Look no further than Benguerra Island Lodge and its fully equipped dive center, kitted out for pro and beginner divers who can choose their diving needs. Explore renowned dive sites with dive masters if you are experienced, and see the likes of 2-Mile Reef, 5-Mile Reef and 9-Mile Reef where fish glow in the dark blue depths. It’s an adventure diving off the shores of Magaruque Island and San Sebastian then following a turtle for a while to see how it moves. Deep sea fishing trips on modern boats sporting powerful engines take eager anglers out to the big blue sea to catch marlin, barracuda, sailfish, tuna and more. 

The reefs have bounced back from overuse thanks to the conservation of the marine reserve. Maybe you will be lucky enough to spot the elusive, endangered dugong, grazing seagrasses on the seabed on your exclusive family holiday.
