Perched on the Mozambique mainland south of Nacala, Coral Lodge awaits. Not only does the hotel offer wild white beaches, mangrove swamps and coral rock sand dunes but so too is it a short 10 minutes from Ilha de Mozambique.
Visitors to this part of Mozambique will, therefore, indulge in the natural beauty of the place plus the fascinating history and culture of days long ago. Settle yourself into one of the 10 sea or lagoon facing villas and plan a holiday you will never forget.
Grab a cultural tour to one of the nearby villages to meet the friendly Macua people and learn more about the way they live and eat. A hop and a jump away, Ilha de Mozambique still looks as it did more than 300 years ago. San Sebastian Fort (1558AD) is reminiscent of a bygone era. Professional guides will enlighten you about the trading that went on and the reasons why it was called Ilha de Mozambique.
When Vasco da Gama arrived in 1498, he called the island Ilha de Mocambique, after the entire country. Today this island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site!
The design of Coral Lodge blends into the unspoilt nature reserve around it, complementing and respecting the fauna and flora found there. You will feel right at home from the minute you arrive and your room steward offers you top service.
Enjoy your outdoor shower, tea and coffee station, air conditioning, private bar and laptop with internet access in your lovely timber villa decorated with textiles that reflect the vivid colours of the area.
After a few days playing in this idyllic playground make sure you venture across the sea to the Quirimbas Archipelago where a choice of dreamy islands offer you elegant accommodation and Mozambique beauty.
Ibo Island Lodge will add to your experience of the meeting of cultures between centuries – from way back then to now. Way back then, Ibo Island was conquered and crossed by many – like a turbulent fairy tale. The Portuguese left Ibo in 1975, and very little development has happened on the island since.
