As off the beaten track beaches go, the mainland coast of Mozambique is very firmly on the list. It’s impossible to get here without several flights, and quite often a fairly long drive too. However, for those in search of peace, authenticity and beauty, this would be a difficult spot to beat. These utterly unspoilt tropical beaches are broken only by the occasional fishing village and offer the kind of rural, beach-side idyll that most travellers can only dream about. There are just a couple of small, personal lodges to stay in here- Coral Lodge for a boutique feel, and Nuarro for those that want a laid-back eco-lodge.
