Inhambane, the romantic old port in Mozambique, is named after the Karanga tribe who used to reside here when the Portuguese first reached its shores. Still used as a port to a certain extent, Inhambane tells its own story of past trades with various eastern and Arab influences. But today, it is mostly famous for its pristine coastline, spotted with white sails of dhows in the distance. Inhambane’s coastline promises to mesmerise you with idyllic white beaches, palm trees and turquoise waters with all the water activities you can imagine. The three main beaches include Praia do Tofo, Praia do Barra and Baia do Cocos, with the latter probably being the finest of beaches. Blessed with a unique sandstone reef, this is the ideal resort for swimming, fishing, diving and relaxing. Praia do Tofo is a very popular beach, with beautiful white sand and excellent diving opportunities, as well as the rare experience of snorkelling with whale sharks. It is also more accessible than Baia do Cocos. And at Praia do Barra, visitors have access to wide beaches and the renowned Manta Reef, where you are almost certain to spot a manta ray! The perfect tropical beach holiday experience.

WHEN TO GO?

Mozambique has a tropical climate so is warm all year round but it’s best to avoid rainy season and we’d recommend June and September as the best time to visit Mozambique. The windiest time is between February and August which affects visibility on dives, and peak fishing season is in September when King Fish fill the seas. Be prepared for hot weather during the summer months, which are also the rainiest – between November and April.

TOP ACTIVITIES

An ocean paradise, Inhambane’s coastline offers some of the best SCUBA diving in the world, and is one of the best places in the world to spot whale sharks. It also boasts world-class fishing; with big game fishing a popular activity. Quad biking, boating or kayaking can fill your days, otherwise take time out and relax in a hammock under a palm tree and feel the sun on your face. Inhambane itself is one of the prettiest Mozabiquan towns with strong Portuguese architectural influence.

 

WHERE NEXT?

Direct non-stop flights connect Johannesburg and Inhambane making it very easy to get to and from and the perfect beach destination to combine with the ultimate Big 5 safari experience at Kruger National Park. We recommend avoiding self-drive travel owing to the poor upkeeping of the roads, but Africa&You can arrange for all transfers to ensure you a hassle-free paradise beach holiday in Africa.
