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.

Start the day with an exhilarating transfer aboard one of the new 80-seater MSC FlamingoZodiac ship-to-shore vessels. When you arrive on the pristine Portuguese Island beach, you will find the Portuguese Origins Market selling local wares, shaded beach areas, the Fun Zone which hosts various sporting tournaments, the renewed Beach Bar, Kids Zone, extended and shaded deck with live music and dining area. The complimentary buffet is open from 12pm to 2pm and passengers can enjoy a traditional South African braai with all the trimmings. An exclusive Beach Lounge is available for guests looking for something a little quieter, offering sun beds, umbrellas and a dedicated bar service. For the more adventurous, visit the new excursion centre to book one of our excursions, which includes a visit to Inhaca Island, snorkelling at Santa Maria, sea kayaking, dhow cruises, dolphin watching or fun water sports such as the Snipe Tube and Family Fun Rides.

Pomene Bay, 605km north of Maputo and 170km south of Vilanculos, is arguably one of the most picturesque destinations in Mozambique. The azures colours of the Indian Ocean seas lap onto the powdery white sand of this peninsula’s palm-lined beaches on one side, while the other side is framed by the clear waters of a spectacular mangrove estuary.
