Why We Love Ossimba Beach Lodge

It’s the perfect tropical paradise beside a secluded beach at the entrance of the beautiful Nacala Bay.

It’s an Eco-Lodge complete with solar energy, refreshingly drinkable bore-hole water, and upscale comforts. A rare combination of luxury, and sustainability.

The restaurant serves top-class fresh cuisine – prawns, lobsters, calamari, octopus, fresh fish and spicy grilled chicken. Malva pudding and pizzas too.

Private beach villas, ocean villas and a honeymoon villa offer cool luxury interiors after long days in the sun and surf.

The Aqualung branded dive centre offers a range of PADI dive courses and incredible underwater sightings!

Diverse Beach and Ocean Activities at Ossimba Eco Lodge Nacala

The best way to start every day is a walk to the beach every morning for that wake-up swim, then enjoy freshly brewed coffee and breakfast in the central lounge and dining areas. Later, a cool indigenous forest awaits birding and hiking quests into a wilderness so typical of northern Mozambique. A talented chef creates mouth-watering cuisine using organic produce and fresh catches of the day – a fusion of Mozambican and international flavours keeps visitors coming back for more. 

Relax on the deck all day with a book or take up deep sea diving at Ossimba Beach Lodge. Fantastic wrecks and other fascinating dive sites attract beginner and pro divers. Expert instructors kit divers out with Aqualung branded gear and the slick semi-inflatable dive boat for 12 people roars out to sea. From exquisite corals and colourful fish to breaching whales in season, divers also experience life-changing dolphin interactions. Kayaking through magically preserved mangrove swamps is a great family activity and stand-up paddle boarding ideal for calm days on flat ocean surfaces. 

Village tours and boat cruises to Ilha de Mocambique include tons of culture and history and a great opportunity to eat in a typical Portuguese or Mozambican street café.
