When Portuguese explorers reached Mozambique in 1498 AD, Arab-trading settlements had existed along the coast and outlying islands for several centuries. Later, traders and prospectors penetrated the interior regions. Although both Portuguese and Arabic influences have gradually diminished, there remains today a rich tapestry of these cultures within the region.

Sunshine, beaches, diving, water sports and fishing are the primary attractions in Mozambique. Visitors to this beautiful coastline will be spoilt with a range of choices in accommodation – from simple fishing camps to ultra-luxurious beach bungalows. The diving and diversity of fish are astounding and the warm water in the peninsula make it a safe place to laze in the sun.
