Whilst each of the rooms has its own plunge pool, providing a perfect spot to read or simply sit and relax, there is an activity centre a 5 minute walk along the beachfront from where fly-fishing, snorkelling trips, diving, island hopping tours and kayaking can be arranged.

Benguerra Lodge

Days 1-7

Benguerra Lodge, on the western coast of Mozambique's Benguerra Island, is positioned on its own beautiful palm-fringed bay about a kilometre down the beach from Azura. The lodge was recently taken over by a top safari operator who knows how to deliver luxury and high quality. We have not seen it since they refurbished it, though we know that they replaced the traditional north African design with a more contemporary beachy look.
