Why We Love Coral Lodge

A warm-hearted, charming home-away-from-home destination where all visitors are treated like gold.

The Reff is a delightful, relaxing space complete with a designer lounge, bar area, fantastic sun deck and sparkling infinity swimming pool.

Coral Lodge is a sustainable eco-venue that uses innovative green energies and solar panels.

Fantastic activities for all ages in the astonishing nature reserve dunes, beaches and mangroves, not far from Ilha de Moçambique.

Grab a canoe or paddle board and drift into the mangroves or go kitesurfing, sailing and snorkelling in crystal clear waters.
