Boats to Mozambique Island
Holidaying in Nampula is like travelling off the beaten track – it can be time-consuming but once you are there, be grateful for the remoteness and beauty that surrounds you. Enjoy a popular day trip on a cruise out to Ilha de Mozambique, or Mozambique Island, only 3km offshore. Check out the fascinating ruins of ‘Stone Town’, grand old buildings that were built from the coral rock on the island. The island was once an important trading link between Asia and Europe for slaves, spices, pottery and gold.
The most impressive building on Ilha de Mozambique is the imposing Fort São Sebastião, which stands on the northern tip of the island. Many agree that this commanding, defensive structure, built with limestone shipped from Lisbon, is the most formidable fortress in Africa.
