Welcome to Pomene View Lodge

General Information

History:
Pomene was initially discovered when a ship carrying a valuable cargo of sugar was shipwrecked here and subsequently a road was built to recover the cargo. Remenants of the wreck can still be seen on the south beach. There is the must-see ruin of 'The Old Pomene Hotel' on the point of the bay which only operated for 6 years and was abandoned in 1974 during the civil war in Mozambique. It has never been rebuilt.

What makes the place special:
Being a family run lodge, the service at Pomene View Lodge is very personal and hands-on. The setting is completely unique, offering tranquility and quietness, a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Pomene is one of the few places in Mozambique where you can see Whale Sharks, manta rays and a number of turtle species right off the point of the Old Hotel. It is the closest point at which the Mozambique channel comes to the shore, therefore excellent for fishing.. Pomene is still an untouched piece of paradise – the perfect holiday destination for family and friends to enjoy.
