SKY ISLAND RESORT is built on top of a 70m high coastal ridge in Southern Mozambique. With two launch sites facing our two predominant winds, one facing North-East and the other facing East, the site is suitable for pilots of all skill levels and is the ideal site for beginners. Our prime flying season is from January to May; with March being optimum where you can expect flying 8 out of 10 days. Our restaurant overlooks the East take-off site and has breathtaking views of the ocean! We offer tandem flights in season and we are open to solo pilots who are qualified.
We are situated in Ponta Malongane which is a lovely small village where you can shop for local arts & crafts, indulge in local cuisine and experience African culture first-hand.
Book a scuba dive and explore some of the world’s most magnificent scuba diving reefs!
Experience a memorable interaction swim with wild dolphins by going on an Ocean Safari. All dolphin interaction is respectful and conscious on the dolphin's terms and nature's conditions :)
SKY ISLAND RESORT is located right above the Ponta Malongane bay. There is a scenic foot path that leads down to the main beach where you can enjoy snorkelling in our natural rock pools during low tide.
Not only do we have a great swimming beach, but it stretches as far as the eye can see in both directions. At low tide it is protected by the reef and forms a calm bay with easy and safe swimming conditions for all ages and at high tide it is good fun playing in the waves :) The beach is also suitable for surfing, kite-surfing, fishing and snorkelling. Or if you just want to relax and enjoy the view, you can hire a gazebo or an umbrella for the day. You can even indulge in a full body massage from one of the local ladies!
For the guests who like to be more active... we have archery, badminton and volleyball. Fun for the whole family!
No costs involved.
From August to November is WHALE SEASON! Humpback Whales migrate past Ponta Malongane and you can watch them play whilst enjoying a meal at our restaurant.
SKY ISLAND RESORT is set in an indigenous dune forest and grassland. For the nature enthusiasts you will love our walking trails where you will see our diverse species of plants, animals and beautiful bird-life.
