Nampula Province in northern Mozambique is not very likely to be visited by tourists.
Most who do, travel straight to the coast, which is very remote.
The area has much to offer, for example beach picnics like here from Coral Lodge…
… sailing amongst the local fisherman on a dhow cruise…
… or diving which is possible at both Nuarro and Coral.
Ilha de Moçambique is also worth exploring, especially because of its Portuguese fort.
Learn how to buy and prepare locally caught fish…
… or enjoy a relaxing wellness treatment as pictured here in Coral Lodge.
Coral Lodge is located on the mainland and very close to Ilha de Moçambique.
It consists of nine luxurious villas on the beach with stunning and spacious rooms.
You could also stay at Nuarro Mozambique, further to the north, for more adventure.
The rooms of the eco-lodge here are rustic but good quality.
If you take your time to discover the Nampula area, you might stumble upon treasures like…
… this golden altar in an old church, testifying to the region’s history.
Located only 3km from the mainland, Ilha de Moçambique once was very important…
… as a vital link for trade with India, which made it the capital of Portuguese East Africa.
Its buildings still testify to its importance, even if most of them are dilapidated nowadays.
Wander around the stone town to experience the inhabitants’ everyday life.
On the island, among other lodges, we offer Terraço das Quitandas with six rooms.
The terrace, after which the boutique hotel was named, offers a fantastic view.
