Visit Inhaca Island
Why not go take a ferry to Catembe ... which is the land you can see from across the bay of Maputo harbour. The boat ride takes about 25 minutes ... and once you are there (notice 2 small shipwrecks) and have jumped off board, you can either take a walk around Catembe which features quite a few military guns placed in certain spots (some are still loaded) or walk over to the restaurant and enjoy a tasty meal while also enjoying a fantastic panoramic skyline view of Maputo.
You can also hop on a boat to the Xefina island (off the coastline of Costa do Sol in Maputo). Even though you can cross the shallow waters to this island ONLY during low tide... it is still too risky as you can never be too sure how fast the tide will come in etc, etc. So its best to be safe and take a boat to Xefina. Long ago, the Portugese used the island as a prison and this served to be a good idea as there was no guards needed as the shark infested waters did the deed.

Then if you are interested in visiting or staying at the popular Inhaca island, then it is as simple as booking a boat trip. Click here for Information and Accommodation on Inhaca Island.

Maputo and Mozambicans are full of life and If you feel like experiencing some Maputo nightlife ... then groove down to the Fere de Populare, where vibrant latino beats play through-out the night. There are quite a few bars and disco's in this area to go test & taste the local beers and mixes!
