Ilha de Mozambique, a UNESCO world heritage site, is a small island off the north coast of Mozambique. Reached by a long bridge this tiny island is fascinating and is a melting pot of ancient history and diverse cultures spanning several centuries. The old Portuguese colonial Stone Town has a fortress, beautiful old churches, trading houses and a hospital. A large village sprawls down to the shore where its narrow alleys offer a glimpse of daily life, filled with local color and commerce. We recommend you tour the island on foot!
