Get to Know Vilankulo

With its pretty seafront location and well-equipped town centre, Vilanculo is both a popular destination in its own right and useful budget base for visiting the offshore Bazaruto National Park.

With its wide choice of accommodation and seafood restaurants, a well-equipped town centre and an increasingly important international airport, Vilanculo can probably lay claim to being the busiest urban tourist centre on the coast between Maputo and Beira. It is a pleasant place simply to hang out for a few days, enjoying the tropical sunshine and idyllic Indian Ocean beachfront setting. Vilanculo is also very much a working town, as evidenced by its busy central market and the fishing beach running to its east, which becomes a hive of activity when the fishing boats return in the early morning or late afternoon.
