andBeyond Benguerra Island


Part of the Mozambique Safari & African Safari Collection

An exquisite piece of paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean, andBeyond Benguerra Island is a magical destination where time stands still and legends come to life. Here authentic African character and charm blend with echoes of distant history in a lodge that cherishes the simplicity of tradition, while celebrating the Arabic influence of its past. Quaint casitas overlook silver sands lapped by turquoise waters where rare dugong call to life ancient tales of mermaids and mariners.

An idyllic mix of white-sand beaches, azure water, reefs teeming with fish, perfect sunsets that look like they've been Photoshopped and gorgeous luxury lodges make Benguerra one of Mozambique's most alluring destinations.

If you've ever dreamed of a beach holiday on a tropical island, Benguerra is probably what your fantasy would look like. Landing on the shores of the second-largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago of Mozambique, a few kilometres offshore from Vilanculos, feels like stepping into the pages of a brochure. Dhows sail past practically deserted palm-fringed beaches which are lapped by gentle waves from a sea so calm and transparent it looks like glass.
