Murrebue is a remote and spectacularly gorgeous beach on the northern-most shores of Mozambique. Uncrowded and pristine, it’s the perfect place for relaxation and soaking up the Mozambican sun.
Murrebue is a long and beautiful stretch of beach approximately 25 kilometres south of Pemba, the capital city of the Cabo Delgado province of Mozambique. It is virtually an undiscovered piece of paradise, with soft sandy shores that are lapped by clear, warm lagoon waters. We say undiscovered because it is not overcrowded with tourists, the beaches and oceans are never filled up with swimmers and the village is a little and peaceful place that remains undisturbed.
The ideal wind and sea conditions cause Murrebue to be a great place for kite surfing. In fact, it is often described as one of the best of the lesser-known kite surfing destinations in the world. Since it’s not overtaken by masses of surfing experts, you will find yourself learning the sport in blissful peace and have the whole ocean to yourself. Here you can learn the art of kiteboarding from one of the schools in the area, and it doesn’t matter if it’s your first time. You will learn how to read the waves and the wind, as the conditions are ever changing, and feel the exhilaration of flying over the sea. There isn’t a more beautiful spot in Mozambique to travel the waters on a breeze.
Alternatively, you may find yourself strolling the white sands, enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and watching the birds circling the skies. Honeymooners will certainly find romance in the air as the endless beaches unfold before them! A little past the sand dunes is also a gorgeous freshwater lake where pelicans, storks and herons can be seen. Bring a picnic and spend an hour or so here watching the birds in their natural environment.
A couple more things to do in Murrebue include kayaking on the calm waters of the ocean. Once again, no professional experience of this sport is required to get out on the sea and enjoy yourself. In addition, don’t forget to spend some time in the evenings appreciating the amazing star-filled southern skies, and even get close-up views of the night-time spectacle through the lodge’s telescope. If you happen to arrive over a time when it’s full moon, you are also in for a gorgeous sight as the huge red moon lifts itself above the ocean.
If you are planning a trip to the Cabo Delgado province of Mozambique, consider staying in Murrebue, especially if you love peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The privacy of the area makes Murrebue an ideal destination for couples or honeymooners who wish to connect and spend time together; however, it is also fantastic for families who want ample space to themselves on the beach.

There are few options for accommodation in Murrebue, and this is perhaps partly the reason why it is such a wonderfully tranquil place to be. We recommend Ulala Lodge, a beautiful gem right on the beach and with every amenity you could desire whilst on holiday or honeymoon. You can choose a twin or double room, a large but cosy chalet or a bungalow on stilts (ideal for romance!). Each room at the lodge is beautifully decorated and designed for absolute comfort. We love this lodge because it has also been designed with a ‘green’ attitude, saving water and generating its own electricity, and it employs only local people who are really keen to keep their customers happy. The lodge offers a stunning restaurant that serves up delicious meals from locally sourced ingredients.
Another reason why we have selected Ulala Lodge as the best in Murrebue is because of all the activities you can arrange with them. Besides fun on the water, you can take a tour of Pemba and go snorkelling or scuba diving. Pemba has excellent places to dive that are abundant in marine life. When placing yourself in Murrebue, you are also not far from the lovely Quirimbas National Park and its islands, in particular the famous Ibo Island. The national park includes eleven of the islands that make up the Quirimbas Archipelago, and they are superb areas for snorkelling and diving. Their coral reefs ensure that there are always many types of fish and other sea creatures about.
