“You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” – Christopher Columbus
Destination: Pomene Bay, Mozambique
Smiling and hospitable people, magical beaches, colonial cities and hut villages, baobab and mangrove forests, unspoiled islands, and some of the most stunning beaches on the African continent.
Your MSC South Africa cruise welcomes you to Mozambique, a natural portent just waiting to be discovered. Between the capital Maputo, in the South, and Pemba, in the North of the State, there are 2000 kilometers of coastline, characterized by stretches of white sand that blend into the horizon, blue lagoons, and unexplored coral reefs.
During your holiday with MSC Cruises, you can disembark in Pomene, one of the most picturesque sites in Mozambique. The lagoon that protects this extraordinary bay, set between the blue Indian Ocean and the waters where the mangroves grow – these extraordinary plants appear to float on the surface of the water, like a forest in a fairy tale – is part of the Pomene Nature Reserve, a protected marine area that has managed to preserve its authentic and wild beauty thanks to its remote location.
A MSC Cruises excursion to this sun-kissed place offers you the opportunity to relax with long walks or horseback riding on the beach, to explore the surrounding nature with the help of a guide, immersing yourself in lush leafy vegetation, with an abundance of different species, or watch the sunset while lying on the fine sand of Pomene. Your MSC cruise ship will take you to an African paradise that is also famous for diving and snorkeling, perfect for lovers of the underwater world. Mozambique is a land full of natural beauty spots that never cease to surprise and amaze.
This cruise is another popular one amongst South African Holidaymakers.
