|Bay View Lodge – is a superior self-catering lodge in Barra (Praia da Barra), near Inhambane in Mozambique. We are onthe north-eastern tip of the beautiful Barra peninsula, with an estuary behind and a l-o-n-g sandy beach in front of the lodge.It is a place to leave your stress behind, explore the underwater wonderland on your doorstep and enjoy the night sky, far away from bright city lights.
Accommodation ranges from one-bedroom units – two persons – to our Group House which can accommodate 16 guests, allwithin 90m of the beach and fully equipped. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and units are serviced daily, except on Sundaysand public holidays.
It’s a paradise for fishermen with launching of boats possible a few hundred metres from your house. Game species targeted in the area are kingfish, queenfish, barracuda, mackerel and yellowfin tuna. For the adrenalin seekers, there are black marlin, sailfish or wahoo. Main season for sailfish is July to December and for marlin, October to March.
There are numerous other water activities for non-fishing guests, organised by local operators:
- scuba diving and snorkelling
- sea safaris
- trips to Pansy Island
- trips in the local dhows
- horse riding on the beach
We are approximately 485km north of Maputo, and 25km from Inhambane town, in Inhambane Province, Mozambique. All roads leading to the lodge are tarred, except for the last 10km, which is dirt road. It has been hard-packed with coral sand, making it easy to reach us with a normal passenger vehicle.
