Terraco das Quitandas

Terraco das Quitandas - front door MV imageThis quaint guesthouse is situated on the island of Ilha de Mozambique. The rich architecture and interior decorations are an eclectic mix of Asian and European influences. The Guesthouse overlooks the beach, with a small garden in front. There are various tranquil settings throughout where you can relax – such as the reading room, balconies and an inner private courtyard. The terrace is an excellent vantage point from which to observe the island or mesmerizing sunsets. Terraco das Quitandas features six spacious suites that offer modern comforts such as en suite facilities and air conditioning.

Accommodation rates include a continental style Breakfast featuring a variety of fresh fruits, breads, cakes and cereals. The friendly staff at Terraco das Quitandas will gladly assist with arranging a guided tour of the historical island. Highlights include a visit to the Meseu de Arte Sacra, Hindu Temple and Fortress of San Sebastiao with an accredited guide. An additional treat is booking a relaxing massage either in the privacy of your suite or on the top terrace to enjoy the secular makua wisdom of harmonizing the body with the mind.

What is Special?Terraco das Quitandas - room interior 2 MV Image

The beautiful guesthouse building is over 300 years old, giving its visitors a unqiue glimpse back into the past hey days of the island.  The interior design and styling, thick walls and ornately carved wooden doors transport you back into history when Ilha was a popular port of the various seafaring nations of old. The island is a perfect destination for those that want to immerse themselves in the history of Mozambique, keen photographers and lovers of architecture.

The island does not really have a great swimming beach and therefore we recommend a maximum of two to three nights on the island followed by an extension to either Coral Lodge or Nuarro Beach Lodge.

Access

The nearest airport is Nampula Airport.  Transfers can be arranged by road and duration is approximately 2 hours.
