Why we Love Bay View

Exclusive self-catering lodge in the breathtaking Barra peninsula, with an estuary behind and a long beach in front

The best place to leave your stress behind, explore the underwater wonderland on your doorstep and enjoy the night sky, far away from city lights.

The Green Turtle restaurant and bar situated right on the beach prepare a scrumptious daily menu specialising in succulent seafood.

Walks on the beach or snorkel on the beautiful reefs! Scuba diving is available nearby and horse rides can be arranged along the beach.

Mozambique Beach Resort Accommodation at Bayview Lodge

Discover the comfortable and attractive Bayview Lodge and Estate perched quietly between a long white beach and a dazzling estuary, on the northern end of the Mozambique Inhambane peninsula at Praia da Barra. This is definitely one of the best Mozambique self-catering places to stay in the Barra Beach and Tofo region where surfing, diving and chilling are the top things to do.  

Designed for beach magic, all Bayview Lodge Mozambique chalets sit less than 100 m from the pearly sands and safe swimming in the gentle waves fills your days. The self-catering lodge also offers half-board accommodation and features a sparkling swimming pool while guests take to the ocean daily to scuba dive and snorkel with majestic whale sharks and secretive manta rays. All roads lead to Bayview Lodge and Estate it seems, easily accessible from Inhambane and 20 km from the airport – no 4×4 needed!

Bayview Lodge offers superior self-catering or half-board Mozambique holiday accommodation, each unit fully equipped, air-conditioned and serviced daily.  These lovely fully equipped units are natural, face-brick buildings with thatch roofs and tiled floors and offer refuge for couples, families and friends in groups. Honeymoon couples will relax in one-bedroomed chalets while families can spread out in two-bedroomed houses, homes away from home, with everything that they need including private verandas and large lounges. Its great value for money and one of the best Inhambane self catering lodges.

Boardwalks link the chalets to the restaurant and the estuary is a magical retreat accessed via thrilling boardwalks. Never before have you seen such a vast, wild beach where kids can run free! There’s also a play area and beautiful gardens between the chalets and accessories. Mozambique Travel family holiday packages to Barra Bay View Lodge include plenty of ocean and beach activities for the children.

The Group House sleeps 16 and is ideal for large groups, families or a bunch of friends – with the same standard and equipment as the other units, but two bedrooms share a bathroom. Perfect for Barra Lodge packages for friends and family.

Self-catering is usually fun but guests can also treat themselves to delicious meals at The Green Turtle pub and restaurant right ON the beach with sunset views. Take a drive to find other restaurants in the area to sample Mozambican foods and drinks. These kinds of budget holidays allow freedom to explore Mozambique beaches and accommodation in your own time.

Getting to Bay View Lodge Mozambique

Self-drive from Maputo: 

Follow the “EN1” main road north towards Xai-Xai.  At “Lindela” a definite split in the road appears so take the right-hand split as it leads to Inhambane (left split goes to Maxixe and Vilanculos).  In Inhambane, turn right opposite the pier and follow the directions to Tofo, past the airport.  Continue straight to Barra, past Barra Lodge and a few other lodges, then Bayview Lodge is on the right and clearly signposted. Only the last 4-5km is a good dirt road.
