Marlin Lodge, Benguerra Island, Mozambique

Marlin Lodge is situated on the southwest shore of Benguerra Island, the second largest island in the Bazaruto Archipelago off the coast of Mozambique. This unspoilt area offers some of the finest scuba diving sites and some of the best deep-sea fishing in the world. This tranquil location is ideal for a safari and beach honeymoon, the perfect spot to relax, at the end of your special holiday.

The lodge comprises of 19 chalets - all built on stilts with wooden decks, reed walls and thatched roofs. All the rooms are connected by elevated walkways from the back and are en suite with their own private veranda and a wooden walkway leading down to the beach directly in front of each unit. 

The lodge also offers a swimming pool, beautiful recreation areas, and a friendly atmosphere where guests can choose to be involved in activities or be as secluded and private as they want. This makes Marlin ideal for both families travelling as well as honeymoon couples looking for a few days escape. Wonderful palm trees and indigenous gardens surround the whole lodge, and the sea views are spectacular. 

The water temperature ranges between 25C and 28C. This makes outings of scuba diving and snorkelling combined with a picnic lunch on one of the many beautiful island beach locations very popular. Other activities include ocean-ski paddling, windsurfing, hobie cat sailing and island drives.

Marlin's 19 en-suite chalets stretch along the beach of Flamingo Bay. Each sea-facing chalet has a private patio with a walkway down to the sandy white beach. The wood-reed-and-thatch chalets are a blend of elegance and African Island beauty. The chalets all have a lounge area, fan and are air conditioned.

Experienced chefs prepare dinners, consisting of a wide array of seafood specialties. Meals are either served in the main dining area or on the beach in front of the lodge, where a wonderful selection of seafood is prepared over open fires.

Marlin Lodge accepts children of all ages.

It is possible to combine a stay at Marlin Lodge or other hotels in the area with a safari holiday in neighbouring South Africa. There are direct flights connecting Vilanculos with the Kruger National Park making it an ideal safari and beach combination.
