A wonderful combination of pristine beaches and lush indigenous vegetation, the small Mozambique beach holiday town of Ponto da Ouro draws visitors to its cute shops, banks, restaurants and nightlife. This popular Mozambique destination is only 10 kilometres from the South African border therefore highly accessible for most travellers.
Discover the fantastic cache of experiences and biodiversity at Ponto da Ouro: inland lakes, sweeping grasslands and thick forests make this a place of adventure and relaxation all in one. Visitors to this beach holiday hub are there for the diving with dolphins, whale watching, excellent scuba diving, game fishing, sightseeing – and of course, socialising.
Explore the dense dune forests with a 4×4 scenic tour or walk the main streets visiting the open-air markets and eager curio sellers. Lastly, sit down and enjoy the local cuisine at Ponta do Ouro restaurants and bars while watching the sun go down.
Ponta do Ouro or “Point of Gold” is so named because early Portuguese explorers believed unreliable maps which informed them that gold could be found there. Upon arrival, however, they found that the dunes were rich in black titanium instead – the only gold was the sun setting into the infinite ocean!
