Hotel Tofo Mar

Tofo Beach, Inhambane

Hotel Tofo Mar - Inhambane, in Mozambique

The sand of Praia do Tofo gave birth in 1969 to what is known today as Hotel Tofo Mar, only 18km from Inhambane, in Mozambique.

“Tofo Mar”, later “Marinhos” and now Tofo Mar again, the hotel has been for decades a reference destination in one of the most beautiful beaches of the Indic Ocean. Its history is forever imprinted by the conclusion, at the Hotel Tofo Mar, of the final text of Mozambique Popular Republic’s Constitution.

Totally renovated and expanded, this boutique beach hotel reopens on late 2013 with 8 double rooms, 3 deluxe bedrooms and 2 suites, all superiorly equipped and including Wi-Fi access.

In the pristine waters of the Tofo area we not only have one of the biggest Whale Shark populations in the world, which can be spotted year round and sometimes in groups of up to 6 or 7 Whale Sharks at a time, as there is also the incredible opportunity to dive with graceful Giant Manta Rays (up to 7 m across) that can be found on most of our main dive sites in the area, all of which are within a 30 minute boat journey from Tofo.

Besides these gentle giants, the Tofo area also offers spectacular world class diving on pristine reefs with an abundance of marine life ranging from soft and hard corals, pelagic fishes, multitudes of reef fishes, shrimps, nudibranchs, giant moray eels, turtles, dolphins and a variety of rays, some of which are not seen in many parts of the world like the small eye stingray. Sightings of White Tip, Black Tip and Grey Reef Sharks are a common occurrence and even the occasional Leopard Shark or Hammerhead Sharks are seen every now and then.
