Mozambique Dive Trip
Ponta Do Oura

Sample Itinerary

Situated at the southern tip of Mozambique, and just 5 km from the South African border, Ponta Do Oura is Mozambique’s most southerly town and translated into English means “Point of Gold”.

There are many different stories as to the origin of the name, from a sunken ship carrying gold bars to a beautiful golden sunrise. The historical truth might never be known, but the modern day value of what is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled bays in the world, can certainly lay claim to golden treasures.
