Mozambique is famed for its glorious beaches amid idyllic surroundings along with fantastic diving sites, and no more is it more justified than in the stunning beach village of Praia do Tofu, truly a piece of heaven on earth.
Imagine long stretches of pristine powder white sand framed by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, a friendly local passing by selling freshly cut pineapple, splendid resorts and hotels tucked away behind sand dunes with hundreds of palm trees as a backdrop; this is the picture perfect setting of Praia do Tofu. Situated just a few kilometres from the historic town of Inhambane, the small coastal hamlet village is centred on fishing and tourism and a wonderful cultural mix is to be found in the food, customs, and architecture.
Praia do Tofu is a sweeping curved beach sheltered by rock and reef which makes it ideal for swimming and surfing. There is a thriving community of fishermen living in and around the village where they pull up their multi colored boats to sell their daily catch. The spirit is lively and a laid-back atmosphere exists. Great accommodation options include backpackers, lodges, camping sites, self-catering establishments, and private guest houses. Browse the beach craft market and enjoy scrumptious Mozambican cuisine in the excellent restaurants and pubs. Take a walk along the unspoiled beach and afterwards have sundowners at a lively beach bar whilst taking delight in the astounding sunsets.
Praia do Tofu is home to exceptional reefs and the aptly named Manta Reef is a superb scuba diving and snorkeling spot. Take pleasure in seeing a giant manta ray swimming by, discover the vibrantly colored marine life, and marvel at the sheer magnificence of the seasonal whale sharks. Various diving and deep sea fishing operators are based in the village, as well as diving instructors. Take a trip to Inhambane to observe the ancient architecture, visit the superb market, or take a dhow ride in the bustling harbor. Praia do Tofu is breathtaking, exciting and peaceful at the same time, a tropical Garden of Eden that will lift the spirit and leave visitors with unforgettable precious memories.
