In this article the authors describe the changes in a beach destination that enhance the overall tourism revenues, including the inclusion of the poor in the distribution of this income. We use the example of the Mozambican town of Inhambane and its main beach areas, where SNV in 2007 initiated an integrated approach to promote sustainable, pro-poor or inclusive tourism. Since that time many other development organizations have come on board (including the STEP program of UNWTO, ITC, Netherlands Embassy, UNESCO, DED, GTZ, and Technoserve) and supported us in this approach.
