Dining & Bars
Our aim is for you to never eat in the same place twice. At Azura, dining is all part of the experience, from breakfast at the water’s edge, to a picnic on a remote sand island, to dining on a candle lit beach beneath the stars and romantic private dinners at your villa. Our Butler-hosts take huge pride in their innovative dining set-ups, and little touches to make your stay special.
We have a fabulous wine cellar for special wine tasting events and themed dinners, and even offer a selection of the owner’s wines, especially flown in from their Chateau in the Loire Valley, France.
Our menus are based on what is fresh and available, with a focus on light meals, simple ingredients, and lots of fresh fish and seafood. It’s a simple understated affair. We always offer a choice of dishes, and our chef will happily try to accommodate any personal requests that you may have.
Entertainment & Sports
Water Based Activities
With the Indian Ocean on our doorstep, many of our activities and experiences are focused around it. You can snorkel or scuba dive, saltwater fly fish or big game fish, watch the sunset as you sail on our dhow, picnic in splendid isolation, or cruise to deserted beaches to look for pansy shells.
Gaze at the dolphins, often spotted from our boats, or track down humpback whales on their seasonal migration past our shores. The offshore reefs are some of the most pristine on the coast of East Africa, and a joy to behold, with a plethora of marine life and amazing coral gardens.
Snorkelling is done at the spectacular Two Mile reef where there are hundreds of species of tropical fish, coral, rays, invertebrates as well as the possibility of seeing one of the various species of turtle that inhabit the national park. Humpback whales are often seen in season (May-Oct) as they pass on their annual migration. When out on the boats sightings of dolphin are common and if you are lucky, the highly endangered gentle giants of the area, the dugong may make an appearance too.
You can learn to dive at our Padi 5 Star dive centre with all new Scubapro equipment. A full range of instructional courses from discover scuba upwards (Padi MSDT Instructor) is available and Azura has a dedicated watersports centre with dive training pool. The archipelago offers varied and interesting reefs with several species of turtle, dolphins, shark, pelagics, moray eels, eagle rays and a wonderful array of reef fish and corals.
Big Game Fishing and Salt Water Fly Fishing
Try your hand at fishing, the waters off Azura offer a variety of reef and big game fish for beginners and advanced alike. Some of the world’s best fishing for Marlin, Sailfish and Tuna is done here and Giant Trevally (GT) up to 50kg is a speciality year round. Azura has a fully equipped fishing boat and we have a tag and release policy at Azura.
Beach picnics are part of the signature activities at Azura. Deserted sand banks that can only be accessed at low tide or North Point, a remote location on the tip of a sand spit off the top of Benguerra Island are the kind of locations Azura guests can enjoy. Idyllic locations, with bleached white sand that is coated with Pansy shells or sand dollars, and is surrounded by crystal blue turquoise waters.
A time honoured tradition in African waters, set sail in a traditional Mozambican Dhow sailboat, and watch the sunset as you drift along on the ocean breezes.
