Welcome To Morrungulo Beach Lodge
Morrungulo, a long-established holiday resort, 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. There is EASY beach access to a pristine beach. 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 and there are few lodges that offer lawn and shade similar to what we have. 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. A perfect holiday setting for families.
The resort caters for families, individuals, deep sea and surf fishermen, scuba divers and snorkelers, or spend your days just relaxing and soaking up the sun on palm-fringed beaches. The camp rests under swaying coconut palms on the shores of the tropical Indian Ocean. It has extensive green lawns and lush gardens throughout the camp, shady indigenous trees, fresh drinking water and good security.
Campers have the use of clean, tiled ablution facilities with gas geyser showers and flushing toilets.
