It is easy to spend hours relaxing - reading and meditating - on this quiet beach. When we were visiting there were no more than 10 people on the beach, and a few well-kept dogs enjoying the beach.

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.
