Beautifully simple is the best way to describe Nuarro Lodge. This stunning property, located in northern Mozambique feels wonderfully off the grid.
The owners have commendably tried to use local crafts and staff wherever possible to create this peaceful sanctuary on the edge of the Indian Ocean, along a more than 2km-long gorgeous, white sandy beach. The result is an intimate resort that has an emphasis on relaxation with a great array of marine and terrestrial activities, and of course world-class diving.
Located off Nanatha Half Moon Bay at the southern point of the larger Memba Bay on the Baixo do Pinda Peninsula, the lodge offers 12 luxury beachfront chalets, nestled among the dunes but within meters of the azure, crystal clear Indian ocean.
World class diving
Did you know that Nuarro Lodge is one of the only lodges in Mozambique to offer shore-entry diving? The bay’s combination of dramatic continental shelf topography, excellent water visibility, coral & fish diversity, as well as easy reef access, allows for world class on and offshore diving suitable for all ranges of experience.
The closeness of the continental shelf invites easy shore dives to the five pinnacles separated by white sand falls and populated by abundant fish life and coral diversity. Along the shore, more advanced divers can enjoy the “Baixo do Pinda Walls” with drift, wreck and multilevel dives. Everywhere is a perfect opportunity for underwater photography and many dive sites are still to be discovered!
With such dramatic drop-offs only 200 meters from the beach, the Humpback Whales come very close into the bay with their young (normally July-October each year). They learn communication skills which include delightful breaching performances! The whales cruise the bay during the day and produce a very special and unforgettable sound at night. All this can be heard and viewed from the comfort of each chalet’s private verandah.
Simple, spacious and all with a view
The spacious chalets are all built out of local materials with traditional mukuti roofs and each has a stunning view across the bay. The lodge works closely with the local community and employs staff from the nearby village, which all combines to create harmony in this unspoilt corner of Africa and provides a real Mozambique experience that can so often be lost in the name of luxury.
Nuarro’s open-sided restaurant and cocktail bar are located on the western end of the lodge beach with stunning vistas out over the bay and Nanatha Rock. All of Nuarro’s delectable meals are served here, and it is a popular place to hang out, relax among enormous cushions in the sunken lounge, taste some bar snacks, sip ice cold beverages, and recall the day’s events to fellow guests and Nuarro team.
The menu changes constantly, but you can expect the freshest seafood, prepared in both local and international styles. Chef Afonso and his kitchen crew are very open to accommodate any dietary restrictions and child requirements (and eating times), with sufficient prior notice.
