Dugong Beach Resort

Beach Perfect: Mozambique's Tropical Retreat

Sailing, sunbathing or spectacular safari?

Dugong Beach Lodge offers tranquility and unspoiled paradise in a safari style lodge.This intimate beach hideaway is situated on the southern coast of Mozambique, within 30,000 secluded hectares of pristine marine and wildlife territory in the Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary.It's remote, it's secluded and it's the perfect combination of beach and bush.

This is the place to kick off your shoes and take barefoot strolls on a deserted island; one of the only sites in the world to see the rare, lion-resembling dugong wallowing in the surrounding waters.

It's the spot to enjoy sun-fuelled days lolling on a perfect beach and evenings spent sipping cocktails, looking at the stars. A short, daily flight from Johannesburg via Pelican Air, it's the ideal destination for family getaways, corporate management meetings and intimate beach retreats.

The exclusive Dugong Beach Lodge, a Legend Lodges, Hotels & Resorts property, recently reopened following a complete renovation sparked by the destruction of Cyclone Flavio.

“While disastrous and unforeseen, the damage wrought by the cyclone provided us with the perfect opportunity to rebuild the resort and get the property up to the high standards of all our Legend-owned properties, providing our guests with the ultimate relaxing beach holiday experience,” says Mart Cilliers, marketing director for the Legend group.

The first thing you notice as you disembark from your boat ride to Dugong Beach Lodge, across the clear water bay from Vilanculos, is the inter-flowing swimming pool with an island-style bar and Martini seats with views of the ocean.
The accommodation itself is all sea-facing, with air conditioning, private decks, plunge pools, outdoor showers and daybeds – perfect for those private dinners or in-room spa treatments.

 It's easy to see why they flock here: the romantic; the adventurer; those in need of family time and the corporate traveler seeking a tropical sanctuary in which to hide away and unwind.

But Dugong Beach Lodge is much, much more than your average beach holiday experience. Don't miss the opportunity to explore the protected Vilanculos Wildlife Sanctuary. Once your batteries are recharged, discover para sailing; bird watching; kayaking and dolphin and whale watching. The Lodge boasts snorkeling activities; dhow cruises and trips to nearby desert islands and Little Legends activity programmes for children.

This secluded corner of sub tropical Africa is one of the few remaining, unspoilt areas along the coast. In short, it is paradise on the East African seaboard.
