PRAIA DO OURO SUL
We are looking forward to welcome you to Praia de Ouro Sul, a secluded, private lodge, situated on the first row of forested dunes in an indigenous coastal forest.
Praia de Ouro Sul is situated on the beach where the South African and Mozambican borders meet. If your idea of an unforgettable holiday demands tropical beaches, white sands, hot island weather, the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and a relaxed atmosphere, you have come to the right place.
Praia de Ouro Sul is situated in the south of Mozambique, five minutes’ drive from the tranquil village of Ponta De Ouro and approximately 40 minutes’ drive from the Kosi Bay border post, less than 400 km north of Durban and 700 km from Johannesburg
Praia de Ouro Sul is the ultimate holiday destination for people looking for stylish and comfortable accommodation in truly unspoilt, remote and tranquil surroundings. Different types and configurations of accommodation is available. We extend a warm welcome to all wedding parties, conference groups & other group bookings , such as fishing or diving groups, and will put together an unforgettable package for the whole group.
We offer a wide variety of activities at the resort itself, and the neighbouring village Ponta De Ouro , which is a mere 10 minutes’ drive away, is world-famous for diving and fishing.
