Tofo Beach Accommodation is located in Tofo, a lovely beach town in the Inhambane Province of Mozambique. Tofo Beach Accommodation offers travellers a choice of three self-catering cottages, with a rustic and home-like atmosphere.

The cottages are equipped for self-catering and feature electricity, warm water, fridges and separate freezers, cooking facilities, cutlery and crockery, bedding, and mosquito nets. Each cottage also boasts a verandah with spectacular views of the beach and ocean - guests may even spot dolphins and whales. The cottages are equipped with safes for valuables and the bathrooms have showers only, and guests also have access to an outside barbecue area.

All the cottages are serviced daily and the house cleaner can also arrange someone to do your laundry at a small fee. Although 220 volt electricity and standard three-point plugs are provided, during peak season the electricity supply cannot match Tofo’s demand and periodic power cuts are experienced. In addition, a guard patrols the area during the night to ensure guests' safety.

Tofo is a lovely open beach with lovely reefs for fishing and snorkelling, spazas, beach bars and dive schools. The headland is a favourite spot for fishermen when high tide covers the shelf, allowing casting for king fish. Tofinho is also the site of the Frelimo Monument to Fallen Heroes and a spectacular blowhole near the tip of the point can give a raw display of power when there is a large swell running.

Tofo Beach Accommodation is the perfect place to slow down your pace of life, relax and just leave your footprints.

6 Reviews on Tofo Beach Accommodation

We had a great stay at Tofo Beach Accommodation. No need for a car as everything you need is on your doorstep. You don't even have to leave the place as various people come to you to sell their wares from fish/prawns to cashew nuts and curios.They are a bit over priced for foreigners. The place was clean. A double/king size bed in one room would be nice. It is an old house but tidy. Do not expect 5 star fancy accommodation. I recommend it and would like to go back. Very convenient to have the beach off your front porch.

I stayed at casa Christine from October 18 to 21 2013 with my family. The house is located with a great view and we were lucky enough to see humpback whales from the veranda. The house is fully equipped and fresh and clean. I will recommend it to anyone wanting to be near tofo but not right at the center. Walking to town is about 15 minutes and that gave us the calm we wanted. Preferably go by car, or at least backpacks, the road is sand so wheeled suitcases are pointless! Thank you for a great stay - really value for money - and also complements to pedru, who was a great help!

If there was some other route to get to Tofo if one could skip Maputo and the Lebombo border, this place would probably become my permanent holiday destination! Nonetheless, I still look forward to my next visit to this lovely place. Tofo is like nothing else; the people are very friendly and helpful, and the beach in the Tofo bay was the perfect place to escape the worries of the past year. The local salesmen may become too much at times, but they are all very trustworthy and you just need to learn how to work with them. We stayed at Casa Christine and this is a wonderful place for a family or a group of friends to relax and enjoy the Mozambican vibes. The large stoep is where we spent most of our time and the house is fully equipped with everything you may need. The housekeeper, Pedros, is very helpful and friendly and he helps you to get the best prices for local seafood and he also assists you in cleaning the fish. The only thing we struggled with was directions as soon as we arrived in Tofo. I recommend future visitors to avoid driving at night and a sign board might be helpful in such a case. Other than that, Casa Christine is highly recommended and we would love to visit it again in future!

Had a very memorable holiday in Tofo/Tofinho. Stayed in Casa Christine which is right opposite Tofinho's renowned surf point. The old thatched roof 'casa' has a lot of character. Its big under cover veranda was a big welcome to relax after long strolls down the beach to Tofo beach as well as night time with the cool sea breeze in your face. Enjoyed our stay in Casa Christine and would recommend it to any one, especially if you plan an all out surfing holiday to Tofinho due to its direct proximity to the break. Thank you Tofo Beach Accommodation.

We were delighted with Casa Derika and its fabulous position on the fantastic beach. It's a tropical dream spot. Adequate, simple furnishings, well-equipped holiday kitchen, very small bathroom. Pedro and the night guard are both very obliging and helpful. Could have had better bath and beach towels and a few beach chairs would have been great. We arrived in Tofo late at night and while we did manage to find Casa Derika in the dark (thanks to the satellite map provided), I think guests should be advised to come during daylight hours. Also guests driving from Maputo should be warned that the driving conditions are very tough and they should allow at least 8 or 9 hours.
