The temperature drops to around 15 degrees from May to late September. The downside to this is that many of the outdoor activities either aren’t available or aren’t as enjoyable. Snorkeling and sailing for example can be a lot less pleasant when the sun isn’t basking you with heat. Make sure to book your flights to Inhambane well in advance.

Public transport is very limited although you can find buses that cover the coast, none of them pay a visit to the airport. Due to that you’re pretty limited with your only practical means being to jump in a taxi. The airport is pretty small and it lacks facilities however the staff would be more than happy to help you find a taxi at a fair price. Make sure that you have agreed on the price before getting in though.
