    Tofo Beach is a perfect sandy beach located on the outskirts of the charming little seaside town of Tofo.

    Here, there are kilometers of soft, delightful sand and inviting bathing water.

    Unfortunately, the beach is haunted by a small army of irritating sellers. Cheap bracelets, in particular, are offered, but also coconuts, fruit, and other small items.

    In 2 hours, we were approached by AT LEAST 20 sellers. And they are VERY persistent. Even if you lie with your eyes closed, signaling that you want to be left alone, they try to make contact.

    The tactic that works best is to ignore them completely. Pretend they are air.

    If you start saying no thank you or that you are not interested, or that they should go away, they persist and are not easy to get rid of. Ignore them!

    Absolute gem of an island. Beautiful with so much history. Amazing scuba and snorkeling. Great sea life. The island is absolutely stunning. I can’t understand how people can give this special place a poor review. You must be very unhappy with yourself or have no idea how to enjoy nature and marine life. Rather go to a commercial overcrowded superficial destination if that’s what makes you happy.

    We have never seen so many live corals as at Mozambique's famous Two Mile Reef. This also means that the water is filled with fish of all colors and sizes. A leopard-spotted turtle also swam right by.

    On the way back, we also saw a sea cow (dugong) and two dolphins. Two Mile Reef is simply a must-see if you love snorkeling or diving.

    We visited MMF for one of their Wednesday talks. This one was about Humpback Whales and was totally fascinating.

    Most beaches in Mozambique have dunes and a rough sea. This beach has the coconut trees with sand and warm calm water what I expect from a tropical beach. There are restaurants along the beach and it is not crowded.

    There is not much there but if you read up on them before you go you can at least imagine how this market town used to connect the ocean to the old Zimbabwe. Not a must though so only go if either 1) you need a break from the beach, or 2) you are driving between Vilanculos and Inhambane

    they are just a few steps away of eachother but Tofo clearly is the winner if you ask me, and not because I think size matters

    This (pedestrian) ferry connects Maxixe on the Mozambican mainland with Inhambane peninsula. It sails on a regular basis (approximately every 20 to 30 minutes, as long as there are passengers). It costs 15 Meticais (one way). Tickets you can get inside an office (no cheating).

    There are two types of boats: one is a ship, pretty large in size dating from Portuguese times, the others are smaller flat bottoms. The latter are not very comfortable, as you sit on wooden planks. When it rains the boat is fully covered. The trip takes about 20 minutes.

    Blue Beach is a small stretch of beach north of Tofo and just around the far eastern rocky corner of Barra. Few tourists visit this beach as the high tide makes it difficult to reach. Coming from Barra there is a narrow trail over the rocks through the dunes not far from the old Lighthouse and Miramar restaurant. From Tofo it is an almost 1½ hour walk north along the beach side of the dunes.

    Mercado central in Inhambane is a hectic place, as many chapas to other parts of the peninsula depart and arrive here. It is also good for stocking up on local produce such as vegetables and fruit (significantly lower in price than at tourist places like Tofo and Barra). There is also a section where you can eat. Hygiene is a concern.

    The market is within walking distance of the ferry dock 1 km away. Ask locals about directions.

    Good to get an impression of local life.
