About Azura Benguerra

Azura Benguerra is the first environmentally friendly resort in Mozambique and was built by the local community. Located on a private island in the region of southern Mozambique, Azura Benguerra is a gorgeous boutique escape offering uninterrupted views of the surrounding ocean, sand dunes, palm forests, and tropical vistas. Azura Benguerra is perfect for honeymooners, families, and friends, and offers a selection of luxury sea-facing villas.

There are also numerous spots to relax and unwind including the vibey Star Bar, a fine dining restaurant, and a wine cellar offering guests a selection of the owner’s wines – specially flown in from their Chateau in France. The boutique hotel also has a media room for guests who want to watch TV and get internet access, a boutique at reception, and a Padi 5-star dive center with the best Scubapro equipment.

Azura Benguerra Setting

Located on the Eastern side of Southern Africa, Mozambique is often considered the continent’s best-kept secret. With over 2,500km of unspoilt tropical islands and a ruggedly beautiful coastline, this country offers world-class coral reefs, primed for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and sunset sailing. It is a place of ‘barefoot luxury’ that offers an off-the-beaten-track feeling that is also steeped in a rich history and tangible culture, away from the crowds!

While the whole country is known for its scenic beauty and abundant natural attractions, perhaps the most popular region of Mozambique for tourism is the southern area – especially for lovers of the ocean and an island-like tropical climate. When visiting Azura Benguerra Island, guests can enjoy activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, sunset dhow cruises, guided nature walks, cultural encounters, beach relaxation, spa treatments, water sports, private picnics, and sunset cocktails.

  • Magical Island Stay

    We celebrated a frien'ds wedding at Azura. The place is lovely and the staff members made our visit even better. The views are breathtaking. We took part in a few activities and we loved it. The guides were so well informed and very caring throughout our activity sessions. The food and and the rooms were also amazing. I loved it there!
