Relax in the casual elegance where a relaxed atmosphere awaits you on the northwest coast of the Benguerra Island in the Bazaruto Archipelago. Azura is Mozambique’s first eco-boutique style luxury resort. Particular attention has been paid to the construction of this magnificent lodge, which offers a lot of luxury that you can feel with your bare feet.
All thanks to its location on a stunning stretch of sandy beach lapped by turquoise waters. Azura offers many water fun-filled activities, which can turn your vacation into an unforgettable experience.
The surrounding ocean is part of a national park, which offers exceptional snorkeling and diving services. Azura has a certified PADI dive center that offers deep-sea fishing in the high seas.
However, one of the best things to do is absolutely nothing, as you can just sit on the shady pillows of Salas on the beach and watch the dhows navigate in the clear sea
