White Pearl Resorts Ponta Mamoli
Set in the dunes of the untouched shores of southern Mozambique at Ponta Mamoli and tucked behind Casuarina trees, is where you will find the beautiful White Pearl Resorts – quite unlike any other in all of Mozambique. Situated on stilts, while protecting the eco-systems beneath them, are the 22 ocean-front suites, each with a plunge pool and outdoor shower overlooking the warm Indian Ocean.
These consist of 6 Beach pool suites and 16 pool suites. Inspired by the coastal biodiversity and ocean reefs, the contemporary styled resort offers a laid-back beachside chic feeling, while making the most of the incredible views. Warmed by the Indian Ocean’s current which moves south from the equator, Mozambique enjoys clear waters and subtropical climate, giving guests even more of a reason to come to this enticing beachside resort located on a 2 km stretch of tranquil beach.
Why we like it here
The resort is a premium dive destination, with 19 dive sites and a PADI Accredited Dive Centre.
Situated within a Marine Reserve (PPMR), the ocean safaris are unrivalled.
Bottlenose Dolphins are visible throughout the year and guests often have the experience of swimming with them during ocean safaris, while guided by the team.
Whale season starts from the end of July to the beginning of December each year, when Southern right whales and Humpback whales can be seen playing in the bay.
Turtle nesting season takes place between November and March and is when Loggerhead and Leatherback Turtles come ashore to nest. White Pearl offers infra-red turtle walks to the nesting sites in the evenings.
Private dining is part of the White Pearl experience, as are pop-up stations like the Gin and Tapas station on the beach.
With its proximity to the Kruger National Park and the Maputo Special Reserve, White Pearl Resorts makes a perfect option for combining with, when considering a Bush and Beach vacation.
