Traditionally, Christmas often brings to mind snow outside, a warm fireplace and, of course, Santa with his troupe of reindeer. While this cozy scene certainly sounds inviting, we truly believe that you can’t beat a beach Christmas.

Imagine waking up on Christmas Day to the sound of crashing waves and a sumptuous brunch on a breezy outdoor deck; Boxing Day spent lazing on the beach, catching a tan and swimming off the overindulgence of the day before; New Year’s Eve spent clinking cocktails with the glistening ocean as backdrop. That’s how White Pearl Resorts do the Festive Season.

This year, we’ve got all our usual traditions lined up and more. See the schedule below to find out what’s on offer:


Meet in the Boma for a traditional dancing and drumming performance and some signature cocktails, followed by a special tasting menu in our Restaurant.

TIME:  From 17h00

CHRISTMAS DAY FEAST | 25 December 2017

Chef will treat guests to a special menu inspired by a fusion of traditional Christmas dishes and Mozambican flavours. Enjoy complimentary sparkling wine with your evening dinner.
