andBeyond Benguerra Island
Situated on the second largest island in the sunny Bazaruto Archipelago off the coast of Mozambique, &Beyond Benguerra Island Lodge is set in a protected
marine conservation area and offers pristine beaches and unspoiled coral reefs teeming with marine life.
Looking out onto a sandy beach and set on a deep lagoon unaffected by the tides, this exclusive beach getaway is surrounded by premier diving sites, a
gateway to an underwater wonderland for divers, with a rich variety of tropical fish species complemented by Africa’s only population of the rare dugong.
The deep Mozambique Channel, which runs alongside the island, is where you can try your hand at some of the world’s best catch-and-release deep sea
fishing and fly fishing opportunities, whilst the interior of the island is a lush patchwork of forests, wetlands and fresh water lakes ideally explored
on horseback. Island expeditions will uncover traditional culture at the local village, indulgent treatments are on offer in the massage sala
and there is no better way to end your day than with a cocktail in the Dhow Bar.
Accommodation is in light and airy casinhas and cabanas with a distinct nod to both Africa and the Mozambican coastline’s Portuguese heritage. These generously sized guest rooms peep out from among the boughs of a tropical forest, offering private views onto the beach. For a truly unforgettable beach holiday, filled to the brim with various adventures, be sure to keep &Beyond Benguerra Island at the top of your list.
