A 40km tongue of white sand beach, rolling dunes and a windswept coastline that’s blissfully unblemished, the Machangulo Peninsula is a far-flung escape where you can sink into the slow pace of life. This untamed outpost overlooks the gorgeous Inhaca Island, its most northerly part, where the Portuguese traded for ivory in the 16th century. Other vistas depict nature unfolding – great white pelicans soaring in the sky and if you’re lucky, humpback whales breaching the surface offshore.
Much of the peninsula is part of the Machangulo Reserve, an area full of freshwater lagoons, mangroves and sub-tropical forests that you could explore for days on end. Take a kayak out and paddle around its snaking emerald channels completely undisturbed save for pods of friendly dolphins that frequent the many lagoons. Or explore the Indian Ocean’s underwater kingdom in barely visited dive sites bursting with giant clams and kaleidoscopic coral reef. Otherwise, barefoot beach picnics and relaxed seafood lunches are the order of the day – any excuse not to budge from the sun-baked sand.
