Water: Crystal Clear
Description of Murrebue Lagoon (Mozambique)
Beautiful Crystal Clear Water lagoon. It is tide dependent and according to the tide, it presents different conditions. In low tide you ride in flat shallow water for kilometers, surrounded by beautiful sandbanks which occasionally can be fun even to fly over. In high tide the water becomes choppy, but it is possible to ride 3 km out to the reef where there is a safe wake break and you can have a good wave session. So conditions good for any type of style.

No People on the Spot
All tide levels with different conditions (chop - flat - wave)
Shorty for the cold season (from June to September)
At low tide, there are areas with a completely safe sandy bottom. Some spots have rocks and around these areas there it is plenty of sea urchins, but they are very clearly visible and distinct from white sand areas. At high tide, the bottom is not reachable so no particular dangers.
Pemba is the nearest city. There you can find cheaper accommodations than on the beach, but it is recommendable to stay in Murrebue if you want to have a kite vacation. There are some night club and restaurants in the city, especially on Wimby Beach, that can be visited in the evening. If you want to travel around it is worth a visit to IBO Island and the Quirimbas. Pemba has some portuguese ruins and typical markets that can be visited in half day.
Pemba (Cabo Delgado)
How to get There
Drive out of Pemba past the airport in direction of Mecufi, After 1 km past the crossroad to Mecufi hit the road down to the beach. There are several places to stop along the beach, the best is at Il Pirata, where you can also stay or just have great Italian food at their restaurant. There are different accomodation places on the beach including the same Pirata.
To reach the spot it is needed 4x4 car. Various places to stop and a couple of restaurants on the beach to have good lunch in between the sessions.

Video on the Kite Spot
This amazing video was made by Charlotte Consorti and Bruno Dubosq during their visit to Murrebue lagoon in 2015. The video, part of their 'KITESURFING PARADISE' series on youtube, shows the beauty of the lagoon and its changing colors and nuances during the different tide moments.
