Benguerra Island, Mozambique
TEL: 27-767-050599

On a powdery stretch of tiny Benguerra Island, 14 miles from the mainland, this resort pulls out all the stops: private plunge pools and dedicated butlers; a head chef imported from England’s Michelin three-starred Fat Duck. But as the first carbon-neutral property in Mozambique, the Azura is also eco-vigilant, with 15 thatch-fringed villas handmade from trees felled by past cyclones. Snorkel with the resident marine biologist, then visit the nearby school, one of the resort’s gifts to the local community.
