Paindane Beach Resort is situated 28 km South of Inhambane and is nestled amongst plantations of Coconut palms and miles of sun-bleached beaches The self catering chalets and campsites on the dunes are a stones throw from the beach. On selected campsites baraccas are available for hire. The baraccas are cool traditional shelters with modern clean ablutions and electrical plug points as well as water.
The outstanding element of Paindane is the reef which protrudes north approximately 800 meters parallel to the beach, which forms a natural bay which is protected from the destruction of powerful ocean currents and waves. This bay is ideal for the launching boats as well as bathing.
Paindane bay is home to a coral garden, acclaimed to be one of the best on the African coast. The variety of soft and hard coral boast an array of colours that must be seen to be believed. The abundance of hundreds of species of tropical fish that adorn this coral reef makes Paindane unique, and a must for all snorkelers and divers. The natural bay is an ideal playground for all water sport enthusiasts.

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 AND 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.
DIVING AND SNORKELING
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 lighthouse 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.

Poor value for money. Chalets very basic. Very Afrikaans. Unfriendly crowd. Better accommodation around the area.
