Vilanculos Holiday Accommodation

Vilanculos is a small town some 700km north of Maputo that pulses with life – Mozambique Accommodation on this part of the African coast offers anything from camping and backpackers to sublime luxury hotels and private, self-catering homes.

This Mozambique Tourist Region boasts a new international airport and is the gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago, a chain of exquisite islands in the Indian Ocean.

Vilanculos is named after a local tribal chief, Gamala Vilankulo Mukoke so today the district is called Vilanculos and the town Vilankulo – and many residents have Vilankulo as their last name. This popular tourist destination lies in the Vilanculos District of Inhambane Province.

Mozambique Holiday Packages to this region are wide-ranging – book a honeymoon plus diving holiday or a family exploration break. Nothing is impossible. There are plenty of local markets and fresh fish for visitors who prefer self-catering and small supermarkets provide most necessities.

Vilanculos is known for its fantastic white beaches, coconut palms, clear azure ocean, warm weather and island style adventure and pampering atmosphere. Mozambique’s Portuguese food is sumptuous and exciting so eating out is a pleasure. Water activities include fishing for marlin and other game fish, snorkelling, diving, kite surfing and swimming all day long. Motor-boating and traditional dhow sailing trips add to the adrenaline rush in Vilanculos.

Later indulge in a pampering spa – many establishments offer spa treatments while others offer all night parties.
