Baia Sonambula is lovely. it is an oasis of understated, tasteful luxury right on the beach of Tofo. Sheer curtains blow in the sea breeze all day and night long. i slept with my sliding door wide open to hear the ocean and to wake up to see it..from my bed! It is very private and very comfortable.

This place was suggested by an expat in Maputo. They didn't have availability for my whole stay, so I only spent 2 nights there in two different bungalows. If you are wondering whether or not to splurge on your trip, I would say this is the place to do it--in #4. Their newest bungalow commands a spectacular view of the...
