Catch a traditional "taxi-ride" from Maxixe to Inhambane in a dhow boat! Maxixe (pronounced 'ma-sheish') is the largest city in the Inhambane province situated on the bay opposite the historical and popular town of Inhambane. Believe it or not - boarding a ferry to Inhambane is the fastest way to get there than by road (and vice versa).
Maxixe is the province's economic capital and commercial centre with a population of about 98,000 people. Maxixe is a convenient stopover along the EN1 for travellers needing a break from a long journey. The city has all the basic facilities and supplies including accommodation, restaurants, fuel stations, banks, convenient stores and a local Market that sells fresh produce including local arts and crafts.
Maxixe is approximately 60km from Inhambane by road but if you want to experience a dhow ride across the bay to Inhambane then head off to the Maxixe's beaches where locals provide 'dhow transport service' for tourists. Experience what the local Mozambicans do everyday for a generous fee and drift along the waters where Vasco Da gama sailed back in the colonial days.
A ferry service to Inhambane is a quicker option for those looking to save time.
