Dunes de Dovela Eco Lodge
Mozambique, Inhambane Coastline

Dunes de Dovela Eco Lodge is the perfect eco-friendly Mozambique beach lodge, located halfway between Maputo and Vilankulos and 90km South of Inhambane.

Why We Love it and You Will Too

  • Various accommodation options cater to those seeking luxury as well as those keen on a bit of adventure.
  • The pristine Manhame Beach is located only 5 metres walking distance from your private bungalow or dome-style tent.
  • Meander over to the Chope village and meet the locals for an added dose of cultural insight.
  • Watch the humpback whales frolic from your private deck. They can best be seen breaching, lop-tailing and fin slapping between June and October.
  • There's surfing, kayaking, fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving.
  • We love that there's a real home-away-from-home feeling here.
  • It's just the kind of place to spend your afternoons relaxing on the daybed with an ice-cold 2M beer in hand.

Your Dunes de Dovela Eco Lodge Experience

Set between Maputo and Vilankulos, Dunes de Dovela offers sweeping views over the Inhambane coastline, lined with undulating dunes and lush coastal forests.

This understated, stylish beach hideaway blends in so subtly with its surrounds that you might miss it at first glance. This Mozambique getaway was constructed with the help of the local community over four years of hard work, which has indeed paid off. 

As an eco-friendly, self-sufficient Mozambique beach lodge, Dunes de Dovela generates its own electricity through a generator. The generator is switched off at night and replaced by charming lanterns, which illuminate the trails leading to your room. Even the water comes fresh from a deep borehole nearby. 

The warm and friendly service paired with the delightful meals (a mix of French and Portuguese) prepared at the on-site French restaurant, adds to the harmonious ambience of this Mozambique beach lodge. If you can pull yourself away from all of it, take a stroll down to the beach, snorkel in hand, and take to the rocky reefs in search of those colourful underwater creatures. Back on land, the nearby coastal forest is also full of life, and well-marked nature trails will bring you closer to small mammals (antelopes, monkeys, bushbabies, mongooses), birds, butterflies, insects, indigenous trees and flowers.

While staying at Dunes de Dovela, you can also meander over to Dongane and Dovela village to meet some of the locals. Alternatively, spend your time on the terrace, watching for dolphins, and humpback whales (seen from June to October).
