Meet new friends in the beach bar, a renovated, colourful old wooden dhow right on the beach, sipping cocktails as the sun sets golden into the horizon. Beach picnics are first prize while a massage in the breezy spa sala makes your day.
This is an intimate island lodge, is &Beyond Benguerra, where only 10 larger casinhas and 2 cosy cabanas offer lavish accommodation complete with private decks, plunge pools and incredible hanging daybeds on the beach. They have been overhauled to create refuges from the heat, their Portuguese-African themes restful and enlivening at the same time. Set off from here on island-hopping joy trips, snorkelling and diving safaris or sunset sundowner cruises on Catamaran yachts.
A tropical paradise tucked into a lush indigenous forest and looking out onto a picturesque crescent of sandy beach, &Beyond Benguerra Island is the quintessential luxury island retreat. All villas promise large windows with dark wooden shutters gazing out towards the Indian Ocean, while bathrooms feature generous tubs big enough for two, and al fresco showers decorated with hand-painted tiles.
Woven hammocks invite guests to an afternoon siesta, lulled by a chorus of songbirds that make the forest canopy their home. Starlit dinners under a dreamy gazebo or dinners in the stylish dining area are more sociable.
Not far off, in its own secluded garden and mere metres from the beach, the Casa Familia private villa boasts three ensuite bedrooms, a private swimming pool on a sheltered wooden veranda and wonderful lounge and dining areas for your family or friends.
