Azura is a beautiful, new beach lodge on Benguerra Island – the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago. Amazing attention to detail has gone into the construction of this boutique island retreat, giving you a good slice of barefoot luxury at its best.
15 thatched villas are positioned along an incredible stretch of sand, lapped by Mozambique’s turquoise waters. The surrounding ocean forms part of a national park and offers exceptional snorkelling and scuba-diving (Azura has a gold rated PADI dive centre), as well as catch-and-release deep sea fishing.
However, possibly one of the best things to do, is absolutely nothing. Settle onto the plump cushions shaded by thatched beachside salas, and watch dhows sail by on the translucent sea.
Azura is the country’s first luxury eco-boutique retreat. Built in partnership with the local community, the owners are passionate about the environment and actively involved in a number of exciting projects which they’ll happily tell you about.
