Why We Love Xai Xai Eco Estate

A strip of paradise overlooking the beach remains untouched by development and tourism and radiates awe-inspiring tranquillity.

Snorkelling, fishing, surfing, and other ocean adventures for all ages – or on the beach and soak up captivating views of the endless, warm Indian Ocean.

These villas are perched atop the many dunes in lush vegetation in Praia de Xai Xai with direct beach access and only 3 km from Xai Xai main beach.

Whale watching is perfect from the dunes and children can run free in the 12 ha of private, safe beachfront dune vegetation leading to the ocean.

18 holiday houses offer spacious self-catering facilities for families or couples, including ensuite bathrooms, swimming pools, TVs and terraces.

Xai-Xai Eco Estate is one of the best places to see whales along the entire Mozambique coastline and the best time to visit is in winter armed with binoculars to learn more about these gentle ocean giants.

South African visitors love Xai Xai Eco Estate due to its proximity to Johannesburg and Durban. It is now an easy self-drive holiday thanks to the upgraded tar roads that run from Maputo to the Kosi Bay border, and further north too. Xai Xai retains its Mozambican charm despite its increasing popularity with fishing enthusiasts – the eco-estate has been featured on top fishing TV programmes.  This region is renowned for its best-quality sports fishing, diving and snorkelling.
