Casa Barry is a typical Mozambique Beach Resort located on the southern tip of Tofo point, 22km from Inhambane and covering an area of 13 acres. Mozambique Divers christened Casa Barry “Home of the Mantas Queen” because the famous manta rays have to be seen on dives.

At Casa Barry, divers see giant manta rays and whale sharks all year round. Turtles and dolphins are other huge attractions at this lodge which offers rustically charming thatched roofed chalets built entirely from natural materials to blend in with their natural surroundings.

Ideal for family holidays to Mozambique, eight two-bedroom (four-sleeper) chalets and three three-bedroom (six-sleeper) chalets offer plenty of room. Each chalet boasts a lounge, kitchen and bathroom with shower plus large veranda and separate braai facilities.

Ideal for couples seeking earthy accommodation in Mozambique, nine one bedroom (two-sleeper) casitas with bathroom with shower. The chalets nestle in the sand dunes away set back from the sea, close to nature.

Casa Barry borders the high-water mark and stuns guest with unsurpassed views of the entire bay. Casa Barry is the best tourist destination in the world where visitors can soak up the warmth that Mozambique offers and take advantage of amazing beaches, food and culture.

Situated right on Tofo’s main swimming beach, guests can take a short stroll across the powdery sand, straight into the warm Mozambique water. Fresh seafood and other tantalising dishes make the Casa Barry restaurant very sought after and the bar is a serene watering hole.
