White golden beaches hug the Indian Ocean for miles along the coast of Mozambique. Rocky pools and bays formed by the conflicting currents intermittently jut and jar the coastline. Time seems to have forgotten to take count. On the Southern part of this coastline, near the South African border, you’ll find a curious beach town nuzzling the sea: Ponta do Ouro. As you travel by the sand road, immersed in tropical forests, eyes pierce through the forest toward you: these are the prying eyes of monkeys. The surround sound of nature buzzes in your ears. See Dolphin Tours
Inside Ponta do Ouro, negotiating the sand roads through the relaxed town with its square built houses, you’ll find friendly locals. In Ponta do Ouro a real sense of timelessness prevails. You’ll be amazed by the hospitable spirit of the Afro-Portuguese culture: you buy cashew nuts from the road-side stalls and check yourself into luxury accommodation. Nearby you’ll find Supermarket Solmar, with every holiday wish you might crave, at reasonable prices. Continuing your walk down the enchanting street, you’ll find a bottle store with all the magic potions that you might require. For a taste of local cuisine, try the Babalaza II that specialises in seafood.
The stretches of beaches and the warm turquoise ocean are home to many forms of marine life: turtles, bass, dolphins and whales. Swim with the dolphins, or dive the reefs. Explore the effervescent underwater scenery that is a shock of colour, while the clicks of dolphins pervade the surreal blue world. Witness the sometimes menacing, sometimes lazy underwater parade as whale sharks glide past in cumbersome languor and hammerhead sharks attest an entrancing disposition. Long walks on the pristine beaches and through lush vegetation bring you closer to the ancient tropical spirit of Ponta do Ouro.
