A magical Indian Ocean destination where time stands still

The spirit of Benguerra Island

An exquisite piece of paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean, Benguerra Island is a luxury beach holiday destination where time stands still and legends come to life.

Situated on the second largest island in the sunny Bazaruto Archipelago off the coast of Mozambique, the 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 ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Surrounded by premier diving sites, the lodge is the 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 renowned for its game fish and Benguerra Island offers some of the world’s best catch-and-release deep sea fishing and fly fishing opportunities.

Why we love it
  • Diving and snorkelling some of the most pristine reefs in the world
  • Thrilling deep sea and fly fishing opportunities
  • Horse riding on the beach or among the soaring sand dunes and freshwater lakes of the interior
  • Traditional dhow cruises, island expeditions, catamaran cruises and romantic castaway picnics
  • Africa’s only population of the rare and endangered dugong
The lodge

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.

The welcoming guest areas offer views of the lush tropical garden and the ocean beyond. Set deep in cleverly created patches of shade, comfortable loungers beckon set around the lodge’s rim flow swimming pool look out onto the waves.

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. After days filled with discovery, weary muscles relax and recharge under the magical attentions of the masseuses in the massage sala.
