Honeymoons in Maputo and Ponto do Ouro

Whether you are in search of sandy white beaches, the hustle and bustle of an African city or the serenity of a nature lodge, Maputo and Ponta do Oura in southern Mozambique combine it all in a unique cultural experience. Maputo is a thriving city harbour where great food, luxurious hotels, nightlife and beaches sum up the kind of honeymoon some couples love. Ponta do Ouro is more secluded, a Mozambique seaside village promising comfortable, rustic accommodation on the beach where you can walk for miles and swim with the dolphins.

Honeymoon in Maputo

A honeymoon in Maputo offers couples in love so much to do: interesting sights, historical landmarks and top class restaurants. Stay in fine accommodation – be it in chic hotels, friendly bed-and-breakfasts, homely guest houses or upmarket lodges. Whether you are in search of pristine white beaches, the vibrancy of an African city or the serenity of a nature lodge, Maputo combines it all in a unique cultural experience.

If you cross the Maputo harbour to the Santa Maria Peninsula and Inhaca Island, you will find rustic, secluded lodges where romance is the order of the day. You can still be close enough to Maputo for the lively nightlife yet far enough for the serenity of nature where long walks and lazy boat cruises fill your days.

The romance starts here! What you need is a couples’ spa treatment overlooking the Indian Ocean followed by a meal based on Portuguese tastes and seafood fresh from the sea. Maputo is a Mozambique destination where you can have fun on honeymoon, escaping the crowds if need be for solitude and that back-to-nature experience – just for the two of you.

Moving further south, a mere six kilometres from the South African border, you will find the town of Ponta do Ouro. Fast becoming internationally recognised as a top Mozambique beach and diving destination, Ponta do Ouro offers an array of activities for an outdoor honeymoon experience.

This ‘Point of Gold’ is where the sun always rises over a beautiful bay where visitors can swim with the dolphins. What could be more romantic than waking up to the golden sunrise then swimming together in warm seas with these ethereal creatures before dining on fresh crayfish and lazing on a beach together? A Ponto do Ouro honeymoon has it all – the social times in the village and cruising the cute restaurants and bars, and the solitary times alone, just you, the sea and the sand.

Both Maputo and Ponta do Ouro welcome honeymooners from all over the world, enticing couples in love with their fabulous restaurants and bars dotted along their unique beachfronts. This is where you will also find local crafters trading exquisite arts and crafts. Meet the friendly local people and learn their history.
