Bazaruto, Mozambique

Benguerra Island in Mozambique is the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago, which broke away from the mainland thousands of years ago. The island is approximately 55 square kilometers, and lies 14km offshore.

Benguerra Island is the smaller of the two inhabited islands and home to two of the dreamiest beach lodges. Azura Benguerra and &Beyond Benguerra. Access to the island is super easy, via a 2-hour flight to Vilanculos from Johannesburg. You’ll then take another short fixed-wing or helicopter flight to the island, which can make it a little more expensive than staying on the mainland, but not by much. From East Africa, access would still be via Johannesburg – simply fly down from Nairobi or Dar es Salaam for the flight to Vilanculos.
