Marracuene is a town in Mozambique's Maputo Province, located 30 km north of Maputo by the Incomati River. The Parque de Campismo de Marracuene, a popular camping destination, is located nearby.
Marracuene, then known as Vila Luísa, served as a popular tourist destination in Mozambique's colonial era due to its 21-mile beach in the Indian Ocean; the town also served as a key link in the Lourenço Marques Railway System.
On February 2, 1895, Marracuene was the site of a decisive battle between Portuguese commander António Enes and Ronga emperor Gungunyane; the Portuguese defeated the Ronga forces by means of repeating rifles and a machine gun.
