A piece of paradise, elegant and simple, warm and friendly, so many ways to describe this beautiful corner of the world, and we haven’t even mentioned the diving yet.
Baia Sonambula Guest House is one of the nicest guest houses in the area, just a 5 minute stroll along the beach from the central market and dive centre and in a slightly elevated position it also offers some of the most beautiful views of Tofo bay.
The guest house offers a total of 5 rooms, 3 with sea views and 2 within the main house. The main house (to which all guests have access too) has a small lounge area with library, and a small kitchen where you can prepare your own fruits or salads purchased from the market (although no cooking is allowed).
Tea and coffee is available throughout the day, and there’s an honesty bar offering wine, beer, water, mixers and sodas.
Outside of the main house there’s a shaded terrace, a shaded dining area, and a sundeck offering a few loungers and wonderful views, it’s a perfect place for that pre dinner G&T. Tofo, being a small village offers some amenities, there’s a regular bus service into Inhambane & Maputo, there’s normally a cab hanging around too.
Most guest houses offer a laundry service, and there are a few places to buy provisions and essential toiletries, although don’t expect the wide range that we have here.
Diving in Tofo is arranged by us with either Diversity or Tofo Scuba, all diving at Tofo is undertaken by RIB, and sometime the beach launches can be as exciting at the dives themselves.
