Macaneta Beach is the closest beach to Maputo, but sufficiently out of the way and hard to reach; as such, it is tranquil and pristine. We reach it by the EN1 highway or on the back road passing Costa do Sol. To get to the beach, we will use a 4x4 vehicle to cross the Incomati River by ferryboat (an adventure in itself). After that, a bumpy road will take us to the Macaneta Peninsula, about 30 km north of Maputo.

There is the option of booking this trip with a boat cruise up the Incomati River.
