Welcome to Xai Xai

Xai Xai

Just 124 miles (200km) north of Maputo, the small town of Xai Xai is a popular excursion for those seeking a relaxing day on the beach. Xai Xai has a scattering of shops, bars, restaurants and accommodation, but the real draw is the superb scuba diving and snorkelling on offer, including at Wenela Tidal Pool, just one mile (2km) south. The sandy white beaches with their calm waters are a fantastic place to swim, and there are fresh water lakes nearby for kayaking, paddle skiing and windsurfing.

Information & Facts

Portuguese is the official language, and there are 13 main national languages spoken. English is taught in secondary schools, but is only spoken in the southern tourist regions.

The official currency is the New Metical (MZN), which is divided into 100 centavos. In the southern parts of the country, South African Rand, US Dollars and Pounds Sterling are also accepted to pay for accommodation. Credit cards are accepted in some upmarket hotels in Maputo, but facilities throughout the rest of the country are limited; it is advisable to carry cash or travellers cheques. ATMs are limited and tend to be unreliable, but local banks have branches in most cities.
