Barra Lodge is situated 485km north of Maputo in one of the most picturesque areas in Mozambique, with spectacular views of pristine beaches and the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean.
Access by road is a pleasant drive by tarred road suitable for the passage of a normal vehicle. However, the last 7km’s leading to the lodge is a sand road where a 4x4 is necessary. Those with normal vehicles will be collected from a safe parking area.
You may also elect to fly to Inhambane where customs and immigration services are available.
Barra has secluded, unspoiled beaches, bordered by the Inhambane estuary on one side and the sea on the other. The lodge is nestled among groves of coconut trees; all rooms have exquisite beach and sea views.
The warm Indian Ocean offers safe bathing all year round. The wide open, clean beaches offer endless hours of strolling pleasure.
Boat launching is smooth and easy. Ski boat fishing is excellent and Barra is a venue of frequent game fishing competitions. The largely unexplored reefs within close proximity to the lodge offers endless pleasure for scuba diving and snorkelling.Accommodation

The lodge was great. We just found that the casitas need a little maintenance, but other than that everything was good. We will be back, thanks.
The Lodge within itself is great. The service was good and the location is fantastic. I will definitely bring the kids next time.
We enjoyed our stay and everything was perfect. Only one problem. No shade for the cars. Please think about it and try and make a plan.
The place was everything I expected. The setting is beautiful the facilities good and the staff very friendly and helpful. I will definitely come again and also tell my friends.
