    We stayed at Filhas do Mar for two nights, and found it to be a great spot. Pieter was a fantastic host, and our room had a fantastic balcony with a view out to the beach. My only complaint was that the bed situation consisted of two twin beds pushed up against each other, but were made up as separate... More

    Filhas do Mar was quite a find for us just moments after entering Salema. While traveling there the four of us agreed we wanted to stay in town, and on or close to the beach. So many of the properties listed were 2-5 kms out of town so the Filhas do Mar fit our criteria. Situated in the flats of... More

    We had a great stay at Filhas do Mar set right at the Salema beach. The apartments are clean, spacious, airconditioned and fully equipped with everything you need.
