Morrungulo is a secluded resort on the Mozambique Coast away from towns and cities.
Situated in a protected bay, with shaded, grass covered camping sites this is a welcome change to other campsites along this coast that are usually sand only.
The warm waters of the Indian Ocean makes it very pleasant for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving, even in winter.
There is an entrance from the resort on to the beach if you want to launch a boat. Fishing is good here, as it is all along the Mozambican coastline.
If you are not into camping, there are also thatched beach front chalets to stay in.
Enjoy the pictures...
|The road to Morrungulo is a good sand road. I imagine that in the rainy season it could pose a few problems for ordinary vehicles. At the time that we were there, you could use any vehicle to reach the resort|
|As you cross the last hill you are greeted with this lovely view of the Indian Ocean through the Coconut Palm Trees.|

|Fresh bread advertised in 26 languages! Keep your eye open for this bakery on your left hand side as you travel towards the coast.|
|The bakery oven is heated by burning coconut husks....|
|...and here the bread is baking in the oven! Don't let looks deceive you. Even though the surroundings are humble these people really know how to bake the most delicious Portuguese Bread.|
|You can also stock up here with charcoal which burns well. Makes a good Braai (Barbecue).|
|Some local kids on their way to school stopped to greet us. The children are keen to learn but there is a dire shortage of teaching aids. If you ever visit Mozambique , bring along some books, pencils and crayons for the children rather than giving them sweets.(They do ask for sweets first but then for writing material! Kids will be kids!) We have seen classes conducted where they were actually writing the sand due to the lack of anything else to use.|
|The entrance to Morrungulo...|
|...is situated in a lush tropical garden.|
|The campsite is on grass under shady indigenous trees and coconut palms. Take care not to camp or park your car directly under a coconut tree as a coconut can cause quite a bit of damage if it should fall on something!|
|Just the place to set up camp...|
|...and relax with family and friends.|
|A picture taken from the beach towards the campsite which is tucked away among the trees. It is very sheltered and even if the wind blows on the beach, you can hardly feel it in the resort itself.|
|White sand, blue sky, warm ocean...here you can laze away to your heart's content. Swimming, fishing, playing, strolling along the beach...bring your family, they will love it!|
|Another picture showing the wide beach from the high water mark to the trees. And look! No over crowded beaches! This is truly paradise!|
|We supported John's Bakery which is walking distance from the resort...|
|...where once, again you can buy freshly baked bread, daily.|
|Just outside the gates of the resort, you will find this local artist, displaying his ware.|
