Inhambane: explore one of Mozambiques oldest towns

Population Inhambane: 65.000

Great colonial architecture

Twenty five kilometres from our resort is situated the town of Inhambane. It is one of the oldest towns in Mozambique dating back to the 10th century and the Arab traders. The Portuguese established a permanent settlement and trading post at Inhambane in 1534, making it one of the oldest settlements in Mozambique. It has some great colonial architecture and is considered by many to be one of the prettiest towns in Mozambique.

Inhambane is also a very calm, clean and low populated town which makes it worthwhile visiting.

International Airport

Inhambane is served by an airport and a port, and has petrol stations, banks, public phones, shops, markets, a bus terminus and a museum. Side-walk cafe’s are dotted along the narrow streets.

Dhow cruise

There are some noteworthy culture sights including the almost 200 year old Cathedral of Our Lady of Conception, the Governor’s Palace, the Municipal buildings, and the museum. The town itself is set on the bay of Inhambane, looking across to Maxixe. Enjoy a drink at the harbour whilst watching the dhows cruise across the bay. It is possible to hire a dhow to sail you around the bay or up to the Linga Linga Nature Reserve.

Thousands of Coconut palms

The landscape surrounding Inhambane is dominated by thousands of coconut palms - you’re really in the tropics now! This long stretch of coast line is by far the most developed in Mozambique as far as tourism is concerned.
