We spent 10 days in Barra, one of the most beautiful places in the world, Safe warm waters, reefs you can dive on and Ocean Safaris . Lots of sellers on the beach that can become irritating but bear in mind that they have to make a living .Out of season it nice and quite, so plan your trip accordingly

The best beach in Tofo, and one of the best we saw in Mozambique. There are lots of restaurants and lodges running along the beach yet it is very quite and peaceful.

The beach is ok, I prefer the beach at Tofo. The problem with this area is thats theres too many students / guys that think they own the place. They have a bad attitude and treat the locals very badly. So we packed up and headed to Tofo beach - where the people are much more laid back and you... More

Range of bars and next to no one there! South Africans all left. Found a raised bar restaurant just off the beach and had an amazing... More

This beach is a golden strip of absolute beauty. The beach is clean, water is warm and ideal for boogie boarding and kite flying when the wind is strong. The local are very helpful and you can haggle for a price on the local products.
