Tofo Beach
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 east.
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

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 "Big One".
Rock and Surf Fishing
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.

Our restaurant offers simple meals from hamburgers and pasta to the more extravagant and famous seafood platters.
