Bay View Lodge is in Barra (Praia da Barra), on the 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. I t 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.

All houses are equipped for self-catering, but if the idea of cooking is just too much, well …. welcome to enjoy meals in our pub/restaurant, The Green Turtle or visit several other little pubs/restaurants in the area, within easy walking distance of the lodge.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily and kids are very welcome at all restaurants in the area.

There are lots of activities in the area, some offered by third parties – fishing, diving, snorkelling, markets, birding, photography, etc. etc. 

We are approximately 485km north of Maputo, 25km from Inhambane town, and 15km from Tofo, in Inhambane Province, Mozambique. All roads leading to the lodge are tarred, except for the last 4km, which is a well maintained gravel road.  It has been hard packed with coral sand, making it easy to reach us with a normal passenger vehicle, without any difficulty. NO 4×4 vehicle is needed to get to us, but is good to have if you want to explore off the beaten track.

There are two flights per week (Wednesdays and Sundays) from Maputo to Inhambane with LAM, the official Mozambican airline.  Return airport transfers to and from the lodge are provided at a fee and subject to prior arrangement.  Fly-in guests can get around with local taxi operators.
