&Beyond Benguerra Island

This is the ideal romantic location for a traveller that wants to unwind. A short flight away from South Africa, &Beyond Benguerra Island is in a truly serene setting. Whether you want to explore the island, or lounge on the beach, this hotel will ensure that you can enjoy your surroundings in the most luxurious way.


Benguerra Island is the second largest in the Bazaruto Archipelago, off Mozambique. With pristine beaches and a wealth of wildlife, including the rare African Dugong there are a variety of marine activities on offer.

The hotel is ideally situated to explore the dunes, local villages or the island’s interior. Alternatively you can relax on the private beach and while the hours away.


The 10 casinhas and 2 cabanas are nestled into the lush forest behind the beach, so each commands stunning views of the ocean. The thatched rooves yet hand painted tiles and Portuguese appointments see the perfect fusion of cultures, meaning a thoroughly exotic and and truly sumptuous stay. For larger groups or families, we recommend the Casa Familia with its own private swimming pool and veranda.


Simply put, there’s something for everyone and all in an idyllic setting. The hotel offers candlelit dinners on the beach or even secluded ‘castaway picnics’. And with a wealth of other activities such as Dhow cruises or swimming with horses you will feel fully immersed in island life.
