"Pretty as a picture" Inhaca by cleocat

Inhaca Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 5 photos

Inhaca is a beautiful island off the coast of Maputo. With the speed boat it is about 1 hour from Maputo.
The cost is $30 per person or $50 including a fish lunch.
On the island there is a beautiful hotel/resort with a nice restaurant and a big swimming pool ovelooking the ocean.

It is ideal for a day trip from Maputo.
Alternitavely you can spend a night on the island and return the next day.

A few km away from Inhaca is Portugese Island with an unspoiled beach and it is great for swimming and snorkeling.

A mystery path

It was Dec and very hot. This little path was pretty and there were lots of shade. It didn't go anywhere but captured the tranquility of the island.

On the way to Inhaca

The water at Maputo is not as clear as at the islands.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet; tranquil; warm sea water; close to Maputo for one day trips;
  • Cons:Only spend one day there - nothing I observed in that time.
  • In a nutshell:I felt a little bit as if we were back in Mauritius
