An exquisite piece of Indian Ocean paradise, Benguerra Island is a luxury beach holiday destination where time stands still. Situated off the coast of Mozambique within the protected marine reserve of the Bazaruto Archipelago National Park, this island hideaway is set on a protected lagoon. The lodge has a range of luxurious thatched accommodation to choose from. For families or small groups, the exclusive-use Casa Familia is an ideal option with three ensuite bedrooms, a large deck area and private pool overlooking the beach. Alternatively, set amidst lush island forest, there are two cosy cabanas, ideal for couples or honeymooners, or the slightly larger casinhas. Cabanas and casinhas all offer private timber decks, rim-flow pools, sun loungers and private salas with irresistible hanging daybeds. Whilst here, there is an abundance of activities on your doorstep to enjoy. Disappear for an afternoon picnic on a castaway island. The team will ferry you by catamaran to your chosen point on the north or south of the island and leave you there for a blissful time of total seclusion. Or, take a sunset cruise around the bay in a dhow, a traditional wooden sailing vessel with a triangular sail, used by the island’s locals – a unique window on the everyday world of the island’s fishermen. Toast the end of another unforgettable day as you watch the setting sun colour the sea gold. Finally, calling divers of all abilities. Situated within a protected marine conservation area and surrounded by premier diving sites such as the main dive site at Two Mile Reef, this is a scuba diver’s paradise. A fully equipped dive centre offers a full range of exciting diving adventures to suit every guest.
