Overview

Ponta Beach Camps - General

Ponta Beach Camps is an affordable, family beach resort directly on the main Beach in the quaint seaside village of Ponta do Ouro, Southern Mozambique.

Ponta do Ouro is the most Southerly Mozambican town, situated just 4 kms (as the Seagull flies), and about 12 kms by road from the Kosi Bay border with South Africa. For those that don't have 4 x 4 vehicles, cars can be left at the secure parking area at the Border, and transfers to the resort arranged

Our emphasis is on Affordability and Informality - obviously without compromising Service & Quality.

Guest Comments

We were expecting a little better than what we got. From the really old and decrepit transfer vehicles which eventually broke down on the return trip forcing us to climb into the back of a bakkie to complete the journey to the general dirtiness and unkempt bungalows to the lack of hot water for three days and the unprofessional manager who did not even book our return shuttle even though she had been fully informed of the time of departure the day previous.
The shining stars were the male chef, James, Suzanna and Julio who went out of their way to try to make the mistakes go away and solve the problems.
I am sure with a bit of training and physical inspections by management all the problems we encountered can be resolved and not happen again.
We would go back and probably increase the length of our stay as the beach, the sea and the people made up for everything and made it ultimately an amazing holiday.

Great place to stay at!
