Machangulo Beach Lodge, situated on the Southern Mozambican coastline plays host to a unique battle between the open Indian Ocean and the estuaries of Maputo Bay. Hell’s Gate describes the location of this grand battle, the channel between Inhaca Island and the dunes of the Santa Maria Peninsula. The ever present conflict between tides energises the atmosphere and adds to the magic of this unspoiled and mysterious place.

Machangulo Beach Lodge overlooks endless white beaches, pristine and untouched dune forests, estuaries bursting with life and eternally wide open ocean. Hidden away amid the dunes and hiding amongst the forests, Machangulo Beach Lodge has a warm and inviting atmosphere, keeping its guests calmly protected from the epic nature outside.

Attractive wooden boardwalks link all of the chalets and villas to the main lodge and beach where guests can escape the fantastic fury of the complex environment. Sit around the boma fireplace or in the main lounge where views dominate.

Your boat journey through the endless channels of the bay ends on the Lodge’s private beach. From here the beauty and magic become more and more real. Walkways snake through the cool forest and bring you to the Lodge’s main building, inviting you to relax and become part of the calm. Your cabin is just around the corner, and the staff of Machangulo Beach Lodge is at your service to ensure an unforgettable adventure.
