Cruise Durban to Portuguese Island
South Africa’s Favourite Playground
A visit to Mozambique’s Portuguese Island offers the ideal island escape that will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and revitalised.
The most popular cruise destination in southern Africa, Portuguese Island, is an uninhabited nature reserve with pristine beaches, dense vegetation, pleasant lagoons and small patches of mangrove. To make this island retreat more comfortable for visitors, MSC Cruises has invested in making upgrades to the island’s facilities in time for the 2015-16 season. Improvements will be made to the entertainment area, the dining area will be expanded, and the excursion centre, and VIP area will receive a makeover.
A substantial amount of new infrastructure will also be built, including a new furnished entertainment area, dining deck, a fully equipped excursion centre, additional storage and the beach kitchen will be enlarged. Adding to the comfort and luxury of the space, a cooler spray system will be installed, along with extra shade sails and indigenous palm trees for added shade and maximum visual appeal.
As always, all the new infrastructure development commissioned by MSC will be strictly focused on preserving the ecological environment on Portuguese Island. MSC continues to work in conjunction with experts in the field of environmental sustainability and green building practices to ensure that the developments made have a minimal impact on the island’s ecosystem, ensuring that the environmental integrity of this nature reserve is maintained.

The complimentary buffet is open from 12pm to 2pm and passengers can enjoy a traditional South African braai with all the trimmings.
