Inhambane is one of the oldest towns in Mozambique and situated 25 kilometres from the villa. It has some great colonial architecture and is considered by many to be one of the prettiest towns in Mozambique.
If you visit the town, don’t miss the following culture sights: the almost 200 year old Cathedral of Our Lady of Conception, the Governor’s Palace, the Municipal buildings, and the museum. As the town is set on the bay of Inhambane, you should go to the harbour, where you can enjoy a drink whilst watching the dhows cruise across the bay. You can 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.This long stretch of coast line is by far the most developed in Mozambique as far as tourism is concerned.
