    Na Ilha de Moçambique, vivem, mais de dez mil pessoas, no antigo «musseque» ou nas casas e estabelecimentos que outrora pertenceram a comerciantes portugueses e indianos. Sem «machambas» para cultivar, resta-lhes um imenso mar para pescar e os bancos de corais para, na preia-mar, recolher moluscos, crustáceos e as misteriosas «missangas do mar», com as quais confeccionam colares para vender aos turistas

    Dont miss out on the beautiful coral banks of the island or the famous shipwrecks. Sailing on local vessels is also a marvellous way of spending a day out.

    This is a small place run by a lady, called the "chinese " by the locals, who has some traditional dishes in the menu. Go in the morning to place the order for your meal otherwise you'll not find anything available!
    Try the Matapa de folha de mandioca com castanha de caju, and the caril de camarão (shrimp curry) with arroz de coco. They will also serve a wonderful sauce made with lemons preserved in salt and piri piri.

    It's considered the best restaurant of the island and effectively you can have great grilled fish and also some traditional dishes like Tocossado de peixe. There is a larger variety in the menu but you have to book in advance. Great old style atmosphere with music, few tables, they also have a nice patio overlooking the beach.

Ilha de Mocambique Transportation

    There is a narrow (fortunately) bridge that connects the island to the mainland. This means that big vehicles like buses or trucks cannot go through. There is an intense activity back and forth, so It's not difficult to stop a car ore more probably a pick-up to be transported on either side.

    Favorite thing: The people play an important role in the comfort that the island offers, but its architecural and natural beauty second it very closely, or otherwise it would not be consiodered by UNESCO as global patrimony.

    Fondest memory: Dont miss a day out sailing on a typical boat on themarvellous secluded beaches and a great meal at the reliquias restaurant. Visit Jorge Forjaz´s Hotel on the Island.
