Highlights: Beachfront locations, close to all top attractions
Destination: Tofo and Tofinho Beach, Inhambane, Mozambique
You'll find basic beach cottages that are furnished and self-contained with places to eat and drink nearby, plus numerous water sport operators on your doorstep. This Tofo self-catering accommodation in Mozambique provides the perfect base to explore the open beaches and warm Indian Ocean waters.
The beaches of Tofo and Tofinho are further round the bay from Inhambane, the capital of Inhambane Province which is north of Maputo. You can enjoy a wonderful holiday atmosphere here amongst regular visitors, who come year after year, and also backpackers from near and far. Tofinho is slightly south of Tofo toward the headland, so surfing and fishing are firm favourites at this spot.
In Tofo, you can swim, scuba dive and snorkel at every opportunity. The reefs are good for fishing also. For something different you could take a Dhow trip (Arab sailing ship) around the bay and along the coastline or stroll around the colourful markets. Fresh food, including seafood, arrives daily, so you'll always get something interesting for dinner.
