About 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. Hell’s Gate describes the location of this grand battle, the channel between Inhaca Island and the dunes of the Santa Maria Peninsula. The ever present conflict between tides energises the atmosphere and adds to the magic of this unspoiled and mysterious place.

Machangulo Beach Lodge overlooks this magic; endless white beaches, pristine and untouched dune forests, estuaries bursting with life and eternally wide open ocean – all in an energetic harmony. Hidden away amid the dunes and hiding amongst the forests, Machangulo Beach Lodge has a warm and inviting atmosphere, keeping its guests calmly protected from the epic nature outside.

Your boat journey through the endless channels of the bay ends on the Lodge’s private beach. From here the beauty and magic become more and more real. Walkways snake through the cool forest and bring you to the Lodge’s main building, inviting you to relax and become part of the calm. Your cabin is just around the corner, and the staff of Machangulo Beach Lodge is at your service to ensure an unforgettable adventure.

Beach: Untouched beaches are right on our doorstep. We have it all - easy swimming beaches with no waves, beaches with lots of rock pools and big waves, and even plain beaches with big waves and no rocks - all of them clean and empty.

Spa: Machangulo Beach spa offers a great selection of relaxing treatments that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. A wide variety of massages, wraps, skin care treatments and more.
