Inhaca Island is about 40KM of shore from Maputo out into the Indian Ocean, it has coral reefs and warm clear blue waters and it was where had chosen to spend the weekend.
We got to the pier at 6:30 to try and catch the government ferry which is only 150Mets compared to the tourist one which is 1000Mets, big difference. It was Flea, Kelly, Aubrey, Seja, Z and I who were going, and we boarded the small ferry and found a seat on a wooden bench. The trip took about three hours to do, Maputo shrank behind us and the small island came into view. The tide was out when we got there so the ferry couldn’t get all the way in. Small boats came to pick us up and we lowered ourselves down the side of the boat, health and safety would have had a field day.
The island was stunning, white sandy beaches as far as you could see, small colourful fishing boats floated lazily in the harbour. We walked to our guest house and dropped our stuff off before quickly making a bee line for the beach. We found a nice spot and dropped out stuff and ran for the water.
It was great fun; the water was perfect temperature but a bit shallow where we were. But we spent the next five hours building a sand village or playing in the water with the local kids, doing a bit of snorkelling or just lounging on the beach.
We all got a bit pink, so we had to retire to some shade and likely enough there was a bar on the beach where we could sit and have a few drinks by the ocean. Sitting in a chair on a white sandy beach with the warm breeze blowing past from the crystal ocean and a cold drink in your hand is a great day to watch the sun set.
The rest of our time on the island past similarly, sitting on a beach, drinking or eating and just enjoying the past time. I could get used to being able to pop out to an island for my weekends. The whole thing could almost be managed on our allowance which is pretty good.
At around 14:00 on Sunday we went to the dock to get a small boat back out to the waiting ferry and we returned to Maputo and were back in time for dinner. The whole trip was fantastic, easy, cheep and convenient. I will go back for sure.
