A quite nice daytrip, particular in a not so nice day but also for some shopping (exept off touristic things like wooden elefants, painted sunsets, sunglasses etc. there is not much to buy in Tofo). Get there by (very full) Chapa for 18 Metical, about 1 hour or by taxi a bit faster and 400 Metical.more
I really wanted to eat here. Twice. The first time was at lunch, but they ran out of food. The second time was at night but they had too many people. Rather than make us feel welcome or suggest we get some drinks, the staff made us feel in the way. In fact they made sure to let us know they did not want us there. Too bad. The food looked wonderful...more
This restaurant is formed by a massive wooden terrace that towers over the southern end of the beach. Service is rapid and friendly. The menu is very large and diverse. You can sit on long benches that go right to the edge. Music blends into the backgroung to make a great dinning experience.Casa Barry also offers accomodation in the budget...more
Nice restaurant, are central to Tofo where we find the quality of French cuisine, although the products are 100% local.Perfect for a meal with family or friends for those who enjoy, like me, the carpaccio, the Feuillete of fish with a glass of wine.Awarded:) CarpaccioCrab maioneseFeuillete of fresh fishCreme brulee;)more
This Backpacker complex has a fantastic bar high up on the dunes. You can get a cold 2M or Manica beer and lie in the hammocks just outside and watch the tide. They have games and other entertainment, but the chairs and hammocks with commanding views of the whole beach make this the best bar in Tofo.
They also offer food.
Fancy an early morning fish breakfast? Have a fish with some of the local men. They get up early and will probably let you join them for a small gift. The guys are out early to provide a good daily meal for their families and socialise at the same time. They are happy to have company, as this is a fun morning out as well.
There are several hotels that will let you grill your fish later in the day, or breakfast if you really want. This is a lot cheaper than the charter boats that will charge you a fortune because you are a tourist. You can learn more about the local families routine and the challenges they face day to day.
Its not just the landmines that kill, so does Malaria. If you are traveling from South Africa, remember your tablets and sprays! It is much easier to buy your needed supplies before you get into the country.
I would suggest you buy repellant with 100% DEET.
Favorite thing: Tofo is a great place to chill out for a few days and enjoy the sun, the sand and the warm Indian ocean. You can go diving, snorkelling or quad biking. The beach is huge and easy to just chill out on!
