Dugong Beach Lodge, Vilanculos, Mozambique

Dugong Beach Lodge offers a relaxed beach holiday location in a tranquil corner of subtropical Africa. This superb beach front lodge is set on the shores of the Indian Ocean, part of the Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary on the San Sebastian Peninsula. It offers affordable beach accommodation for anyone wanting to relax after a golf or safari holiday in South Africa.

Watch a short video about Dugong Beach Lodge here.

The Vilanculos Coastal Sanctuary is home to green and leatherback turtles, dolphin, manta ray, bird life and the highly endangered dugong. The sanctuary extends along the coastline over an estuary, sand dunes, freshwater lakes and mangrove swamps. Guests staying at the lodge can enjoy snorkelling, diving, fishing, bird watching and sunset cruises inside the sanctuary.

Dugong Beach Lodge offers 12 luxuriously appointed chalets with direct access to the beach via individual walkways.  The chalets are tented rooms with a thatched canopy, each built on stilts over the ocean. There are 2 additional Villas each with 2 bedrooms and a plunge pool. All rooms have outdoor showers and twin beds that can be converted to double beds to suit the guest’s wishes. Each chalet is sea facing with a private deck and day beds for relaxation and where private dinners can be enjoyed.

There is a central infinity pool with an island-style bar and martini seats where guests can enjoy spectacular views of the ocean. Activities on offer include wind surfing, kayaking, sailing, fishing snorkelling and scuba diving, as well as guided walks, and birding.

Due to the remoteness of Dugong Beach Lodge, power is obtained from a combination of solar and generator power. The generator operates for a few hours as the sun begins to set until approximately half an hour after the last guest has gone to bed. Limited essential lighting & ceiling fans can still operate after the generator has been switched off due to the solar power that has been stored.

It is possible to combine a stay at Dugong Beach 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.
