Tofo Mar has always promised a gracious base for all Mozambique explorers since 1969 when it all began. Surfers started finding the waves at Tofo, divers wanted to swim alongside giant Whale sharks and Manta rays and beach revellers wanted unique places to chill out. Tofo has evolved into the diving and snorkelling hub of the country on the pretty Inhambane coastline with its endless summer days, long deserted beaches, world-class water sports and diving courses and centres.
