Benguerra Island Lodge

Set on the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, AndBeyond’s Benguerra Lodge Island offers pristine beaches, unspoiled coral reefs teeming with marine life, and excellent 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 plunge pools and sheltered gazebos. Spacious bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms and open-air showers, while casitas also offer a generous private lounge.

Activities include diving and snorkeling through some of the most pristine reefs in the world, deep sea fishing and saltwater fly fishing, exploring the island’s soaring sand dunes and freshwater lakes, traditional dhow cruises, island expeditions and walks, bird-watching, local village tours, and castaways picnics.

This property was just recently taken over by &Beyond and we have no doubt that they will bring it up to their excellent levels of service and style, both of which we felt were somewhat lacking in the previous incarnation of this property. Given these changes, the only remaining downside is that we feel the casitas are a bit close together.
