Family Jumping During Mozambican Sunset On The Beach

When travelling with slightly older children, learning to dive in Mozambique can be an excellent family bonding activity. Azura Lodge in Benguerra Island has a PADI 5-star dive centre with a dedicated dive training pool. Snorkelling is also offered with some beautiful guided trips available.

Accommodation at Machangulo Beach Lodge is suitable for a family of four. Each room can accommodate a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 12.
