Imagine an unspoilt island within a Marine National Park, deserted beaches of pure white sand that extend for miles, sparkling turquoise seas crisscrossed by local dhows plying their trade, sunny days and star studded night and you have Azura at Benguerra Island off southern Mozambique.
A kaleidoscope of colour greets you above and below the ocean. Magnificent reefs for diving and snorkelling, home to the turtles that nest on the island’s outer shores, migrating whales, dolphins, and the elusive and protected dugong ply these waters, along with marlin, sailfish and tuna to tempt the sports fishermen. On land, towering sand dunes give way to indigenous bush abundant with local flora and fauna, an interesting variety of birdlife, as well as the odd crocodile or two at the lakes. The island’s local people make for fascinating cultural encounters, and the starry night sky is quite magnificent to behold.
There are 16 one, two or three bedroom villas all furnished in afro-contemporary style and look out over a stunning infinity pool towards the beach and sea beyond. Air-conditioning and fans, king size bed with down duvets, Egyptian cotton sheets, and oversize mosquito net (some can be configured as a twin), bathroom with feature shower, dressing area, and separate toilet, outdoor his and hers showers, Mozambican Butler-host service, mini bar and tea/coffee making facilities, large private undercover deck and beachside sala.
