Goody villas and Morrungulo are similar in a way; large lawn where you park the car right at the beach. Both have good ablutions and a pool.
We preferred Morrungulo over Goody; grass was better maintained, you have a private lapa, and the trees and beach are cleaner and more beautiful.
Goody; You can walk to a restaurant closeby, and towards the centre of town (if you like to walk, still ~4km). Good phone reception. Mz 2166 per night 2 adults 1 kids.

They asked for 600 pppn and nothing for our 4 year old daughter.

We were not able to get a discount even though the camp was damaged by the recent cyclone. The pool was not usable, the beach was filled with sea weed and the guys were chopping up fallen trees and loading all that at the back of a truck.
Not the calm and relaxing experience we would have liked but I must be great the rest of the time.

We had very pleasant stay.
Pleased to say that the gates were locked and they had good security.

Echo most of the other comments.
I have to add that we were robbed last night! Last robbery was just two weeks ago and now again but management is not taking appropriate measures to improve security. As we arrieved, 7 nights ago, sliding door to the beach and the gate to the beach were wide open. Fence to the beach does not deserve the name as it is in a really bad state. Thin wire will not prevent criminals from comming in. One big gap in the fence I closed with some laying around barbe wire. Guard was somewhere sleeping and invisible. I tried to reach management to do something, but wring call. No security upgrades yet! I was knocked unconscious when I climbed down the ladder - the robbers ran away. Although this is a very nice place, if security is a problem then its a no go for us. So if you want to visit this camp/lodge, be warned.

Very nice Campsite directly at the beach. The Ablutions are clean most of the time (we stayed 7 nights).
Problem:
At New Years Eve our neighbors got robbed. Some guys opened the tents and stole their Smartphones. Although there was „Security“ at Goody Villas. The guy was sleeping and not seen.
The Fence is old and not a real problem for „bad guys“. Be careful and prepare yourself.

Lovely campsite by the sea under coconut palms and plenty of trees. Took a dhow trip run by Lourenza out to Paradise Island. Came reccommended by the guy looking after the camp. Lourenza was drunk and useless. Arrived straight from the shebeen with beers and a bottle of whiskey. We loved our time on tbe island but definately stay away from Lourenza.

Probably one of our most favorite campsites in Mozambique! Lovely swimmingpool and direct access to the beach. We camped right at the fence for ocean view but be aware that there’s a water tap here that is commonly used by passing locals. Showers are nice and hot, only thing missing would be a kitchen/braai area. Vodacom has great reception, Movitel not so much. Do yourself a favour and arrange a trip to Paradise Island with a local fisherman.

Lovely grassy campsites under shady trees. Access to the beach. We stayed three nights. Peaceful. Quite a distance from the village but fish, prawns and crayfish available from local fishermen.

Spent 5 nights here, very peaceful surrounding, ‘drinking’ water was clouded, didn’t drink. Staff friendly. Showers super. Leafy, grass, powered sites. Some chalets on offer too. All in all we would recommend it. Adult 500 pppn off season, kids 450 pppn.

What a stunning campsite. Right on the beach with 3 sites on the beach front. Electricity and water easy accessible at camp. They said water is good to drink, borehole water.
They do have a swimming pool as well even though we only went swimming in the ocean.
Locals will try to sell you fresh seafood (highly recommended) or snorkeling trips, we organized our day trip through the lodge next door, paid 4000MTS per person for a full day trip.

Beautiful and well maintained spot right at the beach, as described. Good place to rest and enjoy for a while. They charged us 500M pppn. You can walk along the beach 2min, just 2 doors down to the very decent Brisa Mar restaurant/bar.

As previously described: fantastic campsite and sparkling clean. We spent 12 days here. The campsite and the driveway from Inhassoro are also suitable for BigRig (we are 3.8m high). The first km is paved, then a sandy driveway, but doable without any problems.

We are the ‚other overlanding truck‘ that nickianddave are mentioning (see below) … and we fully and wholeheartedly support their comments!
Goody Villas was our first and by far the best camp (out of six) we have been to in MOZ! We stayed for six nights … and with hindsight, we should have stayed even longer!
Highly recommended!
We paid Mt 1000 for two adults/night … which we find is very attractive.

we stayed 5 nights here and loved it. superb location right on a long, white sand beach with safe and easy swimming. fantastic ablutions with powerful hot showers, grassy pitches and a clean, well maintained swimming pool. it should be noted that we were the only campers for 2 nights and just 1 other overlanding truck for the other 3 nights so we felt very spoilt but I still think this would be a fabulous campsite even I'd it is busier.

Best campsite in Mozambique! Stunning views, clean ablution, restaurant next door and a wonderful beach right in front of you! It’s magic. Even for kids there is a trampoline and big swimming pool! This campsite was truly one of his kind.

