Top 5 / Africa

The Mozambique coastline is one of the most pristine in all of Africa. It’s filled with beautiful coral reefs and fascinating sea creatures, which is why it’s also an incredibly popular diving destination. Here are the top five dive spots along the coast.

Bazaruto Archipelago

Bazaruto Archipelago is located between Mozambique and Madagascar and has some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Underneath the waves you’ll find pods of humpback whales, sharks, giant lobsters and even dudongs. It’s home to both soft and hard corals and thousands of tropical fish.

Ponta Mamoli

Ponta Mamoli has diving depths between nine and 40 meters with coral reefs thicker than most rainforests. Some of the sea life here includes blennies, hermit crabs, green fills, orange and blue stripes and gobies.

Nacala Bay

Nacala Bay is perfect for both beginners and advanced divers with depths reaching 50 meters at the wall. Here you’ll find beautiful tropical fish like ribbon eels, leaf fish and anglers along with incredibly thick slopes of coral.

Ponta do Ouro

Ponta do Ouro is one of the newest dive sites open to the public and it’s just a short trip away from the South African border. It contains untouched coral reefs and protected bays where you’ll discover sea turtles, sharks, dolphins, potato bass, scorpion fish and more. Depths are 10–40 meters.


Pemba is a favorite among experienced divers thanks to a flourish of untouched reefs and crystal-clear waters. Some local dwellers include bigger fish like the snowflake soapfish and plenty of tropical corals. The Penguin Shoal dive has some of the most beautiful coral forests only 30 meters deep.
