Northern Mozambique in detail


The coastal islands have sprouted some luxurious and expensive resorts in recent times, although most of them are tastefully done and a few are actively engaged with the local communities. Nampula specialises in business hotels, while Mozambique Island sports some fine colonial digs. There are two decent backpacker hostels (both called Ruby) in the region, otherwise budget travellers will find themselves contemplating scruffy pensões in the smaller towns.
