  • Perfect
  • Serene at its best
  • Beautiful and peaceful beach! El Tropical restaurant great service and food tasty and well cooked.
  • Great. Take a small boat from the Portuguese island to Inhaca. Pay a small amount for a local guide that will walk with you through the village. Eat at one of the local restaurants and make friends with the locals. They are very friendly people.
  • Great day out. Take a ferry from Maputo early morning get there by 6.30am to get a ticket lunch in a very rural setting and head back by ferry around 2pm
