andBeyond Benguerra Island

Benguerra Island is a quick helicopter ride away off the coast of Mozambique. This getaway is unique and it’s surrounded by interesting beaches with highly fluctuating tides. The aerial view is incredible. The lodge consists of a series of beachfront “casinhas” or mini villas  guestrooms. The property is beautifully designed with Portuguese style furnishings and island architecture.
