A stopover for the islands, Vilanculos is an easy and vibrant coastal town to navigate. With plenty of markets from fresh fruit and vegetables to arts and crafts it’s the perfect place to pick up some souvenirs before leaving Mozambique.
There is plenty to do here and is arguably the best spot for those who enjoy water-sports and a bit more of a nightlife. Visit the islands on day trips returning to the mainland in the afternoon. Famous for its huge prawns and local beers, stop off for lunch at a beach bar for a delectable Mozambique soiree.
It is also an affordable option for those that find the islands price tags a little hefty – beautiful beaches and plenty to do equals a great destination. Vilanculos suits everyone – big or small groups, families with children from young to teens, couples, even corporate getaways.
