One of the most stunning features of Villa Robal is its location. Nestled at the tip of the Machangulo Peninsula, right atop a dune, this spacious three-bedroom villa offers breathtaking panoramic views: the Indian Ocean to the right, the Bay of Maputo to the left, and Inhaca Island straight ahead.

Villa Robal was designed and built with great love and respect for its surrounding wilderness and community. It combines the luxury and comfort of a private villa and pool with an exclusive and adventurous location, offering a unique holiday getaway experience. You can relax by the pool and take in the views, or venture out on an adventure to explore this magnificent and secluded part of Africa.

The beautiful Machangulo Peninsula is located in the southernmost part of Mozambique. This coastline is part of a marine reserve that protects marine life and endangered turtles. It is bordered by the calm bay to the west, the Indian Ocean to the east, the Maputo Elephant Reserve to the south, and the Inhaca Island Marine Reserve to the north.
