About Macaneta Blue Beach Retreat

MACANETA BLUE IS A PEACEFUL PLACE. SURROUNDED BY DUNES AND THE SOUND OF THE SEA. COME AND UNWIND at this 3 Beach Retreats. 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. Our approach is quite different from the busy camps by offering three individual quiet and peaceful studios for couples. 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. Retreat 1 is a one bedroom cottage which can accommodate 4 people. Retreat 2 and 3 are studios which can sleep 2 each and Above 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. If you don t have a 4x4 you can park at my bigger houses parking (50 metres away). Hope to see you there.

What a wonderful place, very quiet, safe and relaxing. Not a commercialised lodge which makes it perfect for unwinding and relaxing.

The island is a great getaway. Quiet environment away from the city. Had the change to see how Maputo looks and would like to go back to explore Xai Xai. The cabins could do with serious improvement. There was only one spoon , one knife and one fork available. No teaspoons at all. The fridge door did not seal properly so no cold stuff. The place was invested with cockroaches. The net over the bed was very dirty. No Security or outside shower as advertised. I would rather go stay at another establishment but the island is very nice for a long weekend get away.
