Welcome To Morrungulo Beach LodgeMorrungulo, a long-established holiday resort (originally started in the late 1960′s), is located in a prime setting and on a stunning stretch of unspoiled coastline. It is a safe swimming beach. We are one of the very few lodges that is right ON the beach and not behind dunes or a distance away from the sea like many other camps. Set within a huge grove of coconut trees it provides lawned and well shaded camp sites and chalet facilities – step straight onto beautiful white squeaky clean sand and paddle out into the crystal clear ocean. This has been voted as one of the best beaches in the Inhambane area. If you are dreaming of a Robinson Crusoe type getaway this is the place to be with beautiful sea views, balmy evenings and romantic moon rises, cloudless skies, fresh lobster and pristine beaches.
