"Catembe, 10 minutes from Maputo" Catembe by georeiser

Catembe Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 80 photos

Catembe is located on the other side of the bay from Maputo city. Catembe is a rural area, and the life is not so hectic as it is in the city centre. The main attraction in Catembe is the beach, which is quite long and wide. But the water is not so clean. The beach is a gathering place for young people. Catembe has several small cafes. The streets are without asphalt paving.

Catembe has a harbour with ferries to the other side of the Maputo bay. You will also see old wreck in the bay.

As you can see from the Google Earth map, it's not far from Maputo to Catembe. 10 minutes with a ferry
