Also known as Cidade de Nacala or Nacala-Porto, this small town plays an important role as the terminal for the Nacala Railway which links Mozambique with Malawi, a landlocked African country. Nacala has been a shipping harbour since 1951, trains travel from there to neighbouring countries while roads radiate out to Nampula southwest of Nacala and Pemba and Montepuez to the north.
