An exquisite piece of paradise in the middle of the Indian Ocean, &Beyond 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. The second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, &Beyond Benguerra Island offers pristine beaches, unspoiled coral reefs teeming with marine life and excellent catch and release fishing opportunities. Simple, yet elegant, ten casitas and two cabanas are tucked into a shady forest on the edge of a pristine beach. Private decks boast cool plunge pools and sheltered gazebos. Spacious bedrooms include ensuite bathrooms and open air showers, while casitas also offer a generous private lounge.
