Top 5 / Africa

Mozambique is a surfer’s paradise thanks to plentiful beaches and some truly epic waves all throughout the year. With no shortage of shoreline, it’s difficult to pinpoint the best places to catch some surf, but here are five of the best.

Ihaca Island

The reef crest between northern Inhaca Island and Ilha Portuguesa contains some of the most consistent swells and warm waters all year. When the waves are working in your favor that’ll give you time to discover the 150 types of coral reefs hiding offshore.

Tofinho Point

There are four distinct surf breaks outside of the village of Tofo with Tofinho Point the most prominent. It has the most consistent right break in Mozambique and some of the strongest waves in Africa. This place is not for beginners.

Ponta d’Ouro

The world-class surf off of Ponta d’Ouro attracts surfers from all continents. Heavy rips move through the area during low tide, but the rest of the day offers prime surfing for anyone willing to give it a shot.

Barra Beach

Barra Beach contains steady breaks between 300 and 500 meters throughout the year and has waves suitable for every experience level, including kids. It gets a little hairy here during hurricane season but for the most part it’s one of the more pristine regions of Mozambique.

Guinjata Bay

Guinjata Bay lies roughly 20 kilometers south of Inhambane near Praia de Jangamo and offers some pretty gnarly right breaks consistently all year. The reef-coral beach also offers spectacular views and the waves are welcoming to kids as well as adults.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
