Tofo Beach Accommodation

Baia Sonambula (meaning “sleeping beach”) is aptly named for its location on Tofo Beach in Mozambique. Spend your beach holiday here embraced by white-washed stone walls, thatched roofs and bougainvillaea gardens. Yes, this Mozambique guest house is an understated stylish beach hideaway in an authentically rustic beach village.

With unobstructed views of the Indian ocean beyond, gorgeous rooms offer guests complete privacy and relaxation. The main guest house also has large sea-facing balconies where breakfast is often served – indulge in homemade jams, yoghurts, muffins and pastries plus quality coffee.
