    Cruises to Portuguese Islands


Cruise from Durban on the Sinfonia, Cruise up to the Portuguese Islands and Pomene.



The Portuguese Island is a small, uninhabited island nestled between the coast of African and the Indian Ocean, just off Maputo Bay in Mozambique. The island itself is six kilometers long and takes about an hour to walk across. Along the way, several small kiosks sell refreshing drinks and local food. One of the local favorites is Tipo Tinto, which is a rum distilled from local sugar cane.  The oceans also offer a chance to take a refreshing dip to cool down under sun soaked skies.


There is plenty of activity on this island, from beach volleyball to beach tennis. Lounge about on a sunbed, read a book under an umbrella or head off to a quite more secluded bay.
