Airlink connects you to Beira with direct flights from Johannesburg.
Although a little rough around the edges, Mozambique’s second largest city, Beira is slowly but surely re-establishing itself as a destination worth visiting and tourism in the area is growing. Situated halfway up the coast in Sofala province, at the mouth of the Púngoè River, Beira is an important port city and is known as a centre for trade with its neighbours: Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe.
It is loved for its Mediterranean style architecture which can best be appreciated from the city square (Praça), which is in the heart of the city and is a hub of activity with shops, restaurants and banks. Travelling north from the city centre along the beach road, you’ll find the red and white lighthouse, and the popular palm-lined Macuti Beach. On the banks of the Púngoè River in the oldest part of the port, there is an eerie ship graveyard that is also worth a visit.
For your return journey fly back to Johannesburg and travel beyond with Airlink to other key leisure and business destinations.
Discover Mozambique and its white, sandy beaches and turquoise waters.
Our visit there was a very interesting one for me historically. I had been studying the area of former Rhodesia, now Zambia and Zimbabwe and Beira played a significant role in shipping by rail from the Port of Beira to the inland armies during the wars.
