SCUBA and Snorkeling

Tofo is world famous for the various reefs nearby and the superb diving sites. See Giant Manta, Whale Sharks, sea turtles and a whole underwater wonder-world, some of it not for the faint-hearted.

There are 4 Scuba operators in the area, all very professional with friendly and enthusiastic Dive Masters and Instructors.

Snorkeling in the area is great – you can do a little bit off our rock reef here at Mango Beach, but for serious snorkeler’s, an Ocean Safari with one of the scuba companies is FANTASTIC – a possible drop off with the whale sharks so you can swim with them – an experience of a life time.

Mangroves, Fishing, Surfing…

Another very popular activity is the kayaking trips on the Inhambane lagoon.  There are two types: mangrove tours and a full day island trip.  The mangrove tour takes you into the mangrove system – great for bird watchers, while the island trip takes you back into time to experience traditional Mozambican hospitality, their food and a sailing trip on a dhow.  On most days the local surf spot at Tofinho is pumping with a great point break – no need to bring your board, simply rent one, or if you don’t feel like getting wet, let us arrange a leisurely trip along our deserted beach on horseback.

Markets and Shopping

Or just take a relaxing and leisurely stroll along the beach to our local Tofo market, where you will find everything from local eateries offering Peri-Peri prawns on a skewer, wooden arts and crafts, craft wearing apparel, or even top up on pre-paid airtime.


Whale Watching

An experience never to be forgotten
