Activities - Guludo Beach Lodge - Quirimbas Archipelago Scuba Diving - Guludo Beach Lodge Guludo is perfectly positioned to dive some of the best, and most pristine, coral reefs in the world.
Opposite Guludo's calm bay is the Quirimbas Archipelago's fringing reef with breath-taking coral diversity as well as copious schools of game fish, turtles, sharks and, at the right time of year, humpback whales. With vast diving diversity Guludo offers a range of diving from sheltered tranquil coral gardens to drop-offs with strong currents.
Rolas Island Rolas is our most popular activity and it’s not hard to see why. Just a short sail from Guludo, this tiny island is surrounded by crystal clear waters with breath-taking reefs to snorkel and a stunning white sandy peninsular. Local legend says the island is owned by the sacred, resident coconut crabs, the largest crabs in the world, who dictate the weather and the fate of anyone who dares upset them.
During your visit to Rolas you will meet some of the Guludo fishermen who use the island as temporary base and, if you dare, go with “old man coconut crab” into the Rolas Coral Rock Forest to see some of the infamous crabs for yourself.
Elephant Lookout Perched on the top of a rocky hill the peace and beauty of the elephant lookout will take your breath away. This viewpoint is one of the very few places possible to view elephants during the day.
Also, here you are likely to see antelopes, primates, warthogs and, if you’re lucky, some of the large cats. Leaving mid afternoon you can sit back, sip an ice-cool beer, soak in the beauty and watch the sun slowly disappear over the horizon.
Mangrove Paddle Tour Paddle through the mystic mangrove forests
South of Guludo are expansive mangrove forests with endless channels disappearing deep into the forest where birds, crabs and primates live in a peaceful, tidal wonderland.
