Loggerhead Beach Villa is one of only a handful of privately owned estates, nestled in the natural dunes, along the coast of the beautiful Machangulo Private Reserve. Our villa offers you a chance to luxuriate in superior surrounds, while our amicable villa team cater for your every creature comfort. We also provide for the adventurous souls, and a variety of activities are available both at the villa and further afield.
The beach is mere meters away from the villa, for lazy sunset walks, or we can supply you with fat bikes for a unique and fun way to experience the long stretch of Machangulo’s sandy coast. If you’re enticed by the warm Indian Ocean, we offer kayaks, snorkelling gear and surfboards. Nearby activity centres provide whale watching, kite-surfing and deep-sea fishing experiences. There’s plenty of entertainment in our private game room, where you can enjoy table tennis, darts, pool, and a fully stocked bar.
The quaint village of Santa Maria is just a short ride from the villa, and is captivating with its local culture. From there, you can take a boat ride to the nearby Inhaca Island, to spend the day scuba diving, snorkelling or fishing. A romantic cruise on the 24-foot catamaran is the perfect way to experience the entrancing Mozambique sunsets. End the day by savouring a local cocktail or beer, at Bemugi’s Bar.
The abundance of the biodiversity surrounding the villa is enrapturing, and best experienced on foot. You can truly appreciate the wonder of nature by hiking through the natural forest, to discover a myriad of birdlife, butterflies, small buck, and many other creatures. Miles of unspoiled coast are periodically visited by dugongs, humpback whales, Southern right whales, dolphins, vulnerable loggerhead turtles, and other awe-inspiring animals. For an exceptional African bush experience, private game drives can be arranged, where big game such as elephant, buffalo, hippo, giraffe and a range of buck species will leave you filled with wonder.
