Azura Benguerra Island

Azura Benguerra Island

Azura Benguerra Island

Azura Benguerra Island, an unspoilt island within a Marine National Park. Miles of deserted beaches with soft white sand, sparkling turquoise seas, crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade. Swaying palms, gentle breezes, sunny days and star studded nights. This is Azura Mozambique.

Azura is the area’s first luxury eco-boutique retreat. Built entirely by hand in partnership with the local community, it has just 18 villas, each with their own private pool stretching out to the Indian Ocean beyond, and designed for the ultimate undiscovered getaway.

With wonderful cuisine, friendly Mozambican service and a vast range of activities and experiences, including a unique African spa, it’s the perfect island escape. How you spend your time with them is your choice, but getting the small things right that will make the difference is theirs.

They have a fabulous wine cellar for special wine tasting events and themed dinners, and even offer a selection of the owner’s wines, especially flown in from their Chateau in the Loire Valley, France.

Their menus are based on what is fresh and available, with a focus on light meals, simple ingredients, and lots of fresh fish and seafood. It’s a simple understated affair. They always offer a choice of dishes, and their chef will happily try to accommodate any personal requests that you may have.

Activities

Water Based Activities

With the Indian Ocean on their doorstep, many of their activities and experiences are focused around it. You can snorkel or scuba dive, saltwater fly fish or big game fish, watch the sunset as you sail on their dhow, picnic in splendid isolation, explore the waters with paddleboards or cruise to deserted beaches to look for pansy shells.

Gaze at the dolphins, often spotted from their boats, or track down humpback whales on their seasonal migration past our shores. The offshore reefs are some of the most pristine on the coast of East Africa, and a joy to behold, with a plethora of marine life and amazing coral gardens.

  • Snorkelling
  • Scuba Diving
  • Big Game Fishing and Salt Water Fly Fishing
  • Beach Picnics
  • Dhow Sailing
  • Paddle Boards

Land Based Activities

Take a beach ride on the coastal area with the beach bicycles or take a Land Rover tour of the island, and experience the local culture for which Mozambique is rightly famous, as well as visiting the school which was built with donations to Azura’s Rainbow Fund.

Climb the dunes, some of which are scattered with the remnants of ancient Arab pottery. Visit the island’s lakes and spot a crocodile or two. Discover the local fauna and flora. Take a long walk and they will meet you with a picnic. Or join one of their star gazing events and lie back and listen to the ancient African stories that chart the cosmos.

The whole of Africa is soccer mad. On Benguerra Island they have an Island League made up of teams from the hotels and local island teams. This is a really important event amongst the local community and great pride is at stake. Come and support Azura’s soccer team at one of their matches on the weekend.
