Barco’s De Macaneta, "Home of the Happy Fisherman”, lies only 35 kilometres to the north of Maputo near the town of Marracuene and a bridge crossing across the Nkomati River along the coast.  Macanetta Island is the closest beach resort to Maputo in Southern Mozambique.  This unique peninsula is surrounded by the Nkomati River and the Indian Ocean with abundant plant- and bird life, and excellent fishing in the area.  Here you find tropical pristine unspoilt beaches for 50 kilometres.

Detailed driving directions on how to get to Macanetta Island and Mozambique maps can be found on our Getting Here page.

The beach is a short 100 metre walk away...that’s a five minute stroll to the beach for swimming, tanning and beach parties and to watch the local fisherman pull in their nets!  Boats, Jet ski’s, Quad bikes and rubber-ducks are welcome at Macaneta Lodge, although no vehicles are allowed onto the beach.  At a nominal extra fee boats and Jet ski’s can be launched from our beach with our tractor.  We offer boat charters for deep sea fishing and/or pleasure cruises, more information can be found on our Activities page.

Fresh fish and prawns can be bought from the local fishermen daily.  Cold beer, cold drinks, ice and fresh bread (pao) is available on the island. Petrol and charcoal can be bought at Macaneta.  Although there is fresh water available, it is advisable to bring enough of your own drinking water.  There is a brand new shopping Mall in Maputo - which is also well worth a day trip.  Read more on our Info page with great tips for first time visitors to Mozambique.
