Whilst the Indian ocean provides exciting diving, surfing and fishing, the bay of Inhambane is tranquil and serene dotted with islands and sand bars at low tide. Take a traditional dhow cruise and look for pansy shells on pansy Island.

The beaches at the lookout have everything: on the North bay-side is a calm beautiful swimming beach whilst the south beach is fun and adventurous with great surfing but also more private and secluded. The dunes around the house provide a stunning setting and endless fun for children in a truly unique environment.

The Lookout is fully equipped for a luxury self-catering holiday and is serviced daily by two dedicated staff members so there is nothing to do but to sit back and enjoy yourself!

Further details indoors

The property has two bedrooms in main house and two more in the cottage, the two sections being attached via the deck and only a few steps from the main areas allowing two families to holiday together with privacy. The main house has two bedrooms, a king size room with walk-in en-suite (including a bathtub with sea views and a large walk-in shower) and the family/children's room with huge family bathroom bathtub, double sinks and shower). Both these rooms have stunning sea views and sliding doors onto the front deck. There is a fifth room that can accommodate more guests available on request (an extra 3 pax).

All bedrooms have air conditioning and fans. The main area has a modern open plan kitchen and a large lounge and dining area with stunning views.

Two huge folding doors open the main area onto the front deck and the pool deck.

The pool is perfectly positioned and the areas flow well making for an easy and relaxing holiday for all the family.

Further details outdoors

The house is situated in the private beach estate of Praia da Rocha, 6kms south of the town of Tofo. A private walkway leads from the house down to the south beach or over the dune to the bay. The house looks over the rock and has a 180degree view of the north beach, the rock and directly in front the south beach stretching away over endless beach to the south.

The bay is perfect for safe swimming, snorkelling and body surfing. The rock is fabulous for exploring and has a secret beach, a cave and endless rock pools. Fishing from the shore is on a catch and release basis, the area being a newly created marine reserve. Praia da Rocha offers really flexible activities and there is something for everyone in the area.

Location description from owner

The Inhambane Province region

The city of Inhambane is in reality a charming, sleepy port town, still retaining the old colonial Portuguese character but with a distinctly Mozambican flavour. Here the central market is still a genuine market with only a little focus on tourists and more on the business of trading the locally produced fruit and vegetables along with fish and prawns.

The town of Tofo, 18kms to the east, is directly on the beach and boasts an array of dive and sea activity operations along with a small market and numerous beach bars and cafes. Despite being the launch point for world class diving, trips to snorkle with dolphins and whale sharks and game fishing boats, the town remains very low key and quiet. Between the two on the north point of the peninsular is Barra, a beautiful beach with numerous lodges, restaurants and bars dotted long its expanse of sand and palm trees.

Tofo

The Praia da Rocha beach estate is centred upon a beautiful bay offering protected swimming or body surfing further round the bay.

The north beach extends for 6 empty kilometres before reaching a point. The rock itself boasts a secluded beach, a cave and endless opportunities to explore, especially at low tide. The south beach extends for another 6 undisturbed stunning kilometres.
