best place to stay in tofo - Tofo accomodation beach

Finding the best Tofo accommodation was our next step.

We researched online for the best place to stay in Tofo and a few hostels and dated guesthouses came up in the results. 

Upon further research, we found a much newer property that had excellent reviews and the price was actually cheaper than these old hostels. It was definitely the best place to stay in Tofo Mozambique.

I want to tell you about this beautiful property that we stayed at during our relaxing break at Tofo Beach.

There are so many things we enjoyed about our 5-night stay at Turtle Cove Lodge and why we think it is the best Tofo accommodation. I know, this place just sounds like it’s going to be expensive – but it’s actually very affordable.

The price is the same here per night for a private room with ensuite as it was for hostels that have been around for many years.

Best Tofo Accommodation and you can even do yoga here!

In addition to that, Turtle Cove Lodge is also THE PLACE where you can come to get your yogi on. Yes, they have yoga classes each morning and anybody can join. Guests of the lodge are offered a discount on these classes; from memory, I think a class is around $8.

Another reason why we thought, wow this is really the best place to stay in Tofo.

The lodge has a very welcoming living area with large sofas to chill out on, nice tables to sit at when you need to get work done, and a fantastic wifi connection. We enjoyed just sitting here and writing; there was such a great atmosphere.

The food is wonderful here

The restaurant is open all day and the menu offers some delicious local dishes, my favourite. We also ate fresh fish and the popular peri-peri grilled chicken, this plate is always a good choice in Mozambique. They cater very well to vegetarians and vegans here and the fruit smoothies were fantastic. 

We tried some other places to eat in the small town of Tofo, however, it’s clear that the best food was from the restaurant at our lodge.

In fact, the prices were cheaper here too; another reason why this is the best place to stay in Tofo Beach.
