7 Best Beaches in Mozambique – Days in the Sun

If you love beach holidays, Mozambique should be your next destination. You'll be spoilt for choice but here are the seven best beaches in the country.


Praia do Wimbe

Praia do Wimbe is one of those picture-perfect beaches with elegant palms, silky sand and blue hues. The beach itself is rather serene and romantic. You can take leisurely strolls along the beach and frolic amongst the waves to your heart's content. Simply let the beauty of Mozambique envelop you and watch the traditional fishing boats head towards the horizon carrying hopes of a good catch.


Tofo bay

Tofo bay is one of the well-known beach towns in Mozambique. Whether you've decided to spend your vacation at Mozambique resorts such as the Anantara Medjumbe Island Resort or simply plan to hop from beach to beach, don't skip this location. Tofo bay is laid back but the nightlife is pretty active. The beaches are stunning in Tofo bay and the waters are clear enough to let you snorkel in search of marine life. Tofo bay packs pulsating energy in terms of things to do. Try to catch the best waves to surf or play beach soccer. Catch a sunset over a fruity cocktail and live the good life.


Benguerra Island

This secluded island is breathtakingly attractive. You will simply fall in love with the views. Go seek creatures of the sea such as the stingrays, green turtles and white tip sharks that frequent the waters near the island. If you are fortunate, you'll catch a glimpse of a humpback dolphin too. Don't forget to explore the forest and freshwater lakes on the island while you are at it.


Lighthouse beach

You can reach the Lighthouse beach from Maputo Bay. The beach is located north of Inhaca Island. The beach is stunning and if you pay a small donation, you can climb the lighthouse. Once you reach the top of the lighthouse, you'll be greeted with a 360-degree view of the land and the ocean. If you are planning on visiting the rest of Inhaca Island, don't miss out on diving and other water sports.


Beira beaches (Macuti)

If you love shipwrecks and lighthouses, visit Beira located in Sofala Province. In addition to the beautiful beaches in the area, the Macuti shipwreck and the Macuti lighthouse attract curious travellers. The Macuti beach is pretty. However, ask the locals where the currents are strong before you venture into the sea.


Praia de Macaneta

Surfers love Praia de Macaneta for its enormous waves and excellent surfing conditions. The golden-hued sand in Praia de Macaneta is ideal for a day of simple relaxation too.


Ibo Island Beach

Nestling close to the Quirimbas National Park, Ibo island beach is blessed with magical lush green scenery and soft sand. You can dive in the crystal-clear waters to gaze at the effervescent marine life that thrives amongst the corals. The beach is tranquil and calls travellers to slow down and be in the moment, surrounded by the magic of nature.
