Ponta do Ouro Diving

Ponta Do Ouro is the southernmost tip of Mozambique and attracts many visitors every year with its friendly atmosphere, sandy beaches and excellent diving. The coastline stretching north from Ponta Do Ouro towards Ponta do Malongane is known for its marine life, beaches and dive sites. To add to the adventure access is by 4x4 only from the border with South Africa from where most resorts will collect their guests.

The Ponta do Ouro area of Mozambique offers diving for all levels of diver, with great sandy patches among the reef to start learning to dive all the way through to adrenalin Shark encountering dives. The area is renowned for its beautiful coral, game fish and invertebrates, throw in the Whale sharks, Hammerheads, passing Manta Rays and the friendly Potato Bass to make this a fantastic diving area.

All boat launches are done from the beach into the surf, so be prepared to partake and help out. Most of the dive sites are only a short boat ride away so you can get plenty time diving instead of riding to and from the dive sites, on the boat keep an eye out for the dolphins and whale sharks that cruise the bay.
