WANT PRIVACY, PEACEFUL SURROUNDINGS AND AND THE SOUND OF THE SEA. COME AND UNWIND at Macaneta Blue Beach Retreat. Located 35 km North of Maputo in the prime area of “Macaneta Island”. Cross the new bridge and find yourself in the midst of quiet unspoiled beaches and a unique bush environment nested in the dunes.

These exclusive contemporary beach retreats offer premium access to the beach, being only 50 meter away. Each studio has an open-plan living consisting of a sleeping area with a double bed and a quality mosquito net. An en-suite bathroom, a mini kitchenette corner with a hot plate, bar fridge and cutlery as well an outside area with braai and a dining table. Each unit has aswell an outdoor shower. Above houses 2 and 3 are viewing decks overlooking the ocean. Ask our staff to assist you with local fish. Should you not want to cook, the island offers several excellent restaurants near by. The retreats are only accessible by 4x4 or at least a bakkie type as there is a short sandy area to access the place.

The accommodation is just like the pictures, we had a lovely stay here even though we started the holiday by getting stuck in the sand- lol that was our own fault by not bringing 4x4s, definitely was needed. The locals were also so very helpful.A special thanks and appreciation for Titus, we would have been lost without this amazing man assisting us with anything and everything we needed to know and required.Alex and Ernest were also very helpful and prompt with their assistance.Overall beautifully located accommodation with the beach literally a stroll away, sleeping at night and hearing the...

We Loved staying with Macaneta Blue Beach Retreat. Alex is an exceptional host and he is willing to go to any lengths for his guests.It is only a few meters from the Beach!Lovely cabin and deck with a view of the sea.

We stayed for four days over Christmas, and it was one of the best four day holidays we have ever had (and trust me we are avid travellers)! House no 2 where we stayed was incredible - stunning sea views from the roof - did a skottel breakfast on the deck each morning, then a stones throw away from the beach to enjoy endless hours in the warmest ocean - wow, wow, wow! We had everything we need in the chalet - Alex helpful initially and then did not really check on us again to see if we had loo paper etc but all good! Will definitely go back!

Thank you very much for a great introduction to Mozambique. The accommodation is really close to the beach, which was fantastic.Unfortunately the promised "sea view" could only be obtained by climbing on the "roof" with no shade, so we didn't utilize that and we also did not have cups or mugs in the room and would have appreciated being advised prior to our arrival.Alex was extremely helpful, thank you.I would advise visitors to obtain prices of products before purchasing or at least mention a maximum amount you would be willing to pay for something when the locals assist you with shopping.

Kick back with an ice cold 2M beer at the beachfront Coconuts Bar in Complexo Palmeiras. Here you can watch DSTV or play a game of snooker.
