Santa Maria Wall (also known as Ponte Torres) is quite far from Pestana Inhaca Lodge, on the other side of the island. The boat trip takes approximately 45 minutes each way.

There is also a small village to provide some local colour or souvenir hunting. Inhaca Island is a true African Island, and an ideal weekend getaway with great appeal.
