Squeezed between the dazzling Indian Ocean and wild African bush, Guludo Beach Lodge overlooks undoubtedly one of the best beaches in Mozambique. In the north of the Quirimbas National Park; Guludo beach lodge boasts incredible wildlife, both above and below the warm waters edge. Perfectly situated to discover these wonders, you can dive the pristine coral reefs, explore the islands, soak up the rich local culture and take in the vast African bush.
Guludo beach lodge has been built using strict ethical principles that have ensured our host communities and environment receive maximum benefit through the lodge. Guludo beach lodge has recently won an award for its innovative design, which develops on local architectural styles, using exclusively local materials guaranteeing minimal environmental impacts.
Accommodation: Watch the sun rise, burning red over Rolas Island, and the sky turn from crimson to dazzling orange through bleary eyes from the comfort of your own, extravagant king- sized bed - only the occasional monkey playing in your hammock will disturb the peace.
The spacious tented bandas give panoramic views through the netted walls, creating a feeling of being outside while inside. Raised bedrooms sit under an expansive palm-thatched roof, opening upwards and outwards to make the most of the stunning sea views and cooling sea breeze. Each of the nine tented-bandas have a quirky alfresco marbled bathroom.
Once you’ve taken your shoes off here, you won't want to put them on again until you leave.
Diving; Guludo beach lodge is perfectly positioned to dive some of the best, and most pristine, coral reefs in the world.
Opposite Guludo's calm bay is the Quirimbas Archipelago's fringing reef with breath-taking coral diversity as well as copious schools of game fish, turtles, sharks and, at the right time of year, humpback whales. With vast diving diversity Guludo offers a range of diving from sheltered tranquil coral gardens to drop-offs with strong currents
Rolas - is our most popular activity and it’s not hard to see why. Just a short sail from Guludo, this tiny island is surrounded by crystal clear waters with breath-taking reefs to snorkel and a stunning white sandy peninsular. Local legend says the island is owned by the sacred, resident coconut crabs, the largest crabs in the world, who dictate the weather and the fate of anyone who dares upset them.
During your visit to Rolas you will meet some of the Guludo fishermen who use the island as temporary base and, if you dare, go with “old man coconut crab” into the Rolas Coral Rock Forest to see some of the infamous crabs for yourself. In the middle of the island you’ll find a simple shade with a spectacular, panoramic view, perfect for whale spotting (July to September) and spying the two resident fish eagles
