ABOUT THE AREA
Ponta Mamoli is set in a pristine natural coastline with a sub tropical climate along the southern tip of Mozambique, around 100km south of Maputo and 20km north of the Kosi Bay border into South Africa, and 100km from the Komatipoort border.

Here you will find magnificent expanses of beaches with unspoilt offshore reefs which offer excellent scuba diving and snorkelling. No surprise why Ponta Mamoli has been voted as one of the top 10 beaches in Africa !

So true is the saying 'An ocean sunrise is the ultimate sunrise.' Early risers can settle on the deck (with a hot cup of coffee of course !), listen to the gentle sounds of the waves lapping on the shore, & watch in awe as the early morning sun slowly rises over the ocean, bathing her amazing African glow of golds, reds & orange hues over the wild African bush !

After a day of sun, sea, salt & sand, spend late afternoons with family or friends next to the refreshing 6m x 5m rim flow swimming pool, (which also has a small side paddle pool for kids), relaxing with sundowners on the wooden deck as you watch the ocean showcase it's different shades of crystal clear colours of turqoise and blues, everchanging with the flow of the warm Indian Ocean currents.

Watch the majestic whales coming up to the surface to blow air and sea spray or take a 10 minute walk down the beach to Fredericos snorkelling bay (bring own snorkelling equipment.) With the wide expanse of beach at Aloha early morning and late afternoon walks are most relaxing.

At Ponta Mamoli you will find a place so pure & exhilirating that though you will take your memories with you, you will always leave a piece of your soul behind in the sand.
