Travel to Ilha de Mocambique, or commonly known as the Island of Mozambique. This tiny island is situated off the coast of Nacala Province. Initially, the capital of Mozambique for nearly 400 years before the Portuguese moved it to Lourenco Marques (now Maputo), this island is now a popular holiday destination, and a Unesco World Heritage site.
Walk across the bridge connecting the island to the mainland and mingle with the approximately 16 000 people living mostly in thriving Macuti Town. Stone Town, on the northern half of the island, is worth a visit due to its significant architectural and cultural landmarks.
