Awesome place! - Inhaca is a must see place! We had great fun, mostly snorkelling at the Santa Maria beach and Portuguese Island. The water is very clear and in Santa Maria we could even see fish just by standing in the water. It’s beautiful! Carry enough meticals while travelling as you will not find a place to convert your currency. Also, there is an island tax as soon as you enter Inhaca and also if you do any snorkelling at Santa Maria.

Piece of paradise - Beautiful and wild. So much of nature still untouched! Perfect just to sit back and enjoy an ice cold beer.

Paradise Regained! - Taking the short boat ride across the bay of Maputo, you note with increasing anticipation the waters turning an opaque, turquoise blue as you near the shores of Inhaca Island. It truly is the undiscovered gem of the Southern shores of Mocambique. With an abundance of world class destinations to choose from ranging from the incredible Portuguese Island, a Nature Reserve with stunning deserted beaches in every direction, the shores of the Lighthouse where you can spend hours discovering rock pools as the tide abates (and also take a journey to the very top of the lighthouse for some breathtaking panoramic views!), the truly awe inspiring Turtle Beach on the eastern shores and finally Ponta Torres, a world class destination with snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities for the whole family. Inhaca is one of the few true semi tropical Island destinations boasting such huge bio-diversity and you can take an invigorating walk along the western beaches to visit the Biology Station museum and marvel at their aquatic collections. Mangrove swamps await to be explored by canoe, big game fishing beckons and scuba diving enthusiasts will enter a world of unspoiled, pristine reefs waiting to be explored. The months of July to November are punctuated by the arrival of the incredible Humpback Whales - enjoy quality time in their magnificent presence - up to 38 whales have been witnessed in the same day at Inhaca Island as they cavort, spy hop, breach and tail sail, its inspirational!! Spectacular sunsets are enjoyed watching the sun set over Maputo, twinkling in the distance over a glass of your favorite beverage.....could there be a better way to end an exhilarating day? Inhaca Island truly is Paradise Regained!

Nothing to offer - Would not go to Inhaca again, as has nothing to offer us as if you dont have transport it is very costly and as accommodation is not on the beach have to walk far distances to get to the beach which does not count as a beach for swimming ect., even to get to Inhaca is a hassle and if the ferry does not run due to weather conditions you loose out on money paid for accommodation that was booked?
