White Pearl Resorts, Mozambique
Tumbling much further down Mozambique’s coastline (about 60 miles south of the capital, Maputo and almost on the border with South Africa), White Pearl is situated on a magnificent private white sandy beach in Ponta Mamoli on the south east coast of Mozambique.
Here, the landscape is much wilder and the swells can pound the shores but White Pearl nestles in a cool, sheltered bay where the clear turquoise waters are warmed by the Indian Ocean current moving south from the equator. This coast is unlike any other in Mozambique and getting to White Pearl is all part of the adventure! From Maputo, take a 45 minute light aircraft flight over the remote dune bushland and spectacular coastal scenery (including the Maputo Elephant Reserve) to Ponto do Ouro where a 4x4 awaits for the exhilarating journey (also about 45 minutes) through local villages to the resort.
White Pearl Resorts
There are 15 Pool Suites, each poised on timber stilts with ocean views and six Beach Pool Suites which enjoy a prime location on the beachfront. All have a private plunge pool on the deck and all have been sensitively designed so as to take full advantage of their beautiful setting. The style is one of cool, clean contemporary lines – a look inspired by this breathtakingly striking coastal setting. Open the glass doors to hear the waves crashing on the shoreline and feel the sea breeze as it drifts through the air and embraces the relaxed informality of this magical, still relatively undiscovered, coastal retreat.
Elegant beach chic best describes the restaurant where, by candlelight, you can enjoy distinct local flavours which celebrate the bounty of the sea, while breakfast is a delicious affair of freshly baked pastries, mezze platters laden with fruit and other delectable treats. Beach picnics can be arranged too. The service is warm and charming and the staff’s sense of pride in their fascinating Mozambican heritage is endearingly apparent. There’s a glamorous Beach Bar where you can enjoy tapas and light snacks with chilled wine, or swim up to the contemporary Pool Bar for an exotic cocktail!
The large rim-flow swimming pool boasts four poster day beds on the pool deck and spa treatments are also available. Those feeling active can go diving, horse riding and snorkelling with bottlenose dolphins. From July to November, humpback whales visit the coast on their annual migration and between November and Feburary, Loggerhead and Leatherback Turtles head to this stretch of coast to lay their eggs. White Pearl easily combines with a safari in the Sabi Sands or Madikwe Game Reserves.
