Get to Know Benguerra Island

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, a few kilometres offshore from Vilanculos feels like stepping into the pages of a brochure. Dhows sail past practically deserted palm-fringed beaches (there’s only a handful of lodges on the island) which are lapped by gentle waves from a sea so calm and transparent it looks like glass.

Why Benguerra Island?

  • With only a few resorts on the island, it remains unspoilt and quiet
  • Benguerra is surprisingly easy to reach: there are flights to Vilanculos from Johannesburg and Maputo, and boat transfers from the mainland to the island’s lodges
  • Snorkellers and divers will be in marine heaven on Benguerra Island, but there are plenty of other activities if you don’t fancy going underwater

FAQs about Benguerra Island

  • The best and only time to experience the thriving Gorongosa National Park is during the dry season - which runs from April to November.
  • However, during the rainy season of December to March, the roads are closed due to flooding. Hence the park is inaccessible. The best time for bird watching is usually December to April.
