From the Kosi-Bay border post, take any of the dirt roads to Ponta. Rule of thumb is to keep right. The easiest route however is to drive north until you get to the airfield and then turn right to Ponta.

In town drive straight past the market until you reach the campsite, and pass it on your left. Mar-e-Sol is 500m down the road.
