Maxixe, which is pronounced 'ma-sheish', is named after an African chief and lies across the bay from Inhambane. Situated on the main road between Maputo and Vilanculos, Maxixe is a bustling harbour.

Most of the traffic crosses the bay to Inhambane, which is an hour and a half away by road but 15 minutes by motor boat. Backpackers can sail the bay in a dhow, buy your fish still wriggling from the fish market and your veggies still growing from the roadside vendors.

There’s a supermarket here too if you’d rather eat peanut butter and sardines...
