Water: Crystal Clear
Mecufi beach is the best wave spot of all the north part of Mozambique with its turquoise crystal clear water. The long and wide beach settles 10 km north of the Baia do Lurio in the proximity of Diamond resort. There is plenty of space to set up kites and go into the water. On good days waves can reach up to 2m in height and stretch long along the beach for long rides, but the spot offers great conditions in all windy periods.
No People on the Spot
Lycra and in colder months (June, July) a shorty can be a good help to keep extra warm, though not necessary.
There are rocks on each side of the beach, better to safely ride in the center where there is plenty of space and a nice sandy bottom.
The area is quite isolated, to have alternative accommodation than the resort the closest area is 20km north on Murrebue beach, where there are several small lodges.
Pemba (Cabo Delgado)
The closest airport is in Pemba. From there you need to drive south on the only coast dirt road for about 25-30 km, passing Murrebue village, before reaching Mecufi municipality.
The easiest access is through the Mecufi Diamond resort. A daily fee can be applied, but will include pool access and the resort offers restaurant and bar service.
