to the natural world and introduce you to breathtaking locations you may never have known to exist before. Each of our bespoke properties is in an area with rich, unique, and highly diverse ecosystems.
