The local waters boast a worldwide reputation for some of the biggest populations of both Whale Sharks and Manta Rays in the world, and so there are daily trips with a number of scuba schools on offer.
For not even €30, you can jump in a speedboat and track the Indian Ocean wildlife for a couple of hours during the popular Ocean Safari.
Sporting only basic snorkelling equipment, an Ocean Safari gives you an easy opportunity to swim with the sea’s biggest fish for extended periods; but get ready to kick your fins hard if you want to keep up with the Manta Rays, who are slightly more camera shy.
If you’re still feeling active, there are an excellent range of other fun activities available in the area.Do some horseriding: See Tofo beach & Local village on horse back or kite-surf the coast of Tofo. Lessons are also available (depending on the season). Go on a fishing trip, see some of the beautiful remote islands, like pansy island on a boat trip, go waterskiing, wakeboarding or tubing.
If you are more up for some relaxation, just around the corner from MBM is the well-known Turtle Cove, who are a close-by for yoga sessions.
We have the contact details to arrange all of the above for you, feel free to ask us anything!

PADI Certified Scuba Diving
Scuba Paradise – because this area is so blessed with such a rich diversity of coral and fish, there are a number of outstanding dive sites in close proximity to Tofo and Tofinho beaches.
Consequently, there are a number of excellent dive schools close by offering a full range of services, from single dives and refresher courses to PADI dive instructor training.
Of course, here at MBM we have very well established relationships with these schools. We work together with Peri-Peri Divers. This can help you benefit with up to 20% discounts available.

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions that you might have and we will happily help you find out more.
If you are looking to live at a much slower pace during your time here, spend a day lazing around our aquabliss pool, sun loungers and hammocks or check out the amazing sunset from our sunset deck on the first floor. We are so spoilt; a slow walk down the beach is a must for anyone! We’re ideally situated in between all beaches. We’re close to Tofinho and Backdoor beach from where you can see the whales in season.
Tofo village and market are magical local spots close to Mozambeat Motel. The beach and diving is World Famous and a must for any active traveller. Go to Tofo to get the sense of the beauty of the local people and beaches, fantastic artwork and sculptures avialable, as well as a suprisingly broad range of fresh fruit and vegetables. Tofo beach is kms long, crazy deep and dusted in the finest of sands. You can sit and sunbathe (make sure you have at least factor 30!) in acres of space or join in the daily football matches with the locals.
Maputo is a 7-8 hour drive away from MBM, and everything that you could expect from a capital city. With its bustling restaurants, bars and beaches, Maputo is a dynamic and cosmopolitan centre where you can find pretty much anything that you want. An amazing cultural and social stop over, we definitely recommend that you visit Maputo when you come to Mozambique.
Mozambique has a growing reputation as a surfing hot-spot along the east coast of Africa, with superb swells sweeping in from the wide open oceans. Tofo beach is a great place for beginner and intermediate surfers, with sandy beach breaks allowing you to really master your skills.
The Surf Shack right on Tofo beach provides surfboards and surf lessons from beginners to professionals.
But the unsheltered wave of Tofinho point is a world class break attracting surfers from all over the world. Swell arriving directly from the Mozambique Channel hits Tofinho point, creating a right hand wave that can provide a challenge (and thrill) to even the most experienced surfers. Big peaks, tubes, and long rides are the name of the game here, just stay off the rocks!
And if these shots don’t whet your appetite to travel to exotic places, then we recommend you see a physician. Enjoy!
Between Mozambique and South Africa, there are a number of National Parks that host all of the Big 5 and offer the ultimate in wild animal action!
If you are travelling to MBM via South Africa, it is incredibly easy to pop into the world famous Kruger Park (a quick day visit in your own car is ridiculously cheap!) on the way. You can find a range of species on the doorstep of any gate, but we recommend sunrise or sunset visits, as the animals tend to hide away from the intense heat of the day.
Inhambane (pronounced In-yam-barn) is the provincial centre of the district of Inhambane. A stunning blend of colonial art-deco and modern architecture, Inhambane comprises a lazy mix of government offices, luxury hotels and local business. Here you can find European style restaurants and Internet cafe’s. A visit to the Central Market is a must, with fantastic fish, fruits, veg and local art on offer, but be prepared to haggle. And if you’re feeling brave, venture past the front stalls to discover the hidden eateries which serve tasty and generous portions of food for a steal! From the ferry port, it costs 10mts and takes approximately 1 hour to get to Maxixe, a bustling city with a wide range of goods situated on the main highway, if you need transport links down to Maputo or further north.
