Friendly people, magnificent beaches, a balmy tropical climate, fabulous seafood, crumbling yet still elegant colonial buildings, these elements and more combine to make Southern Mozambique an utterly beguiling travel destination. In the capital, Maputo – one of Africa’s prettiest and most charming capitals – you can sample the lively local nightlife, peruse the bustling Municipal Market or feast on fresh king prawns along the seaside promenades. Just a couple of hours out of the city, the port town of Inhambane has some intriguing old Portuguese architecture, as well as a wide lagoon where visitors can take a dhow over to the neighbouring village of Maxixe. The seaside destinations of Tofo, Barra and Pandane each have their charms – visit Tofo for surfing and whale shark diving, Barra for its sublime beach and adventure activities, and remote Pandane for incredible snorkelling.
