Mozambique has a coastline that stretches just over 2500 kilometers. Modestly developed and strikingly beautiful, this edge of the Indian Ocean is perfect for both adventure and deep relaxation. Fringed by pristine beaches, dramatic sand dunes, stunning coral plateaus and countless coconut trees, the Mozambican shoreline inevitably captivates all who walk barefoot along it. The journey most often begins in the southernmost town of Ponto d’Ouro.
