Machangulo Beach Lodge

Accommodation in Maputo

Star Rating:0

Untamed and untouched, the Southern Mozambican coastline plays host to a unique battle between the open Indian Ocean and the estuaries of Maputo Bay. Machangulo Beach Lodge is located at the centre of this grand battle, the channel between Inhaca Island and the dunes of the Santa Maria Peninsula. The ever present conflict between tides energizes the atmosphere and adds to the magic of this unspoiled and mysterious place.

The Lodge overlooks this magic; endless white beaches, pristine and untouched dune forests, estuaries bursting with life and eternally wide open ocean – all in an energetic harmony. Hidden away amid the dunes and hiding amongst the forests, Machangulo Beach Lodge has a warm and inviting atmosphere, keeping its guests calmly protected from the epic nature outside. Your boat journey through the endless channels of the bay ends on the Lodge’s secluded beach. From here the beauty and magic will become more and more real. Walkways snake through the cool forest and bring you to the Lodge’s main building, inviting you to relax and become part of the calm. Your cabin is just around the corner and the staff of Machangulo Beach Lodge is at your service to ensure the adventure you’ve been hoping for…
