Tourism in Tofo centres around diving with Manta rays and Whale sharks, charismatic species endemic to this bay all year round. Dive more than 20 m to see both species at Manta Reef and Gallaria, top dive sites.
Once a charming fishing village, Tofo has grown into a vibrant Mozambique holiday resort with long white beaches, warm weather and jaw-dropping views. Surfers flock to Tofo Beach, running from a rocky point in the south up much of the length of Ponto do Barra. Meet other down-to-earth visitors around pub tables and in restaurants and discuss your experiences while watching the sea. Delight in fresh prawns at funky backpacker lodges and shop at the sole small African street market for fresh produce and small odds and ends.
Fishermen can try their luck at hooking King Mackerel, Dorado, Wahoo, Bonito and Yellow-fin Tuna during peak season from June to August. Hire a horse from the stables and ride along the beach in warm sea breezes. Hotels in the area have taken it upon themselves to set up a resident ecological centre for local sea life to manage and guide responsible tourism.
School holiday periods tend to be busy with many South Africans and others visiting tiny Tofo during the best weather.
