Azura, Benguerra Island

A table set just for you, beneath a white umbrella on a deserted beach. Even if you’re not a romantic, you could easily fall for Azura Benguerra Island.

You’re staying on a deserted island so perfect it fits everyone’s image of the castaway’s tropical haven. If you were to be shipwrecked, this is the place to be beached. Miles of fine white sand arch away along a shoreline of ultramarine sea. On the horizon, white-sailed dhows ply their trade. Palm trees provide shade and a background whisper of branches swaying in the cooling breeze. In short, this is the ultimate destination on your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Mozambique.

Especially as the resort itself is exclusive and supremely comfortable. The experience is unforgettable. The villas all have their own pools and the beach is but a few steps away. The cuisine, meanwhile, is an irresistible combination of fresh seafood, regional specialities and contemporary delights.
