Mozambique Island

Nancy & Joseph Gill
Mozambique's capital under Portuguese rule, this island steeped in history is now a UNESCO world heritage site. Only 3 km in length, this fascinating town is packed to the brim with a heady mix of Portuguese and Swahili architecture. Ride a bicycle along the coast, or take a kayaking trip to explore the island. Make sure to see the fort that sits on one of the tips, providing great photo-ops.
