Lying on the south-west seaboard of Mozambique is the sleepy, coastal town of Vilanculos. Although it is seen as a gateway for visiting the nearby Bazaruto Archipelago, Vilanculos is a destination in its own right, with charming culture and beautiful beaches.
Explore the ancient Mayenyikeni ruins – a fascinating archaeological site believed to be part of the Great Zimbabwe tradition of architecture, distinguished by its mortarless stone walls.
Or support the locals by visiting Machilla Magic, a 'Fair Trade Tourism' Certified community project that works with over 60 artists, with a wide range of diverse arts and crafts on offer, 95% of which are made from recycled materials.
Venture to the coast to uncover why Vilanculos is known as the Mozambican capital of water sports. Go sailing, kitesurfing or scuba diving alongside a multitude of tropical marine species. Alternatively, you can explore the pristine beach on horseback, or even get a bird’s eye view of the gorgeous surrounding islands.
