Bask in the sun at Benguerra Island

Lush forests spill out onto pearly sands and into the effervescent waters of a marine conservation area on Mozambique’s Bazaruto archipelago. Here, &Beyond Benguerra Island invites guests to languidly spend their days in a tropical Indian Ocean paradise, feasting on delights from the sea and relishing in their postcard-perfect surroundings. 

Benguerra Island is the second-largest in the archipelago. The interior of the island is interwoven with wetlands, forest and freshwater lakes, and surrounded by a halo of palm-fringed beaches. Enveloped by premier diving sites, the waters promise sightings of tropical fish and Africa’s only population of the rare dugong. The island’s pristine beaches edge onto a lagoon unaffected by tides, making its waters ideal for gentle wading and lazy snorkels. 

Blending with the surrounding pine forest, the lodge has direct boat access to the beach. Its casinhas and cabanas are a marriage of traditional Mozambican and Portuguese architecture and conceal four-poster beds and spacious bathrooms. The aroma of sizzling seafood wafts through the air at the outdoor dining area while weary muscles can be softly kneaded into submission at the massage sala.
