Head to Inhambane for your best diving and surfing holiday ever. Considered to be one of the top tourism regions in Mozambique, it is loved for its constant tropical climate and numerous inviting beaches.
Explore the Ponta do Barra (Barra Point) and its colourful coral reef tailor-made for diving and snorkelling. Nearby, Barra Beach is only 30 minutes from Inhambane town and a honeymoon paradise. Secluded beaches, rustic accommodation in coconut groves and endless horizons.
Inhambane is one of the oldest settlements in Mozambique, founded in 1560 by the Portuguese and now served by an airport and a harbour. A small town has evolved with banks, petrol stations, buses and a museum. Many cafes line the streets and cultural activities are many.
Chill with a Drink…
Enjoy a drink at the harbour while watching the dhows ply their way across the bay, or stroll through the central market, “Mercado Central”, where traders sell everything from spices, prawns and fish to fresh vegetables and cashew nuts. Take time to explore the fascinating mix of African, old-world Portuguese and Muslim cultures. As long ago as the 10th century, Inhambane was the southernmost port used by the Arabs for slave trading and Vasco da Gama claimed the bay for Portugal in 1498.
Inhambane is the largest cashew nut growing area in Mozambique and the versatile coconut and citrus fruits also come from here. Bring your fishing rod to hook huge game fish and organise other activities with your hotel of choice: dhow trips, sightseeing, parasailing, boat hire, horse riding, water skiing and four-wheel motor buggy hire.
Mozambique’s Inhambane region is a popular tourist destination and holiday travel packages are designed to suit every pocket.
