Set amongst the dunes overlooking the sparkling Indian Ocean, Ponta Mamoli is an idyllic beach paradise.
A number of rare and varied ecosystems can be found in the area, namely; magnificent unspoilt expanses of beach, endemic rich woody grasslands, dry savannas, swamp forests, fresh water coastal lakes and floodplains characterised by expanses of reed beds, bulrushes and papyrus.
Ponta Mamoli - previously voted as one of the top 10 beaches in Africa, is definitely the place to visit.
Restaurants, cafés and bars are speckled along the beachfront where locals sell their arts & crafts. This is a laid back town where you can expect to kick your shoes off without thinking of them until you leave.
Turtles lay their eggs in the soft beach sand and you might even spot a few as they make their way to their nests. There is a quad pit between Ponto Do Ouro and Ponta Malongane. Ponto is great for outdoor holidays where visitors can explore coastal forests by 4×4 or dive through some of the last high quality off-shore coral reefs still left on earth. These corals create the most unbelievable underwater scenery and reefs teem with potato bass, parrotfish, angelfish, rock cod, eels and more.
One of the prime draw cards is that you can swim with Whale sharks that frequent these waters. These “cows of the sea” are peaceful and beautiful creatures which normally grow to three times the size of an elephant! Inshore Bottlenose and Spinner dolphins live in Ponto’s sheltered waters and Humpback whales pass through the area during winter time.
