Our small quality guest house, set in cool green gardens and overlooking beautiful Tofinho Beach provides excellent accommodation in five artistically styled rooms with en-suite bathrooms, private veranda and a high standard of service from our friendly staff. The Café No Mar restaurant and wine bar offers delicious cuisine and quality wines in a cozy, intimate setting - enjoy beautifully prepared meals and panoramic ocean-views from your table.
Café No Mar is located on Tofinho Beach, a stunning stretch of pristine sand, beautiful dunes and rolling surf. Tofinho Beach is the quieter of the two Tofo beaches and is the perfect place to spend your days relaxing on the waters edge, watching the whales jumping and the dolphins playing in the surf or a lazy whaleshark cruising by. Its also just a short distance to Tofo Beach where there are plenty of activities such as world-class scuba diving.
Come and be our guests, relax in style and comfort and enjoy a truly memorable Mozambican holiday...
What to Bring
The temperature in Tofo rarely drops below 20°C, even at night, so opt for light clothes, t-shirts, shorts and sandals. During the winter months you might need a sweatshirt or long-sleeve t-shirt to keep the chill off. During January and February and also a little in June and July, you might also need a light rain jacket. A hat is essential as the sun is very strong, all year round, and especially if you are spending lots of time out on boats! If you're planning on horse riding, remember to bring boots. Suntan lotion is difficult to find in Tofo so bring plenty with you as well as mosquito repellant for the nights.
