All About Malongane Beach Resort and the little village of Ponta Malongane
A spectacular venue, which can only be described as a little gem tucked away between the forest and the ocean. The resorts run alongside the ocean, one kilometre in length. This beach-front resort has been around for many years and is loved and very well known by all devoted scuba divers. It is surrounded by several well-kept reefs. The resort consists of a famous upper deck bar – with the most spectacular view over the ocean. During the boogy we convert this deck to our second dance floor, showcasing some sexy doef doef. Camping at this resort is very comfortable as far as camping goes – since the entire resort has an abundance of large shady trees, soft sand – conducive to barefoot walking for your entire stay there and more than enough ablution facilities strategically placed throughout the resort. A small canteen / shop to buy milk, eggs, ice, drinking water, and their delectable freshly baked local bread “pao”. A limited amount of accommodation is available at the resort, varying in size and style. The dive centre forms the “hub” of our event. The gathering point every day for dive meetings, the place where our workshop presenters meet with all those interested in participating.
Guests must park in the designated areas only; we request that you do not park on the grass. If there are any problems please contact the reception or the resort’s management.
