Paindane is a beautiful gem in Mozambique and is 500 kilometers from Maputo and 30 kilometers south of Inhambane amongst plantations of Coconut palms and miles of pristine white sandy beaches. The self catering basic rustic chalets and campsites on the dunes are a stones throw from the beach.

Possibly the best feature of Paindane is the reef which protrudes northwards about eight hundred meters, running parallel with the beach, forming a natural bay protected from strong ocean currents and waves. This bay is perfect for launching boats as well as being ideal for swimming and snorkeling.



Paindane bay is also the site of a coral garden, well sought after as one of the best on the African coastline. The variety of soft and hard coral found there display a multitude of colours which have to be seen to be believed. The coral garden lies within the famous lighthouse reef in roughly two to three meters of water, and on clear day visibility extends to as much as forty meters, with vast species of tropical fish to be seen. One of the other well known reefs in the area, Manta reef is unique and has been rated as the best worldwide, also providing divers with excellent visibility and literally hundreds of mantas which frequent the reef. Other world famous reefs nearby include Kingfish, and Jangamo or Guinjata Bay which are well known for spotting Whale shark and schools of dolphins.
