Its been nearly ten years since my last visit. I was surprised that this time around the water was really dirty, like gold panners were mining in the ocean. One local guy said the dirt could be coming from the Zambezi and Pungue rivers.

We arrived there and all the doors where open to us. We stepped in and a friend of us got immediately arrested by the local police. 6 policeman were guarding the lighthouse and it is forbidden to enter without a permit. We refused to bribe the police, so we had to contact our local friends to get us out of the mess. After more than 1 hour they gave up and we didn't pay anything. We got friends with the police, they even let us going up to the lighthouse and I took some selfies with them. Wonderful!

Didn’t have to spend much time there but snapped some photos and enjoyed the beach while we were there. Beira is limited in terms of sites to visit so this one is great to make note of.

Visited the lighthouse and ship wreck. Police and guards are permanently present. Initially suggesting a permit fee of 500 Meticais, it changed to two coldrinks when I mentioned that I don't carry cash, in a friendly way. Awesome views of the coast line and city.

Makuti Light House is close to the Hotel RANI'S.
Rani's hotel has best service and food quality.
Mr Nitin, owner of the hotel puts personal touch to ensure the comfort of the people staying in the Hotel.
While at Beira it a great place to stay at and eat.

Was there recently and there's hardly any sign of the shipwreck 😂the good news are,there's so many nice new/old things to see that you completely forget about the old shipwreck 😂...a walk along the sandy beach from the lighthouse to regular Louis beach (about an hour or 45mins slow walking)is a must if you look to relax!!the nhangau and sengo beaches about an hour driving from Beira are a must as well...or if you are really adventurous catch a small boat from Praia nova to cross to buzi or sofala ...great adventure but a bit dangerous if you cross on a small boat

Interesting rusting wreck in front of an abandoned lighthouse but the main draw is the beach. Beach is safe and clean with a wide expanse of sand, locals leave you alone and there is easy parking. Worth a visit if you want a beach with features.
