Mocambique is usually known for its Bazaruto and Quirimbas islands destinations, but a hidden gem awaits smart travelers: Ilha de Mocambique.
The poetry of this place can only be discovered in person and my hint is not to plan it as a quick visit. Ilha sums up in itself, some of the best African beauty. Cozy people, beaches, and cultural heritage from the portuguese colonial era. Add a pinch of light Muslim culture, a fishing village and few smart expats that can usefully help you in sorting out any kind of problem, and you will have a full picture of what to expect.
If you plan a visit to Mocambique you can not miss a relaxing week in Ilha.
And the place to be is definetly Patio dos Quintalinhos. especially if you are traveling with your own car, but also for its charming neighbourood and the nice, refrigerant swimming pool.
