Mozambique is an affordable tropical hideaway. Here are many excellent lodges and campsites along the pristine coastline of the Indian ocean.

It is also a paradise for divers and fishermen. The seafood is out of this world.

Personally, I prefer to visit Mozambique during the winter months as the weather is cooler.

The small town of Barra is nestled at the mouth of Inhambane Bay. The setting is idyllic. Once you have walked along these beautiful beaches you will never want to leave!

Enjoy the pictures...
