Great place to relax and rejuvenate

Was a wonderful break away with lovely reefs for snorkelling. The Island is untouched and beautiful.

I travelled to Inhaca and very few people know this island as well as Piri Piri. Vergil will take you around in his Land Rover to discover the island. We went up to the lighthouse and the reefs. Safe and highly recommended!
