Kitesurfing at Ponta Do Ouro, Mozambique

Ponta Do Ouro is the southernmost town or village in Mozambique, and is situated just 30 to 40 min drive by 4 x 4 from the Kosi Bay / Ponta do Ouro border post of South Africa. The semi developed Mozambican leisure resort town or village is best known for its miles of pristine white sandy beaches, great scuba diving, fishing and of course kitesurfing.

With near perfect weather all year around, Ponta Do Ouro is a favourite holiday destination for many South Africans. If you are in to kitesurfing, Scuba Diving and / or Deep Sea Fishing, you can’t go wrong in Ponta Do Ouro. No matter what the weather condition are, each day should be great for one of those adventure activities. If the wind is blowing, bust out your kiteboarding gear, if there is no wind, but perfect sunshine, you should have great scuba diving conditions, and if there is no wind but the weather is overcast, this should make for a great day of deep sea fishing.

It’s a win win situation in our opinion… ;-)

Just 7 km north of Ponta Do Ouro lies Ponta Malongane. Ponta Malongane is much quieter than Ponta Do Ouro, and is situated closer to the famous scuba diving reefs, so this make for a great alternative dive destination. The Ponta Malongane to Ponta Do Ouro downwind run is famous in the kiteboarding community, and every kiteboarder should definitely experience this when visiting the area… If you are looking for an even greater challenge, try starting from Ponta Mamoli, which lies another 10 km to the north of Ponta Malongane. This is a 17 km long downwind dash along some of the most beautiful African coastline you can imagine.

  1. Ah, what an epic day of kitesurfing in Ponta today! This is what kiteboarding wet dreams are made of…

    A solid 20 to 25 knots of wind that was as constant as a hairdryer. Chrystal clear blue waters and hardly a kitesurfer around… ;-)

    Thanks Adrian and Felicity for making it all happen!

    JP, if you ever read this by chance, I saw you and your mates coming past on your downwind run from Ponta Malongane to Ponta Do Ouro. It must have been insane!

  2. Dean Bottcher says:

    Ponta must be the best toeside wave riding option we have closest to South Africa. As a surf spot it is well documented. Get on those same long walls with your kite and you will be dazzled.

  3. Adrian Breetzke says:

    Steady 15-16 knots at Ponto all day on Saturday – great fun had by the 5 or 6 guys on the water….can’t wait to join them…hopefully soon !

    • Awesome Adrian! Thanks for the update…

      You guys really have it good there. Even my friend Rob from Ocean2Air was there for a week the other day, and is raving about the kiting at Ponta. We will definitely plan more trips to your neck of the woods…

      Keep at it mate, before you know it you will be tearing up the bay big time!

  4. Going there is coming Thursday for the first time.
    I’ve heard so much about it, now it is time to make the dream a reality.
    A good mix of moderate S & N winds are forecast during our 5 day stay which is perfect. That way I’ll get to experience the difference options on offer. I will kite, SUP and windsurf depending on the conditions.
    I’ll let you know how it was when I return.

    • Hey Basil,

      Great to hear from you mate! You’re going to love Ponta do Ouro (and Ponta Malongane). Try and get a downwinder in between the two…

      We were up there again in August and it was another epic trip!

      Wishing you perfect winds, and we look forward to hearing all about it.
