Beira is Mozambique's second largest city.
Beira is the second largest city and harbour in Mozambique. You'll need to pass through it when heading north, so stop over for the day and enjoy its relaxed atmosphere. Make the most of its shops; visit the city square with its surrounding colonial houses, and have a drink on a café terrace. Don't forget to visit the cathedral and Praia de Makuti if you travel to Beira (and if you want a swim).
