    andBeyond Benguerra Island

    AndBeyond Benguerra offers an Indian Ocean retreat, sheltered within the only protected indigenous forest on the island. The luxurious retreat features 15 suites, privately situated on the beach among swaying palm trees. The tropical chic interiors lead out onto exclusive timber decks with a daybed, rim-flow splash pool, and incredible ocean vistas. The Casa Familia is a sole-use homestead for families, privately situated on a stretch of sandy beach with plenty of room to relax, swim, play, and explore.

    &Beyond Benguerra’s WILDchild Programme takes care of your little ones with daily opportunities to explore, learn, and discover, establishing a love for the planet while having loads of fun. Days in this exclusive location offer guests the opportunity to swim with horses, snorkel colourful reefs, scuba dive, and sail the waters on a dhow as the sun sinks behind the horizon. In addition, guests can kayak, stand up paddle, take a horseback ride along the coast, or head out fishing. An island expedition will take you to explore inland lakes where crocodiles and flamingos roam. Here, you can summit a sand dune for a spectacular 360-degree view and end off the adventure with cocktails or a dip in glimmering ocean waters. Between June and August, there’s an opportunity to witness a magical wildlife spectacle as migrating whales make their way along the coast. Guests can head out on the waters for an enthralling whale-watching experience. When it’s time to relax, put your feet up beside the dhow-inspired bar, unwind on shaded lawns, enjoy pampering at the spa, or indulge in a decadent castaway picnic in a private beach setting. AndBeyond Benguerra offers visitors opportunities to learn about the Oceans Without Borders projects, giving back to the local people and surrounding marine life.
