Take a boat trip from Maputo harbor for the day and go snorkeling, sunbathe or eat amazing seafood at the local restaurants. Do yourself a favor and visit Inhaca, you won't be disappointed.

Loved the island and its people. Beautiful water for swimming. Used the ferry.The ferry advantage is the price (400mt) and the disadvantage is the time it takes(+-3hrs). Not good for day visitors as tou dont get enough time to explore yhe island

I travelled to Inhaca and very few people know this island as well as Piri Piri. Vergil will take you around in his Land Rover to discover the island. We went up to the lighthouse and the reefs. Safe and highly recommended!
