The coast around the city of Inhambane, is home to many secluded beaches. Gorongosa wildlfe park is on the way up North and visitors to Vilanculos will be tempted to linger a while at the luxury resorts of the Bazaruto Archipelago. Mozambique is one of the best locations for SCUBA diving and snorkelling as its waters are alive with many species of marine life including dolphins, manta ray, shoals of tropical fish and the occasional shark.
There are many other activities available in Mozambique such as deep-sea fishing, fly fishing, sunsets cruising, sailing, and exploring the Islands. Caution is advised if travelling inland as the presence of landmines laid during the war is a continuing hazard despite de-mining efforts.
