Come dive with us

We know why Azura Benguerra is the best island holiday resort in Africa, let alone Mozambique: because it is spectacular in every way – the rooms, the food, the diving, the people. You may have dived all over the world, but this is one of the best scuba diving adventures on record –  a classy operation run exceedingly well.

The PADI 5-star dive operation is owned and operated by the resort and you may be lucky enough to have the entire boat to yourselves. Using Scuba Pro equipment and assisted by attentive staff, the diving is great. Find Azura in part of a marine park where a lot of your diving takes place along Two-Mile Reef where marine life is incredibly dense and varied.

Romance and exclusivity

From the moment you catch the flight into Vilanculos, you can already get a sense of how spectacular and different your island experience is going to be. It is so special to see the dunes peeping out from the turquoise waters as you soar over Benguerra Island and later, you will be snorkelling in that “swimming pool” in the middle of the sea.  Romantic, exclusive and superb!

Discover beautiful spacious villas right on the beach, set a few metres back because the plunge pool is between your bedroom and the ocean. Enjoy both indoor and outdoor showers pumping jets of hot water onto your sunbathed body. Then settle onto large, comfy beds and get ready for another meal in paradise. The food is amazing.

Food, glorious food

From large breakfast buffets to extensive lunches offering several choices of fish or meat and delicious desserts, you finally get to dinner. Four beautifully prepared and presented courses including starters, excellent soups, then fish, lamb, lobster, or other meats – vegetarians will always get tasty food choices and desserts are a real treat that simply must be sampled.  Try dinner on the on the beach in the sand for a real treat.
