Tofo beach is situated in the province of Inhambane and is 22km
from the City of Inhambane.
Inhambane as a City is steeped in history as it was a favourite
place for ancient sailors and slave traders to stop and replenish
their resources. The natural estuary allows vessels to enter a naturally
calm area where there was always fresh water and supplies. Vasco
De Gama the famous Portuguese adventurer made Inhambane one of his
favourite stop off points as he and his men were able to moor their
ships in the calm bay and replenish before continuing to and from
The name Inhambane means the place of the friendly people and still
today this legend lives on with the local population being extremely
friendly and happy.
The local population tap the juice of the coconut trees during the
season when the trees are flowering and with this sap they make
a favourite alcoholic drink called Sura. At certain times of the
year (Sura season) there are lots of celebrations and visitors are
able to taste the powerful local brew at their own peril
Casa Barry Lodge has been linked to Tofo Scuba for the past 10 years.

hot in the summer months
The seas around Tofo are well known for the spectacular fishing
that is available all year round. The first 1000lb Marlin caught
off the African coast was caught at Tofo and because of the very
steep drop off, caused by the Mozambique current coming very close
to the land, this produces a huge array of different game fish,
as well as an abundance of bill fish very close to the shore.
The Lodge offers Fishing charters on their 2 fully equipped ski-boats,
either with or without tackle and with a qualified assistant, who
will assist in helping you to achieve that dream of landing the

The rock and surf fishing in and around Tofo is spectacular, with
wonderful ledges, sandy beaches and the famous cliffs of (Goat Hill
)Tofinho, there is definitely a spot for everyone to fish from.
Whether it is doing drop shot style fishing or hunting for the big
Giant King Fish.
The largest Bone fish caught in Tofo this season was 9,86 kg, so
if you are up to it maybe you can smash the World Record with one
of these wonderful fighting fish.
If you like fishing, Tofo will excite you.
Casa Barry Lodge has a full restaurant and bar facility on it's
premises, Our restaurant and deck are on the waters edge and overlooks
the famous Tofo Bay swimming beach. Our restaurant offers simple
meals from hamburgers and pasta to the more extravagant and famous
seafood platters. We try and offer as many fresh seafood dishes
as possible, however this does sometimes depend on what our fishermen
manage to catch on the day.

other local dishes are also on offer in the restaurant - these all
being specialties of our local chefs.
