About 80km north of Maputo. From Maputo, right before you arrive in Manhiça, turn right at the "Maragra" sign. You have to go through the Maragra sugar factory, following the "Calanga" signs. If you can't find any signs, just go towards the ocean, the beach is hundreds of kilometers long, you can't miss the waves! 4x4 required...

 Additional Information

It's a good, consistent surf spot, the closest one to Maputo. When the conditions are right you can get some epic waves, from big barrels to nice walls, and it gets a lot of morning offshore winds


Don't pollute the beach...
