About Esperanca do Mar
Need a break to escape your daily routine. Come and visit Esperanca do Mar or Home at Sea for a relaxing holiday. We are situated at Macaneta, 30 km north of Maputo in Mozambique. To reach Macaneta, you have to cross the river at Maraquenne with a Ferry- an experience by itself.
Come and experience the unspoilt and uncrowded beach that stretches for 80 km to Bilene in the north. We are located amongst pristine tranquil bush surroundings, ideal for bird-watchers and those needing to recharge in peaceful surroundings. There is also excellent deep-sea fishing for those fishermen looking to hook and hopefully land the big one.
Our shaded camp sites are only 300 m from the beach and offer electrical points, lighting, barbecue areas, and ablution facilities with hot water. Our self-catering Chalets consist of two air-conditioned bedrooms, sleeping up to 5 people, with a bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen, and own barbecue area. The units are only 130m from the beach. The Safari Tent and Cabin each sleep up to 5 people in an air-conditioned, open-plan bedroom. The units are only 110m from the beach and have private bathroom and kitchen facility on the outside.
If you are a boat owner, we can launch your boat with a tractor, but we also have skilled,licensed personnel to charter those not owning their own boat. Day trips to the beautiful Inhaca and Portuguese Islands can also be arranged for an even more memorable holiday. Those with their own boats can take day trips to the islands for a lovely picnic, excellent seafood, scuba diving, snorkelling, or to simply walk around and enjoy what the islands have to offer. Boats, quads, and jet skis are all welcome at Esperanca do Mar.
We have a Scuba diving school in our camp, where you can get certified .Training is done in our swimming pool. Scuba diving at Inhaca can be arranged.
There is also a choice of restaurants nearby serving excellent seafood which is a must during your stay, or take a trip to Maputo and enjoy the vibrant city life and ample restaurants to choose from there.
Please note that the last 200m of the road to our camp is very sandy- it is best to come with a 4x4 vehicle or at least a vehicle with diff-lock.
Beach: Located within walking distance from the beach, with lovely ocean views.
