Massinga Beach

Mozambique

In the Inhambane Province of Mozambique, Massinga Beach sits above a stretch of endless, remarkably private beach overlooking the azure Indian Ocean. Far from the hustle and bustle of city life and offering barefoot luxury, the lodge caters for honeymooners, romantics and families (no children under 6). A Beach Bar and Pool nestled right at the edge of the warm sea provide comfort and drinks to sun lovers. Nearby the boulders that have been artistically chiselled by the elements, provide a unique feature and shade for secluded picnics.

Comfort is a priority in one of the 16 Ocean Front Deluxe rooms that were designed for Romantics! The 12 Ocean View Chalets, also with unimpeded views of the sea,are designed with families in mind. In season, you can even view whales frolicking from your own deck whilst sipping exotic cocktails. Later, the night sky lights up and you feel like reaching out to catch the falling stars. Massinga Beach offers guests the opportunity to experience the splendour of Mozambique in a truly luxurious setting.
