Sure Travel Hotel Recommendation: Flamingo Bay Water Lodge, situated in a tropical tidal estuary along the Inhambane coast. This eco-paradise derives its name from the flocks of flamingo that inhabit the lagoon, and even the rare dugong can be spotted here. Beautifully appointed over water chalets give you the feel of the Maldives, at half the price. Each chalet is separated by wooden walkways ensuring privacy and no kids under the age of 12 are permitted at the resort making it an ideal tranquil honeymoon option.
