andBeyond Benguerra Island

Inhambane Province, Benguerra Island, Mozambique

An idyllic luxury island getaway, Benguerra Island lies sheltered within a canopy of indigenous casuarina pine forest, which opens up to panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. Looking out onto the calm waters of a secluded bay, the lodge boasts soft, shimmering beach sands, as well as a deep channel that cuts straight out to sea, allowing for swimming right off the beach even at low tide and permitting direct boat access. Magnificent marine marvels wait in the ocean waters, from mystical dugong to bejewelled tropical fish and mighty marlin and kingfish that delight an angler’s heart.

Light and airy, spacious casinhas and cabanas combine tropical chic with a distinct touch of Africa and the Mozambican coastline’s Portuguese heritage. Wide doors and windows allow for magnificent ocean views and private rim flow pools set on wide wooden decks provide a cool refuge. Colourfully ornamented, a traditional wooden dhow has found its final resting place on the beach, offering the ideal spot to indulge in an ice cold cocktail or a delicious meal of fresh, fragrant seafood. Local sailing boats carry you out to sea on dhow cruises and the billowing dunes and soft sands invite you to explore the marvels of this extraordinary island. After days filled with discovery, weary muscles relax and recharge under the magical attentions of the masseuses in the massage sala.
