Praia do Xai-Xai is approximately 10 km from the town of Xai-Xai
and 220 km from Maputo.
The massive reef running parallel to the beach provides natural protection against the strong waves at high tide and forms several small pools at low tide.
The spectacular Chongoene reef, which is approximately 70 meters offshore and 3 km long, offers safe swimming and serves as a platform for reef and game fishing.
Chongoene, which is adjacent to Xai-Xai, is known worldwide for its huge barracuda catches as well as a great variety of other game fish.
The coral reefs are wonderful and will introduce you to the untouched wonders of Africa's East Coast marine life, either through scuba diving or snorkeling.
