PONTA BEACH CAMPS is an affordable, family beach resort directly on the main Beach of the quaint little seaside village of Ponta do Ouro, Southern Mozambique.
Our Camps are situated on what must be the finest piece of beach front property in Ponta
It is on the main swimming beach, protected by the bay and point – famously known as the “Point of Gold” (Ponta do Ouro)
Our emphasis is on Affordability, and Informality – obviously without compromising Service & Quality
Ponta do Ouro is the most Southerly Mozambican town, situated just 4kms (as the Seagull flies) from the Kosi Bay border with South Africa
A Ponta Beach camp not only serves as a base to explore Ponta, and Southern Mozambique, but also as a base to participate in all the activities that Ponta is renowned for: scuba diving, dolphin & whale watching, surfing, kite boarding, jet skiing, fishing, bird watching, wildlife safaris.
For those that don’t have 4 x 4 vehicles, cars can be left at the secure parking area at the Border, and transfers to the resort arranged.
Our emphasis is on affordability and informality – obviously without compromising service & quality.
PONTA BEACH CAMPS are essentially 2 separate camps, and a small private campsite.
1. Ponta Beach Camps – en – suite Beach Front Camp
2. Ponta Beach Camps – Main Camp
3. Ponta Beach Camps – Private Campsites
BEACH FRONT CAMP:
Consists of large permanent ”East Africa Safari Style” Tents, constructed on elevated wooden platforms. These units are located virtually on the beach. All are en-suite.
The camp is self catering, and there is a communal kitchen and dining area behind the accommodation units.
For those not wanting the hassle of cooking, our popular restaurant Barraca do Ponta situated in the next door MAIN CAMP, offers affordable meal options and catering packages.
The whole camp is security fenced & security guards patrol at night
This camp is much larger, and set back a little from the beach, under the coastal trees.
There are essential two types of accommodation options available in this camp:
Barracas – which are traditional, reed constructed “Mozambique style” rooms, and
Safari Tents – which are the smaller, classic safari tents.
There are also 3 private campsites situated within the Main Camp Area. Campers booking these sites enjoy full use of the Main Camp facilities
This camp is serviced by 2 large communal ablution blocks, with hot & cold water.
