Pomene View Lodge Mozambique

Pomene View Lodge, family owned and operated, is situated on a high ridge offering unique panoramic views of a pristine mangrove estuary and the warm Indian Ocean beyond.

Situated in the Province of Inhambane, half way between Vilanculos and Inhambane, accommodation is in the comfort of brick and imported South African thatch chalets which are fully equipped for self catering and serviced daily.

Surf, rock and estuary fishing can be done, while the rest of the family enjoys snorkelling in protected pools, relaxing on the beach or enjoying themselves around the freshwater swimming pool.

Pomene was initially discovered when a ship carrying a valuable cargo of sugar was shipwrecked here and subsequently a road was built to recover the cargo. Remnants of the wreck can still be seen on the beach. There is the ruin of 'The Old Pomene Hotel' on the point of the bay which only ran for 6 years and was abandoned in 1974 during the civil war in Mozambique. It has never been rebuilt.

Pomene is one of the few places in Mozambique where you can see Whale Sharks, manta rays and a number of turtle species right off the point of the Old Hotel. The chalets are comfortable and spacious with the added bonus of being fully equipped and serviced providing a stress-free and homely experience. Being a family run lodge, the service is very personal and hands-on. Pomene is still an untouched piece of paradise – the perfect holiday destination for family and friends to enjoy.

Pomene is renowned for it's outstanding fishing, deep sea, rock & surf and estuarine. There are pristine beaches with safe swimming and snorkelling for the whole family as well as world classed dive sites. There is also a prolific bird life for avid bird watchers.
