A survivor of thirty years of war, Mozambique has laid down its arms and regained its natural and warm smile. Facing Madagascar, its 2,500 kilometres of lace coastline reveal incredible landscapes between land and sea. Lovers of beaches and prints, get your tickets, fly to Portuguese-speaking Africa. Mozambique, it is the softness of the sand between the toes, the beaches as far as the eye can see, the magic of the corals and its majesty the whale shark, for lovers of the Portuguese singing, the grilled fish on the plate and the shimmering colours of the overcrowded markets, for the folklore of the chapa running on the hilly tracks, Red glowing and endless, the sun that taps, taps, taps, then sets, a little too early, in the turquoise sheets of the Indian Ocean, for lovers of paradise islands, sails that hoist against the wind and give the sensation, so light, of gliding over the transparent water. We like to surprise the turtles spinning at full speed, observe the dolphins playing and glimpse the whales rolling their humps, live to the rhythm of the tides that draw the horizon and sculpt the sandbanks where women with fresh shrimp on their heads wander sensually... Then find again the incandescence of Maputo, a capital in mutation, a capital that rarely sleeps and lets itself be lulled by the music of brass and percussion.
