The capital Maputo evokes a strong Portuguese atmosphere with its buildings and streets. The Cathedral, on Independence Square, and the City Council Chambers are two of the biggest landmarks in the city. The gothic Museum of Natural History and the Fortress, a colonial history museum, are a must-visit. The Nissa Game Reserve is a remote park with a rich wildlife.

The coastal areas offer sun, sand and scenic vistas. Wimbi Beach, located at a short distance from Pemba, is known for its clear blue waters, white sand and peaceful atmosphere. Bazaruto Island and Benquerra Island are also popular for their beaches and rich birdlife. Surfing and exploring the coral reefs are the popular activities on the islands.

Beira is Mozambique’s second major port located at the mouth of the Pungwe River. The square of Largo do Munincipio is surrounded by old colonial buildings. Casa Portugal and Casa Infante de Sagresa are popular landmarks in the city.
