Mantis and Moon Backpackers Lodge

Welcome to paradise!

Get lost in the private jungle of Mantis and Moon, not even a 5 min walk from the blue flag beach, and experience the warm welcome of the Mantis and Moon family.

At Mantis and Moon, our friendly dynamic, local and international volunteers can’t wait to meet you! We too are travelers, nomads, adventurists, dudes and dudettes who love the sun!

By day, you may see us surf, paint, expand our knowledge, fix and build or cook up a big delicious meal.

By night, we sip tea, juice or beer next to the exotic rock pool, while global story tellers share their adventures, lessons and tales of our own lives with people like you.


When it’s time for bed, get comfortable in our cozy accommodation. Each as unique as the next.


The fun never stops, at Mantis and Moon! With our endless selection of activities, both on and off site, the words "I'm bored" will never be heard.
