Machangulo Beach Lodge



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 center 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 busting with life and eternally wide open ocean - all in energetic harmony.
