There is a large tidal difference on Benguerra Island and this affects most island life. Some activities are only possible during low tide and access to the ocean for swimming is much deeper at high tide. As the shoreline moves with the tides, it creates an incredibly beautiful and changing landscape. So go snorkelling to see underwater sights that take your breath away.

It is Bazaruto Hotels like these two that make your Mozambique holiday on Benguerra Island so worthwhile. Can you imagine waking every morning to a crimson sunrise, flat blue sea and pure silence?
