A tropical paradise with swaying palm trees and great beaches
Lying along Mozambique’s tropical east coast, the idyllic region of Inhambane (pronounced In-yam-baan) is a dream destination on MSC Cruises’ South African cruise itinerary.
Our MSC ships call at the port of Inhambane in Inhambane Bay 470 km northeast of Maputo and here, a day spent away from your luxury liner is one filled with the typical sights of a tropical paradise, from swaying palm trees and great beaches – blended with a lively mix of culture and history stretching back to the 11th century.
Our wide variety of excursion packages for this destination ensures that all passenger tastes are catered for and you benefit from the best deals on your chosen activities.
Those for whom ‘vacation’ means ‘relaxation’ will be happy sitting in the harbour front, watching the local sailing boats, or ‘dhows’, glide gracefully into port, with drink in hand. Sporty passengers looking for an idyllic underwater experience are well advised to use this destination as a chance to experience some world-class water sports; the Barra peninsula and Tofo beach (about one hour away) offers great diving and snorkelling opportunities. Nature lovers may wish to seek out a whale-watching trip for a truly unforgettable holiday adventure. Culture buffs can explore Inhambane itself; highlights include the local museum, the old mosque and shopping for spices and nuts in the local ‘mercado’, or market.
