Linga Linga is the tiny peninsula that juts into the Inhambane Bay and here on the water's edge is an African luxury villa that really is something special. The villa is set on the beach, just a stone's throw from the warm tropical waters of the Indian Ocean.

Castelo do Mar is an up-market self catering villa, which boasts six elegant rooms, all tastefully decorated and equipped with air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, luxurious linen and sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. The villa also boasts a well stocked library, a games room with a pool table, black jack table, and a dart board, all with exquisite views of the bay. The kitchen is fully equipped with top of the range gas cookers, deep fryers and grillers.

After a hard day relaxing at the water's edge or enjoying the many activities on offer from spectacular game fishing to scuba diving, why not enjoy a sundowner on the veranda whilst doing a little dolphin spotting (they are plentiful) or if you are really fortunate a dugong!

We look forward to welcoming you to Castelo Do Mar, the luxury African holiday villa of your dreams!
