A backpackers and diving lovers paradise


Idyllically set on the scenic Ponta da Barra peninsula in southeastern Mozambique, Tofo is a small fishing village and an exceptionally popular tourist destination. The curved Tofo Beach is an ideal swimming beach lined with a number of lively beach bars, restaurants and accommodation options as well as a small local market. The smaller Tofinho Beach is quieter and is a great spot for surfing and fly fishing.

Just beyond the beaches lie some pristine coral reefs inhabited by an impressive array of marine life which make it one of the tworld’s premier dive destinations with dolphins, manta rays and whale sharks regularly spotted. Other popular activities on offer include deep sea fishing, horse riding through the dunes, exploring the surrounding villages, or taking a trip to the nearby historic town of Inhambane where you can sample food at the local market or enjoy a leisurely dhow ride around the harbour.

Best time to visit Tofo

The quietest months are after Easter until early July. If you don’t like the crowds, that will be the best time to dive. Dive sites are not crowded, seas are calm, water temperatures have not dropped, and the big stuff is still around.


Enjoy some of the most spectacular dives in the world with sightings of whale sharks, sharks and rays of various species including giant mantas up to 7 m in wingspan, dolphins, various species of turtles, and the majestic humpback whales that visit these waters between the months of June to November during their annual migration.
