Where dreams
meet sand and sea


Machangulo Peninsula Mozambique

Leatherback Beach Villa is the sister property of Loggerhead Beach Villa and The Monarch. It is ideally located along the private, tranquil coastline of Machangulo Peninsula, Mozambique. If you can envisage the ultimate, luxury beach vacation, Leatherback Beach Villa will be the serene image that appears to mind.


Add to your vision lounging by our private pool, with a classic Mozambican Rum & Raspberry in hand. Or exploring the captivating coastline and wondrous marine life, plunging into the translucent, turquoise Indian Ocean, to discover a magical kingdom of corals, fish, turtles and more, while snorkelling.


Our villa is within walking distance of a delightful little bay called Ponto Abril. With snorkelling gear in hand, enjoy a beautiful walk along the beach to the bay, where a recent yacht wreck serves as an artificial reef, attracting incredible marine species. It is also a fantastic spot for surfing.


The villa itself offers a wonderful, nurturing area. Soak up the African sunshine at the exclusive pool area, and treasure evenings spent in the boma, where family bonds are reawakened while enjoying delicious meals around the fire, prepared and delivered by our attentive team.
