Benguerra Island, Mozambique
Thousands of years ago, Benguerra Island broke away from mainland Mozambique -- today, its miles of unspoiled white beaches stand ready to greet you. Enjoy a private beach picnic with the warm turquoise waters of the Mozambique Channel as your soothing companion. Then explore the island’s remarkable coral reefs brimming with trumpetfish, bluespotted rays and more -- plus the island’s forests, lakes and treetop sanctuaries, home to 140 bird species. Come nightfall, relax under the coconut palm trees at Benguerra Lodge, where freshly caught seafood, spiced with Portuguese flavors, is your reward.
