About Praia Do Dorado
The quaint little town of Ponta do Ouro is situated in Southern Mozambique, a mere 10 km away from the South African border. Ponto do Ouro or "Point of Gold" gets its name from the fact that early Portuguese explorers were misled by unreliable maps, thinking that gold might be found there.
Upon arrival they found that the dunes were rich in black titanium, and the only gold in the area was the colour of the setting sun shining over the long white beaches. Essentially, this area is an extension of South Africa's Maputaland, but far more pristine. The historical truth might never be known, but the modern day value of what is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt bays in the world can certainly lay claim to golden treasures.
The Praia Do Dorado is situated in the town of Ponto do Ouro, surrounded by sea, sand, dunes, and casuarinas trees, and rated as one of the top 10 attractions in Africa. It is also known as the best resort town in Mozambique. There is a very traditional open-air market, several "cantinas" or little shops, and eager curio sellers who will quench your thirst for shopping before you make your way to one of the rustic restaurants in town.
The Praia Do Dorado house offers two bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a lounge, fully-equipped kitchen, balcony, and amazing sea views. The property has electricity and hot, clean water, as well as a full day cleaning and laundry service. A full day house manager is also available.
