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.

Other info

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.
