Castelo Do Mar is located in the beautiful Linga Linga peninsula in the Inhambane province,
The peninsula fairly unknown and although it is accessible by 4×4 on rough road, it is easier by boat from Inhambane or Maxixe.The Linga Linga area has much to offer in addition to the world class fishing and diving, including excellent birding in the mangroves, a resident dugong “sirenian”, pristine tidal islets and long stretches of deserted beach. The peninsula is often referred to by the locals as an island because waters can rise over the sands at high tides, making access by road impossible. Castelo do Mar, the Lodge, is of historical significance and has preserved remains of a Norwegian whaling station that dates back to around 1911 to 1915.
