Benguerra is the second biggest island in the entire Bazaruto Archipelago and it’s geographically interesting as it used to be a part of the mainland thousands of years ago. Today, it’s one of the most sought after beach destinations in Mozambique and a great part of the world for a honeymoon in Africa.
The Archipelago main attraction is its extensive coral reefs, which lie in crystal-clear water warmed by the Mozambique Current. In addition to the array of dazzling and oddly shaped fish that inhabit the coral gardens, marine turtles, humpback whales and three species of dolphin are frequent visitors. The islands are also renowned for their challenging game fishing, with marlin, barracuda and various sailfish among the more alluring targets for anglers.
