Benguerra Beach Holiday

This luxurious lodge offers a fantastic blend of total relaxation and more active pursuits. Explore your idyllic surroundings with a range of land and water-based activities before unwinding with a massage and sundowner drinks on the beach.

Benguerra Beach Holiday: Summary

Benguerra Beach Holiday in a nutshell

This stylish beach holiday features a week’s stay at Benguerra Lodge, situated on its own palm-fringed bay along the western coast of Benguerra Island within a marine national park. Designed for comfort and relaxation, it is a luxurious place to unwind and works brilliantly as a stand-alone destination or as the culmination of a safari trip.

Offering a wide range of accommodation styles and sizes, the lodge has rooms to suit most different travellers, be they families, groups of friends or couples. Each room is open plan and faces out over the Indian Ocean, with breathtaking views of the sunset and the wide, sweeping horizon.

Each of the rooms has its own plunge pool, too, providing a perfect spot to read or simply sit and relax, but just a five-minute walk away along the beachfront is an activity centre where fly-fishing, snorkelling trips, diving, island-hopping tours and kayaking can be arranged. This is a great base for land activities too, and for guests wishing to explore further inland or along the coastline, horseriding and 4WD Land Rover tours are available.

Whether chosen for its quick access to a beautiful seafront, its range of activities or its luxurious design, Benguerra Lodge is a fantastic destination for those hoping to relax. Massage treatments at the spa, sundowners at an innovative dhow-shaped beach bar and excursions to learn about the endangered dugong add further variety to what is already an indulgently lovely stay.

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.
