It is easily accessed with scheduled air transfers on a Wednesday,Friday and Sunday and charter flight requests for the alternate days , just 10 minutes flying time from Maputo.

Inhaca Island has a lot to offer, from boat trips to the nearby Portuguese Island, which is a totally deserted island with magnificent white sandy beaches, and excursions to the Marine Biology Museum or the Inhaca Lighthouse.

There is also a small village to provide some local colour or souvenir hunting. Inhaca Island is a true African Island, and an ideal weekend getaway with great appeal.

Excursions can be arranged to Portuguese Island, the Biology Station, Light House Beach, the Mangrove swamps, as well as the Santa Maria Wall. Also available are Sunset cruises, Whale Watching excursions, etc.
Portuguese Island is a deserted island approx. 3 km from Inhaca Island. The boat crossing only takes about 10 -15 minutes and picnic lunches can be arranged from Inhaca Lodge. Portuguese Island has beautiful beaches and the lagoon area is great for all manner of water sport's. The snorkeling is also fairly good.

Santa Maria Wall (also known as Ponte Torres) is quite far from Inhaca Lodge, on the other side of the island. The boat trip takes approximately 45 minutes each way. This is actually a reef, which is really great for "drift" dives or snorkeling. The "wall" is a rocky ledge that falls steeply down to 20 meters. Best dived leading up to high tide; the jagged rocks have many caves and ledges that harbour all kinds of marine life.
