Things to do

Fishing

Paindane is a paradise for all deep sea anglers with unrivaled catches of gamefish and billfish with the ideal fishing area only 300 meters from the launch. Pinnacles with shoals of monster kings, Cuta, Tuna and all the other Pelagic species are waiting for you.

Rock & Surf

This facet brings you the best of both worlds. Land a 20Kg Cuta or King from the Lighthouse reef at spring low tide, cast into 20 meters of deep blue water where anything can happen... or take a drive on the beach and choose a spot for yourself that will produce big Kings, Queens, Pompano and Bonefish on light tackle.

Snorkeling

The Paindane Reef offers the best snorkeling sites in Mozambique... 

With many world renowned reefs within easy striking distance, Paindane rates as one of the best dive spots on the African East Coast. Manta reef is unique and has been rated as the best worldwide, with excellent visibility and virtually hundreds of mantas that have made this reef their home.

The coral garden lies inside the Paindane reef in 2 - 3 meters of water, and is rated by Mike Slater (Guide to Mozambique) as one of the very best snorkeling spots of the African East Coast. On a good day, visibility extends to as much as forty meters, with thousands of tropical species to be viewed by the entire family.

Jetski, Hobbycat, Paddleski and boardsailing enthusiasts enjoy the safe launch at Paindane and the fact that you sail directly into the backline and deep waters of the Mozambique Channel, without any surf to contend with.

For those who are not into water activities, long walks along the pristine sun bleached beaches, shell hunting, swimming in the warm tropical waters, tanning in the basking sun, or sipping an ice cold beer in the beach bar can all be enjoyed. 

Paindane Fishing & Game Fishing Charters

Paindane resort is situated direct opposite the famous Paindane Reef. The reef creates a very safe and easy launching opportunity and fishing direct behind the reef is excellent.

Paindane Whale Beach Walk  

NOT TO BE MISSED!

The greatest show on earth is between Paindane and Dongane along the coast (July to mid September). The whale migration you cannot afford to miss. Whales come up to the back line of the waves.

A night walk might give you the opportunity to see turtles laying eggs on the beach.
See the coastal night life first hand.
