About

#48 of 130 Specialty lodging in Inhambane Province
Pleasure Bay is situated approximately 485km north of Maputo in Mozambique. Our charming chalets are all built on the highest dunes and all have beautiful sea views overlooking the bay “Baia Das Correntes,” which is protected by the “Lighthouse” Reef - one of the finest and most spectacular Coral Reefs in Mozambique. Location: Situated approximately 485 kilometers North of Maputo on a very good tarred road. Presently a section of (+-) 70 kilos still to be upgraded. The Resort is reached via a gravel road of 24 kilos, from the main road to Inhambane. The last 4 kilos to the Resort is a sand track which requires a 4x4 vehicle. We can also accommodate 4x2 vehicles which will be securely stored at the end of the sand road. We will then arrange travel to and from the beach on a daily basis. You will need a 4x4 to go down to the beach. Vehicles are allowed to launch boats, canoes and kayaks from the beach into a beautifully protected Bay. You may also take your party and picnic goodies to the beach where you must park your vehicle. Driving on the beaches is not permitted. Quad bikes and motor cycles are not allowed on beaches in Mozambique

We tried the restaurant twice, and twice we were tremendously frustrated. The place has such a nice vibe, the problem is that there was no service at all. We didn’t even taste the food, because after having waited more than an hour, we asked about it and found out that the order had not even reached the kitchen staff yet. It was exactly the same the next time we decided to give it another try. Others were experiencing the same. I would suggest driving to Guinjata, where the restaurants are much better, if you want to have dinner or a few drinks and a plate of chips.

We stayed at Pleasure Bay resort in Jangamo in June 2019 and had a great time, despite the weather being terrible. The hosts Vossie & Nellie are such great people and a big thank you to Corne for the kind upgrade on our unit we stayed in. The units are stocked with the basic utensils and are all clean and neat. We stayed in Perri-winkel and had a nice view of the sea and was also not to far to walk to the beach, a bit steep on the way back, but a bit of exercise never killed anyone. The restaurant on the premises was great, the chef knows her way around the kitchen, always had great food to eat. The barman was so friendly and also had time for a chat. The view from the restaurant and pool area is great, water was freezing during our visit, but probably very welcome on a hot summer's day

We stayed at the house Onca, one of the 8 sleeper houses at pleasure bay for our December holidays. Pleasure bay has a superb location which is walking distance from the beach, swimming pool and bar. The houses are private with a nice see view and with an always blowing sea-breeze. This sea breeze is nice for cooling you down during the warm summer days. There is good security with no locals disturbing you at your house. The accommodation is basic with mosquito nets and roof fans in the bed rooms

Pleasure Bay Resort - What's Your Pleasure? Let's face it - it's no fun getting lost in the bush on the way to your December hols, and add to that a severe case of motion sickness... But things started improving the moment we arrived at Pleasure Bay Resort, Mozambique. On stepping from the car, we were guided straight to the resort's open-air restaurant with its high thatched roof and palm-framed sea view. There, a few R&Rs - renowned for positively amending one's perspective on the world - indeed did much to lift our travel-weary party's mood. Some juicy Portuguese chicken and prawns gave us back some oomph, and then our happy and repleted company was shown to our respective rooms. I hadn't really known what to expect, but the accommodation turned out to be a lovely surprise. Supplying in all the basic needs, the units are tastefully decorated in shades of green, and palm leaf ceilings lend a distinctive 'island feel'. We all felt right at home. One of our units had a truly superior full-on sea view, while the other was set in lush vegetation and looked directly onto shrub frequented all day long by a very vocal and energetic type of bird. The resort is home to a wide variety of bird life, and excellent photographic opportunities abound. There's also a good chance that one might spot, from the comfort of your veranda, the odd whale cruising past. Or you can opt to increase your whale-spotting chances by booking to go on a dolphin and whale safari. But the true marvel of Pleasure Bay Resort lies in its unique reef. At low tide, this perfectly placed 'barrier' creates a tranquil, shallow pool, about one kilometer long and 500 meters wide, that is ideally suited to all types of water sport. A little town of gazebos grows from the sand every morning, and young and old have hours of fun every day, kayaking, snorkeling and fishing from the reef. Scuba diving is big, and Vossie runs an operation a stone's throw from the breakers, right on the beach. Kitting up takes place on a spacious roofed deck, with a handy wall of benches to sit on. After dives, assistants fetch your kit from the boat and clean it, after which it goes to live in a special little room until your next dive. Another popular pastime is barhopping on the beach. There are three restaurants with bars to choose from within a radius of one kilometer from Pleasure Bay Resort, and then there's a super four-kilometer-long hike along the beach to Guinjata's watering holes. Once there, be sure to try one of Jeff's epic pizzas - we just couldn't keep away! Sore from all the unusual activity? Stroll over to the nearby wellness centre, where you can choose from a variety of massage techniques. Another rather useful treatment is a mudpack for sunburn. Other attractions within easy reach from Pleasure Bay are a trip to the town of Inhambane and a day-outing on a dhow that includes snorkeling and a visit to the magnificent Pansy Island: think shocking-blue skies, bone-white sand littered with scores of pansy shells... and nothing else. It's like walking in a picture postcard. All in all, I can highly recommend Pleasure Bay Resort.

Our second visit in as many years. This time, we took the kids along. Absolute magical experience! Went deep sea fishing, kids did a resort course and scuba dived, snorkeled in what must be one of the best snorkeling sites in the world, on a daily basis. The restaurant is always available on days you don’t feel like cooking. Day trips to Tofu/Inhambane only 30min away. Market on the beach, beach bar- simply paradise! Rooms are basic but well appointed with all the necessary utensils and braai facilities.
