  • Stretch your legs along the 1 km stretch of white sand beach in front of the lodge.

  • Marvel at the incredible sunsets across the ocean from the beach and rooms.

  • Experience paradise in this amazingly remote and unspoilt location on Benguerra Island

  • Try your hand at fishing in this famously prolific area.

With a breathtaking location on the dazzling sands of Bengurra Island in Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago, Azura Marlin Beach is a five-star boutique property looking out over the gin-clear waters of the Indian Ocean. A PADI Five Star dive centre, restaurant, lounge bar, pool and spa create a relaxing and indulgent escape with access to the wildlife of the island’s interior, the marine life of the ocean and the stunning beach.

The villas are spread along the coastline, each offering mesmerising views of the ocean and their light, bright interior echoes the tones of the surrounding landscape. A butler-host service allows you to sit back and relax, while the decking offers space to unwind and soak in the views. The family villa, Villa Vista, provides two bedrooms and a plunge pool for families or groups of friends.

Dine on the beach, poolside, or in the shade of the restaurant, enjoying the flavours of the sea in the fresh fish and shellfish. The bar and plenty of lounging areas invite you to unwind on a daybed, in between cooling dips in the pool. Treatments in the Marlin Beach Massage Pavilion use traditional ingredients and techniques in signature massages while a PADI dive centre and watersports centre provide the equipment that allows guests to explore the reefs and clear waters of the archipelago.

Activities at Azura Marlin Beach revolve around the beach, the ocean and the tropical interior of the island. Guests can try deep sea fishing for marlin, tuna, sailfish and barracuda on a catch and release policy, take a PADI course under the tuition of expert instructors, or slip away for a picnic on a deserted sandbar. Island hopping boat trips offer the opportunity to spot dolphins, turtles and a colourful kaleidoscope of marine life. Children and teens can enjoy their own range of specially designed activities, though there is no specific kids club.

This stylish beach resort is small enough to feel welcoming and exclusive, yet large enough to boast extensive amenities, activities and space to unwind. Its enviable location and picturesque beachside setting creates the conditions for an idyllic island escape, catering well to both couples and families.
