Macaneta Holiday Resort has some of the safest beaches and stunning scenery in Mozambique.


The resort is well known for the warm hospitality and excellent fresh seafood prepared in the typical Mozambique restaurant. You can relax on the beach, ocean or lakeside, you decide.


Situated in Marracuene just  2-3 hours drive from Nelspruit - makes it a popular jaunt for a weekend Mozambique getaway.  

The resort is positioned in Marraceune, a quaint old fishing village, between the Inkomati River and Indian Ocean - those after a sense of adventure will enjoy the ferry ride across the river to the resort where they can then unwind and enjoy the atmosphere and environment - the beaches are raked to perfection

The resort also offers fishing charters as well as diving and snorkelling at nearby locations.


Guests are housed in basic, rustic rondavels (definitely no frills included) which are situated either on the river or on the beach.  These rondavels can accommodate between 2 and 4 people with private bathrooms, lounge area and small semi-equippped kitchen with stove, sink and crockery/cutlery on request. 

The campsite at Macaneta has basic facilities for those hardened and well-equipped campers.

C. Van Der Schyff, South Africa, January 2012

We loved it, on one day we had no water, pumps were fixed, and only 3 chalets had hot water, the others had to shower in cold water. The road to the resort was a total mess, mud and puddles all the way, otherwise our stay was great, the staff were friendly. It was great.

A. de Villiers, South Africa, 7 April 2010

It was great!  My we had such fun! The hospitality, the staff,  the beauty of Mozambique, will definitely go back! Though the language in Mozambique is an issue, people go out of their way to be helpful.  The food, mmmm... yummy... the prawns were very delicious and the abundance of fish on the island, I think we had fish almost on daily basis.  I speak of Mozambique and Macaneta Lodge with a smile and would definitely recommend it to all my friends.  Thanks to everyone who made this trip a possibility and a pleasant one.

From the outskirts of Maputo, follow the EN1 North.  Continue on this road until you reach a village with the name 'Maracuene'. On the right hand side of the road, you will see a big bill board (with a Landrover advertisement on it).  Turn right at the bill board and drive over a railway line until you get to the ferry. Board the ferry with your vehicle which will take you across the Inkomati River. When you have safely crossed the river, drive a further 6km on sand road until you get a T-junction (of sorts) where you must keep right for about 2km. Macaneta Holiday Resort is at the end of this road.
