Inhassoro Town
Inhassoro is an exceptional tourism destination, as well as being thegateway for Bazaruto Island of the Barazuto Archipelago. Making it closer to the largest island than Vilankulo. Approximately 96 kilometers north of Vilankulo, Inhassoro is 15km east of the main road (EN1). The last of the 'main' coastal towns before the EN1 turns inland, is an extremely popular destination for South African anglers. Its sunbaked, white-sand shoreline is uncluttered and inviting. Boat transfers to Bazaruto and Santa Caroline islands, both which can be viewed from off-shore, can be arranged at any of the hotels, often on-the-spot, but it is always better to give advance notice.
