Two Mile is a barrier reef protecting a narrow channel between the high sand dunes on the south of Bazaruto Island and the long, white beaches of the North Point of Benguerra Island. The north tip of the reef is mid-way between the islands and runs southwards, parallel to Benguerra Island, approximately 4.5 kilometers east of its shore. The top of the reef protrudes from the sea at low tide, and slopes gently towards the east. It is well known for its excellent snorkeling sites inside the reef such as the Aquarium, as well as for a host of exciting dives on the seaward side. These dives sites have alluring names such as The Arches, Shark Point, North Point, The Boulders, Surgeon Rock, The Drop-off, Cathedral and The Gap.
The flat-topped reef is carved with exciting gullies, which curve out from the shallows towards the deeper areas and each bend in the gully gives the divers a feeling of anticipation of what's around the corner. The reef has a colorful diversity of hard and soft corals, anemone fish hide in their swaying homes and there are numerous schools of brightly colored reef fish such as coachman, fusilier, snapper and surgeon. Schools of large pelagic and reef fish also frequent the area and you may encounter potato bass; kingfish; barracuda; guitar fish; devil, manta and honeycomb rays. Large moray eels lurk in their rocky hideouts and black tip reef sharks often put in an appearance. The wonderful whale sharks and numerous turtles are a welcome site to all divers. Shy dugongs are in the area and are sometimes seen from the boat, but count yourself extremely lucky to see one whilst diving. Two Mile is an excellent dive site for all levels of divers.

It is neither 2 miles long nor 2 miles away from Vilanculos, but it is the name that has been given to the reef lying outside Benguerra Island and Bazaruto. 2 Mile is also our most popular dive location. The site is actually a long barrier reef that breaks the water at low tide and can be dived at various depths down to around 20 meters. Due to its length there are numerous dive locations offering many different environments, swim throughs and coral outcrops. There is a great chance of seeing one of the 5 species of turtle that live in the area along with a friendly reef shark or skulking nurse shark. There is a wide abundance of reef fish, such as long tail banners, Surgeon, Moorish Idols, Parrot, Angel and Butterfly fish to name but a few. Game fish and Devil rays regularly swim in from the blue and there is always a chance of seeing that elusive Dugong.
