Dhow Sailing & Picnic
@ Marlin Lodge

The local way of travel for any Mozambican is done via the colourful dhow, a traditional handmade craft used for fishing and island travel.

Marlin Lodge supports the local island people by hiring these dhows and their experienced crew, thereby introducing their culture to guests and providing a livelihood to locals.

Dhow sunset cruises around Flamingo Bay in front of Marlin Lodge are extremely popular and for guests who stay two nights or more, the dhow cruise is a gift from Marlin Lodge.


Marlin Lodge's picnic trips give our guests the opportunity to picnic on surrounding shell-speckled islands and stroll along a number of pristine beaches. You have the choice of a number of settings – with South Point, North Point and Pansy Island being just a few of them.

Our chefs pack a scrumptious picnic basket filled with small island delights, and a cooler packed with soft-dinks and other selected beverages. A choice of a table and umbrella, or blankets and pillows and an umbrella can be included.

Enjoy an afternoon of unspoilt privacy while taking in the splendour of the island surroundings.