Loved the camp site. Parked direct at the beach front. Amazing hot showers. Clean toilets. Electricity at site. BBQ grills available. Trash disposal and friendly staff. What more can you ask for?

Report Check-In

Excellent campsite ! If you're coming from southern Mozambique you know how rare it is to have a seafront campsite. 90% of the campsites we saw/been in Moz are behind a dune or far from the beach, so enjoy thoroughly this one! 😅 Excellent shower, great pool, electricity at spots. Very unstable internet coverage with Vodacom. 600 MZN ppn.

We tried tp phone them but phone number on website is not correct. We therefore did not go because of experience of last post.

Stayed here for 11 nights. Beautiful campsite next to the beach. Nice breeze that keeps the mosquitoes low. Be aware to give your car a proper wash before you leave to rinse of the salt. Local fishermen came nearly daily to offer squid or fish. Showers, Toilets etc. are cleaned daily and are in good condition! 600 Metical per Person

Beautiful campsite right on the beach. Accessible with a normal car and normal caravan or motorhome. We loved the site right by the fence. The sea breeze helped a lot to keep cool. Neat ablutions.

Report Check-In

Looks really good. But Sasol has booked out the whole campsite for their workers so not able to camp here for the time being. Perhaps call ahead of your visit. Alternative camping option is a few KM north called Estrela Da Monelise also very nice but they are currently rebuilding a few things so could be disrupted

Great campsite! Grassed sites under the trees. Beautiful sea views. The ablutions are clean and spotless. The water is lovely and hot. There is a great place for doing dishes. The pool is clean and has deck chairs to sit on and enjoy the sun. We were not bothered by any hawkers.

Beautiful campsite, however it can get extremely windy when parked right at the beach. Ablutions clean but not private. Paid 600 pppn. Reception gave us a number to call if we wanted to arrange a boat to islands (due to low season boat would have cost 14000 MT for 2 people). It would have been cheaper in Vilanculos. Site is very quiet, you don't get bothered by vendors or anyone. Bar in the lodge next door looks nice but service extremely slow.

Nice grassy campsite with shaded areas offering camping close to the beach out of season. Ablutions nice and clean and pool was refreshing. Nice restaurant “Brisa Mar” close by offering full menu and bar. Price as given below. Reception arranged a day-trip for us to Paradise Island where we spend a full day snorkeling in amazing setting. A must do!

Beautiful campsite.
Huge grassy flat area, with lots of trees for shade.
Right on the beach and Can see the ocean from your bed in your camper.
Lovely clean, blue swimming pool.
Toilets are the best we’ve seen in a long long time, clean, stylish and with hot water!!!
A little more that what we usually pay for camping, but definitely worth it...

Very nice green campsite with friendly staff.

They must be use to South Africans camping there for long holidays. The owner was rude and arrogant, when we kindly ask if they give some kind of discount for overlanders wanting to stay for 4 or more days.

Unfortunately it spoiled the experience quite a bit.

As written before huge campsite with all the amenities you can ask for! We stayed there during the off-season and had the place almost to ourselves and we stayed 4 days because it was so chilled! We met interesting co-travellers and we had a lot of fun together. Private ablutions, super clean, hot showers and good pressure. 600MZN ppn, boat trip to St. Catharina island including lunch was 3500MZN pp and can be organised by the reception. Cute and friendly dogs around the beach as well.

There is not much to say more, than what was said before. The nicest, cosiest and cleanest Campsite, ever! As it was low season we even had our own bathroom. The outside kitchen also is very convenient, if you have your own cooker. PERFECT

Now 600mts pppn, all year. Only a few vehicles so each assigned an ablution unit—10 units.

Nice place with grassie and shady pitches.
If you want, you can park next to the beach.
In high season it will be busy.
Price now is 400Mt pp.
Beach was nice with white sand, but there was, because of the season, sea weeds on it. But not to much polution like bottles etc on the beach.
About 100 meter south by beach there is a bar/restaurant. To do some shopping, you can walk north by beach for 1 hour. Maybe you will see fishermen pulling the nets to shore full with fish they sell directly on the beach.
Overall, we liked the place.

The price has been raised to 400 Mt.
We do love this place! Garbage emptied daily, braai cleaned and bathrooms cleaned daily. Quiet and well kept.

Same as stated. Price M300,- pppn.
The WIFI at the restaurant(walk to the right when at the beach) was indeed strong.

But the staff was a bit weird. We asked if there was WIFI available: only for guests and after 5 minutes of thinking the waiter told us we could use the WIFI for M100,-. So we asked if we still have to pay the fee if we have dinner there. Again, after 5 minutes of thinking he said we should.
Very strange it took him so long to lie about the price lol.
