Diving, snorkelling and walking -wow
Being part of the Marine National Park which makes the island a diver’s ultimate destination. This could qualify as Activity Number 1. The surrounding sea boasts long expanses of pristine sandy beaches, coastal sea grass beds,offshore coral reefs and large stocks of pelagic fish. Dolphins are frequent visitors to the beach plus whales migrate seasonally past these shores.

There is a large tidal difference on the island of Benguerra and this affects most island life. Some activities require low tides and at high tide access to the ocean for swimming is much deeper. As the coastline moves with the tides, it creates an extremely beautiful and changing landscape. So snorkelling takes the medal as Activity Number 2 – explore the world below for sights that will take your breath away. 

Activity Number 3 will see you taking walks on the island to bring Mother Nature close: look for the fresh water lakes, home to fish, crocodiles and migratory birds. Watch the graceful Flamingos and explore swamps and remnant forests , concealing an array of mammals and birds. The lengthy beaches alone offer idyllic walks in the sun, the sea lapping your feet.
