Tofo Beach is a perfect sandy beach located on the outskirts of the charming little seaside town of Tofo.

Here, there are kilometers of soft, delightful sand and inviting bathing water.

Unfortunately, the beach is haunted by a small army of irritating sellers. Cheap bracelets, in particular, are offered, but also coconuts, fruit, and other small items.

In 2 hours, we were approached by AT LEAST 20 sellers. And they are VERY persistent. Even if you lie with your eyes closed, signaling that you want to be left alone, they try to make contact.

The tactic that works best is to ignore them completely. Pretend they are air.

If you start saying no thank you or that you are not interested, or that they should go away, they persist and are not easy to get rid of. Ignore them!

Peace & tranquility. Spectacular diving. Whales. Stars. Sand. Lots of sand. Some very good restaurants and live music. A nice mix of locals and interesting expats.

There is no ATM in Tofo. The closest is a 10 minute taxi / mini bus ride away but almost everywhere excepts cards. Coverage is excellent.

Beach as far as the eye can see, warm and delicious water, a couple of wave breaks and easy access to fresh coconuts and cashews (with a little bartering)

This is a great beach with a great atmosphere. The beach was so full of life and humming with activity. There's lots to do and some great food spots as well.

The vast beach that was almost empty, the long walks you could do without seeing other people. Me and my daughters was there off season and it was lovely. Not too hot and a beautiful place. Loved having a drink in the evening at a beach bar watching the sun disappear. The vendors walking around can be a bit intrusive.

Tofo beach is a wonderful place early morning and late afternoon. During the day it is too hot, though there are Westerners and vendors who are braving the heat. Local fishermen still use the beach for mooring their boats. The waves during high tide are great and good for surfing. Tofo is also a good place for scuba diving.

The ambience of Tofo is perhaps a little bit less appealing as most business (including the market) is geared to tourists. However, on the bright side it means there are also some nice restaurants, cafés, a small Mr. Fresh supermarket and quality accommodation. No ATM in the village. Many places accept credit cards.

Recommended walks:
along the beach to Barra (1 hour and 30 minutes - one way)
along the beach to Tofinho (short walk)

A confluence of people -- sightseers like me, beachgoers on the sand, swimmers in the ocean. Shops and restaurants. Neat area.

I just love the vibe in Tofo! Beach town with lots of fishermen, surfers, divers, tourists and locals all blend in together. Great community spirit.
