Macaneta Hotels

Macaneta is often referred to as a small island just north of Maputo. Whilst not technically an island it can be reached by a new bridge from the small town of Marracuene. There is a wide selection of lodges, resorts and hotels on this beautiful ocean beach.

Cova do Tubarão

Cova de Tubarão is just 35km north of Maputo on the secluded Macaneta Beach. Enjoy the sunrise and sunsets over the ocean from the comfort of your bed and from the sundeck of your luxury log wooden house, while sipping exotic cocktails. Not even the whales in the distance will disturb your sleep.

We have a bar and a restaurant with a walkway onto a deck on the dunes in front of the lodge. Breathtaking views over the ocean where you can sit and relax and be spoiled by our friendly staff.

Enjoy the ideal Mozambique beach holiday with our lodge that offers a little bit for everyone, especially families. We have a trampoline and jungle gym for the kids, quad bike hire is close by, and for the bigger kids we can organise trips to Inhaca Island and of course the Mozambique coast offers incredible fishing.
