Inhaca Island is an outstanding natural heritage site situated in the south of Mozambique. It is across Maputo Bay from the country’s capital making it an ideal weekend get away for people working in Maputo or tourists who would like to experience both urban and rural Mozambique. Access to the island is by boat or plane.
There is plenty to do and see on Inhaca. Take a dhow trip to Portuguese island, a lovely isolated spot where no one but a guide lives. Walk along the beach to the Marine Biology Station where research is carried out, and visit the museum which exhibits examples of all the animal, insect, plant and fish life indigenous to the island. Explore the interior of the island by land rover.
Fishing is excellent on the island especially from the lighthouse where there is also a wreck to see if you go snorkeling. Other amazing snorkeling and diving spots are at Santa Maria (at the bottom tip 0f the island) and the famous coral gardens. There is also a good surf spot on the island.
All of these excursions and many more can be arranged for you by the Inhaca Island Resort.
