Although small, this island has great tourism value due to its beautiful coral reefs and gorgeous beaches. The entire island is protected as a natural reserve, along with the nearby Portuguese Island.

The island marine ecosystem cover areas of open water - home to a variety of species of, fish, dolphins and whales - coral reefs, bays and coves, and the ""intertidal zones."" Coral reefs, known by the people as Tsonga tikontweni, divided into 45 different genres, and include black corals, used in traditional medicine of the island. The two main reefs are the Red Barrier Reef and Coral Ponta Torres. The Cove South, known as the ""Sac Inhaca"" also stands out, as shrimps, crabs, molluscs, and splendid sea-stars of vivid tropical colors inhabit their muddy bottoms.

In shallower water several species can be found: birds, including flamingo. The ""intertidal zone"" are rich in seagrass and algae that attract turtles and dugongs, species at serious risk of extinction.
 Despite the relatively short distance to Maputo - about 30 km, which means 2h boat or a flight from 15m - Inhaca Island stills mantaisn it's original features.
