Linga Linga is the tiny peninsula that juts into the Inhambane Bay and here on the water's edge is an African luxury villa that really is something special. The villa is set on the beach, just a stone's throw from the warm tropical waters of the Indian Ocean. Castelo do Mar has six elegant rooms, all tastefully decorated and equipped with air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, luxurious linen and sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. The villa also boasts a well stocked library, a games room with a pool table, black jack table, dart board and a fully stocked bar with exquisite views of the bay. This luxury African villa, however is probably best known for its exquisite cuisine. From the large villa dining room to al fresco on the beach with the waves lapping your chair, dining is definitely an unforgettable occasion. After a hard day relaxing at the water's edge or enjoying the many activities on offer from spectacular game fishing to scuba diving, why not enjoy a sundowner on the veranda whilst doing a little dolphin spotting (they are plentiful) or if you are really fortunate a dugong!
