Azura Marlin Beach is set on the southwest shores of Benguerra Island amid translucent waters flecked with dhow sails and rich in marine life - an unspoilt paradise for those seeking a haven of peace.
Azura Marlin Beach’s island location means it’s perfectly positioned to offer guests a whole range of activities and experiences within a short easy boat ride from the hotel, including sailing in traditional dhows, scaling the highest dunes during a round-the-island tour, picnics on remote sandbars, and of course deep-sea fishing (tag and release).
The crystal clear waters are perfect for scuba diving and snorkelling, as the marine life is simply spectacular. The region enjoys seasonal visits from whale sharks, manta rays and humpback whales and their calves, and loggerhead, green and hawksbill turtles are regularly seen. Other notable species include reef sharks, stingrays, devil rays and moray eels, as well as a variety of reef fish.
Azura Marlin Beach has just 10 villas nestled along one of the last undiscovered stretches of beach in the world, with all the creature comforts you could wish for, including a Mozambican butler-host to look after your every need. In addition, Villa Vista can accommodate up to 4 guests in 2 en-suite bedrooms, plus there is a private swimming pool, and a large indoor entertainment area with a bar, dining room, and a lounge with a TV.
The main public areas face out towards the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Sip at a refreshing drink at the vibey lounge bar, relax and unwind on one the comfortable four poster daybeds and explore the extensive outdoor areas nearby.
Guests can enjoy breakfasts and dinner at the main restaurant, with lunch usually served by the sparkling pool area to enjoy the sun-drenched days. Dining on the beach with your feet in the sand, and the weekly beach BBQ are a highlight of any stay here.
