About the neighborhood
Inhaca Island is a small-inhabited island, lying just 37 km off the Mozambican capital of Maputo and positioned at the entrance to Delagoa Bay. It's location to Casa Dunas is excellent - the island itself is seperated from the main penninsula by 'Hells Gate' - a channel that feeds the greater Maputo Bay.

The island also features large areas of unspoiled evergreen forest and bush land. Large areas of its land and shores have been protected as natural reserve since 1976, providing a unique and pristine environment, which can be enjoyed by taking one of the excellent two- to three-day hiking trails that are available for the avid walker.

All told, Inhaca has some 100 km of coastline, much of it having some of the best coral reefs in the Mozambique Channel. Snorkeling conditions...

How to get there
Most international flights to/from Mozambique use Maputo's airport (IATA: MPM). LAM [1] operate a high number of domestic flights within Mozambique. TAP flies non-stop from Lisbon. SAA [2] operates two flights a day from Johannesburg to Maputo and SA Airlink has five flights a week from both Durban and Cape Town.

Most visitors to Casa Dunas make use of charter services out of Maputo Airport and fly directly to the Machangulo Airstrip where they are collected in 4x4 vehicles and taken to the beach house.
