andBeyond Benguerra Island
Your holiday begins with a 10-minute helicopter transfer, flying low over the blues of the Indian Ocean. A warm welcome on landing sets you up for your stay at Benguerra, the second largest island in Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago, Here you can spend your holiday in barefoot luxury: snorkelling, diving, dining on freshly-caught seafood, and relaxing on your hanging daybed on a beautiful crescent of white sandy beach.
andBeyond Benguerra Island has 10 casinhas, 2 cabanas and the 3-bedroom Casa Familia (perfect for families of friends!). Interiors are lights and airy, with wooden shutters opening out to the Indian Ocean. Cool off in your private plunge pool or outdoor shower, decorated with hand painted tiles. Your butler can fetch you your favourite drink, organise a romantic dinner for two on your private deck or toes-in-the-sand dining right on the beach.
The island falls within a marine conservation area, and the coral reefs really are amazing! Go snorkelling off Paradise Island (you may even see a rare dugong!) or scuba diving at Two Mile Reef. There’s phenomenal deep-sea fishing (catch-and-release), horse riding, island drives, sunset dhow cruises – and the castaway picnics are a must for any couple! In the evenings, swap stories with other guests over sunset drinks at the colourful Dhow Bar.
