&Beyond Benguerra Island Has Opened Its Doors

June 1, 2015 Southern Africa Bush Tails

The much anticipated unveiling of &Beyond Benguerra Island is finally here. Today, we welcome our first guests into a world of luxury island living. Guests can now experience sensational accommodation, in the form of light and airy casinhas and cabanas, and languid hours spent on silky white pristine beaches. With a distinct nod to both Africa and the Mozambican coastline’s Portuguese heritage, &Beyond Benguerra Island is undoubtedly the most exclusive destination in the Bazaruto Archipelago.


Boasting the island’s best location and situated alongside a permanent deep water channel, the generously sized guest rooms peep out from among the boughs of a tropical forest, offering private views onto the beach. In keeping with the trend for multi-generational travel, the lodge’s private villa has been redesigned as the Casa Familia, a three-bedroom suite ideal for families.

For a truly unforgettable beach holiday, filled to the brim with various adventures such as scuba diving, snorkelling, romantic sandbar picnics, gentle dhow cruises, horse riding and catch-and-release fishing, be sure to keep &Beyond Benguerra Island at the top of your list.
