More About Us


Tofo is a quaint yet stunning eight kilometer stretch of sandy beach located on the southern coast of Mozambique, filled with beautiful grassy dunes, rolling surf and all year-round sunshine. Tofo abounds with activities, from the serious to the playful, Chartered Fishing, SCUBA diving and SCUBA courses  (Some of the best diving in the world) to frolicking in the surf or sipping away at your favorite cocktail, eating Peri-Peri prawns while watching the whales cavort in their playground! You can also sit back and enjoy an easy day relaxing on the beach, praying to the Sun gods

Own Private Beach

Apart from our own local beach, where you can snorkel, and swim, both in the rock pools during high tide, or behind the rocky reef at low tide, there are two other beaches in the area, Tofo Beach, which is the main beach located right in front of the Tofo local market, and Tofinho (or little Tofo) which is a bit quieter, as long as it isn’t surf season.  Tofo Beach offers a great swimming beach, as well as being used as the boat launch area for the local diving and fishing charters.   It has an abundance of small bars and restaurants, as well as a small market where you can buy all you may need from fresh fruit and seafood to cellular airtime.   Tofinho Beach is great for surfing and fly fishing.

All Year Round

Tofo is a great destination all year round.  The summer months are from November to March, with temperatures during the day ranging between 30°C – 38°C during the day, with a humidity of around 80%. Our rainy season usually starts in late December, January and February but these are mostly tropical showers that last only part of the day.  The winter months are from April to October, with temperatures ranging around 20-25°C. Evenings may become a little cooler, so you may want to bring something a little warmer than a costume. More rain usually in late June / early July. With February and August being windy months, so avoid these if you want to do a lot of diving or deep sea fishing. 

Ocean Activities

Our diving is amongst the best in the world, offering marine life in abundance. Divers will undoubtedly see Manta’s, Whale sharks and a plethora of micro marine life not to be found anywhere else in the world, and if you listen carefully you will hear the whales while underwater. Whale Sharks are found all year round but the larger numbers are here in the summer, between November and March.  Humpback whales usually arrive around mid-June and are here until mid-October. We trust that you will enjoy your Mozambican beach holiday experience and that we will see you here again and again…See you SOON!!

Beach Bar and Resturant

Our Beach bar and Restaurant are located right on top of the Dune facing a 180 degree view of the beach, with our Cabana’s neatly tucked behind the dune. There is a large reef that runs right in front of us creating a natural rock pool that is fabulous to wallow in without having to brave the waves – and also perfectly safe for kids.  Electrical power (220V/50Hz) is supplied by generator for up to 4 hours per day.

Wonderful relaxing stay

We were looking for something off the beaten track yet comfortable, Mango beach was completely perfect. Its a little way from main Tofo so its much quieter during the evenings. The food is amazing, probably the best in Tofo. The accommodation is beautiful with the sound of the ocean and surrounding wildlife. Stefan and Paula could not be more helpful particularly getting us in and out of Tofo. Definitely recommend the beach walk into main Tofo beach area. Perfect if you like it a little rustic and enjoy the quiet. Definitely planning on heading back again!

WOW factor in spades
Mango Beach blew me away. The staff and food are amazing. Views to die for. Location, location, location. Exactly what I hoped for to experience in Tofo. Thanks



Everything awesome in one place.

The owners, stuff, food, even the trees at this rate. Went there for our honeymoon, and we were well taken care off. Everyone is friendly, made us feel at home with the way they interacted with us and served us. The food was out of this world, best tuna I’ve ever had in my life.


What a gem!

We went there twice and sent our family there too. The staff are friendly and helpful and the owners too, they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I had a crayfish the size of my forearm – the food is devine! A must if you are in Tofo!


Great food and great people!
Really worthwhile. Delightful menu and the best food we had on our 14 day trip in Mozambique.
Great pizzas. Crispy THIN base and generous toppings – a treat. My pasta was supurb with well balanced flovours. Adrie had a really great shrimp curry. The white wine was served well chilled and at a reasonable price. All in all a delightful evening in a beautiful setting. Get there before sunset to enjoy the views.
