lunches can be arranged from Inhaca Lodge. Portuguese Island has
beautiful beaches and the lagoon area is great for all manner of
watersports. The snorkelling is also fairly good.
Santa Maria Wall (also known as Ponte Torres) is quite far from
Inhaca Lodge, on the other side of the island. The boat trip takes
approximately 45 minutes each way. This is actually a reef, which
is really great for "drift" dives or snorkelling. The
"wall" is a rocky ledge that falls steeply down to 20
meters. Best dived leading up to high tide; the jagged rocks have
many caves and ledges that harbor all kinds of marine life.
