A couple hours ferry from Maputo lay this wonderful tropical island. Suitable for all budget, with small luxury resort to local inexpensive rooms. You can't go wrong. Visit by foot, or hire a transport to the various attractions of the island. Great spot for diving.

nice boat trip, or plane, enjoy the nature environment, since coral and exotic fish diving, explore a small village without fake issues, simple food by simple hands

Very nice beach. The mooring area was too crowded but with 10’ walk you can be in a fantastic place alone. If you have time go to the canal and you will have the opportunity to see the open ocean. Fantastic!

To get the most from this very cool little island. There are things to do and see on all sides. There are waves to surf. Fish to catch. Bars and restaurants to visit. It's cool.

It certainly takes some organizing to get to inhaca island, but I think you'll find it is a great place to spend a day or a few if you've arranged accommodation. The government ferries are available, but frankly hire a private bait. Faster and more...More
