2. Nhamabue Peninsula

Nhamabue Peninsula juts into the Indian Ocean across from Liasse and in between cradles a warm turquoise lagoon, definitely a place worth watching the sunset from in Mozambique. Add to this that some extreme luxury resorts now perch on the peninsula, like Sussurro’s, you should make a note to catch a sunset when you are ever in the area.

3. Benguerra Island (or the Bazaruto Archipelago)

Do we need to say more than its an island located in the dreamy Bazaruto Archipelago? It’s the second largest in the Bazaruto Archipelago, which is known for its stunning coastlines, diving, animal interactions (think dugongs, whale sharks and bustling coral reefs). Benguerra itself offers grasslands and forests to explore if you are all ‘beached out’.

4. Guinjata Bay, Inhambane

A place of remote beauty and still a hub of activities like fishing, snorkeling and diving, perfect for families. Guinjata Bay is not just one of the top beaches in Mozambique, it’s a place of wild beauty that forges a connection with the individuals who encounter its waves and dunes, shaded under golden palm trees.

6. Tofo Beach

Tofo Beach is well known for its beauty and right off the coast, also for its underwater wildlife. Interactions with humpback whales, dolphins and manta rays have put Tofo Beach on the map with visitors who are keen to dive off the coast amidst coral reefs to experience these animals in their natural habitat.

7. Maputo

Most of the world’s population lives in cities, and many city dwellers form a deep connection and sense of identity from their city roots. No wonder Maputo city, the capital city of Mozambique and a sunset from that city, made it to our list. This seaside city is rich in history and has a serious ‘vibe’ worth experiencing for those that can appreciate the beauty of the urban landscape, especially at twilight.
