Enjoy the private and secluded unspoilt beach, the bay a perfect spot for snorkelling, fishing, surfing and swimming. If however, you prefer not to get sand between your toes, lounge on the deck next to the pool sipping a cocktail just meters away from the bar and dining room. The Ponta Mamoli Dive centre offers wonderful snorkelling and diving expeditions with 10 reefs within 8km’s. The dive sites are some of the best in the world. The coral is untouched and in excellent condition, the fish life abundant. Swimming with dolphins and whales is also an option at certain times and for those inclined Ponta Mamoli now offers Deep Sea Fishing. The bay is also a favourite for salt-water fly-fishing. Land based activities include sunset cocktails at serene inland lakes, beach bon fires and hippo watching. Exciting lake canoeing trips, horse trails, shell spotting and bird trails keep young and old amused.
After a relaxed breakfast, there is time for an early morning dive or ride, before heading back to Maputo and your hotel.
