Ilha de Mozambique is an island 3,5km off the mainland, accessed by a single lane bridge, with pull over points to make way for oncoming traffic.
It is a world heritage site and was the country's original island capital, with a number of trading houses from Persia. It was a hub for mineral, spice and slave trade with the interior. The island offers the substantial remnants of Portuguese colonial architecture which has mostly been allowed to degrade completely.
On the other it’s a crowded, vibrant noisy place, with squalid shacks clustered together below the raised roadways and many boisterous youngsters out on the streets. Fishing must be an important part of the economy as many small fishing boats lie at anchor, drying out on the slopes of the sandy bays when the tide drops.
