Tofo, Inhambane Province
Tofinho Beach Cottages is situated 560 km north of Maputo and 20km from the capital city of Inhambane and enjoys Tofinho's prime spot. Located right at Tofinho's main beach it takes less than 100 meters to experience the hot waters of the Mozambique Channel. The cottages is self catering and ideal for families and friends with each house served by a house-cleaner during day-time ….. no need for mom to make the beds, sweep the floors, or wash the dishes. During night time a guard is keeping an eye out so that your privacy and security is not compromised. The verandahs offers spectacular sea views and frequent sightings of dolphins and whales. Tofinho Beach Cottages are just far enough from the hustle-and-bustle of Tofo's main beach, but still within walking distance, either by road (some 1,5 km.) or a 30 minute stroll along the...

Spent the week on a deep sea fishing trip with friends. Great place to stay with good launching facilities close by. Bernardo was extremely helpful and we came to a clean house every afternoon. Enjoyed the nearby facilities and loved the late afternoon drinks and braai from the veranda overlooking the sea. I will be back!!

Management response:

We glad you had a great time and fishing at Casa Quentin. Bernado is always ready to lend a hand. Casa Quentin have one of the best views on the Tofinho Beach!

'When the best of a holiday is the people, nothing can go wrong'. This house is just perfectly placed to enjoy the surf view but also so comfortable and has everything is needed for a perfect accommodation. Ricardo, Castelo, Gideon, Bernardo, Sr. Gonsalves, Ernesto... are a great time! Thanks for making everything so easy! I will be back for sure!...

Management response:

Thanks Maria, we are glad you and Ana had a splendid time at Tofinho. To experience a whale breaching while surfing, must have been a life time experience!!

Had a wonderful stay at Casa Gideon for two weeks with my family (3 couples). The house has got the PRIME location, right ON the surfspot, and you can check the waves from the stoep, with a quick hop across the road you can be in the water within 2 minutes! The house is spacious, with excellent braai facilities (sheltered...

About the neighbourhood
Tofinho, less than a kilometre south of Tofo, is situated on a more exposed and rocky headland and the waves at Tofinho are known for very good surfing. The headland is also a favourite spot for fishermen when a high tide covers the shelf, allowing casting for the plentiful kingfish into the deep waters beyond. Tofinho is also the site of the Frelimo Monument to Fallen Heroes, near to where unfortunate victims of the colonial period were thrown into a sea cave, to be drowned by the rising tide. A spectacular blow hole near the tip of the point can give a raw display of power, when there is a large swell running. Accommodation Tofinho Beach Cottages offers a selection self-catering cottages, spread above the Tofino Beach.
