After a few hours driving south from Maputo on a red dust road, passing through the bush and sand dunes, you’ll reach Ponta do Ouro. Located at the frontier of South Africa, Ponta do Ouro with its sandy roads and relaxed cafes has a very chilled beach town vibe. Surfers come from everywhere to ride the waves off the beautiful bay while divers choose to explore the underwater world. Bull sharks are often encountered. You can also see in season humpback whales and the macro life is very rich. In the afternoon, try the classic portuguese pie ‘pasteis de nata’ from the local bakery: they are delicious!
The dive center is contributing to conservation conducting two research permits, one on Nudibranchs and one on Humpback whales.
For beginners and advanced divers who love sharks …and also macro life! For adventurous spirits who enjoy laid-back atmosphere. Non-diving partners will have a lot to do: walks on the beach, restaurants with a view, quad explorations, snorkelling, surfing, and why not a safari before or after in Kruger National Park in South Africa.
