Casa Barry is a beautiful, scenic lodge situated in Tofo, Mozambique, where our focus is to provide guests with a memorable experience. Relax and enjoy sun-filled days soaking up the warmth that Mozambique has to offer. Take our perfect beaches, our food and culture, and you have one of the best tourist destinations in the world.

The lodge is situated on the southern tip of Tofo point and covers an area of 13 acres which has been developed with the family tourist in mind. Situated right on the beach, access is by foot and no vehicles are required, should you wish to go and have a quiet swim in the clear warm water in the bay. The lodge's property borders onto the high-water mark and allows guests a wonderful view of the whole bay, especially from the restaurant and bar which overlooks the entire Tofo bay.

The lodge has been built with local materials and all accommodation is provided in reed and thatch units. Many of our guests return year after year and make Casa Barry their number one choice of holiday destination. We offer a selection of self-catering as well as non self-catering accommodation.

Tofo beach is situated in the province of Inhambane, 22 km from the City of Inhambane. Inhambane City is steeped in history as it was a favourite place for ancient sailors and slave traders to stop and replenish their resources. The natural estuary allowed vessels to enter a naturally calm area where there was always fresh water and supplies. Vasco De Gama, the famous Portuguese adventurer, made Inhambane one of his favourite stop-off points as he and his men were able to moor their ships in the calm bay and replenish before continuing to and from the East.

The name Inhambane means "the place of the friendly people" and still today this legend lives on, with the local population being extremely friendly and happy. The local population tap the juice of the coconut trees during the season when the trees are flowering and with this sap they make a favourite alcoholic drink called Sura. At certain times of the year, there are lots of celebrations and visitors are able to taste the powerful local brew at their own peril.

Casa Barry Lodge has been linked to Tofo Scuba for the past 10 years. Tofo Scuba is our preferred diving provider and is situated just 800 metres down the beach from the resort. Tofo Scuba have an on-site representative at Casa Barry Lodge who is available at all times to provide all details on the area and dive locations. They will also handle all your dive requirements including all transport between the lodge and the dive centre. Tofo Scuba also offer full equipment rental and all dive courses from their dive centre in Tofo.

The seas around Tofo are well-known for the spectacular fishing that is available all year round. The first 1000 lb marlin caught off the African coast was caught at Tofo and because of the very steep drop off caused by the Mozambique current coming very close to the land, this produces a huge array of different game fish, as well as an abundance of bill fish very close to the shore. The lodge offers fishing charters on their two fully equipped ski-boats, either with or without tackle, and with a qualified assistant who will assist in helping you to achieve that dream of landing the "Big One".

The rock and surf fishing in and around Tofo is spectacular, with wonderful ledges, sandy beaches and the famous cliffs of Tofinho, there is definitely a spot for everyone to fish from, whether it be drop shot style fishing or hunting for the big Giant King Fish. The largest bone fish caught in Tofo this season was 9,86 kg.

Casa Barry Lodge features a full restaurant and bar facility on-site. Our restaurant and deck are located on the water's edge and overlook the famous Tofo Bay swimming beach. The restaurant offers simple meals, from hamburgers and pasta, to the more extravagant and famous seafood platters. We try and offer as many fresh seafood dishes as possible, however this does sometimes depend on what our fishermen manage to catch on the day. Mozambique's famous dishes, such as peri-peri chicken, prawns and many other local dishes, are also on offer in the restaurant, being specialities of our local chefs. The lodge bar is a place where one can relax and listen to stories of unbelievable diving and fishing adventures, or watch satellite TV to catch up on what the rest of the world is doing while you are in paradise. The bar is well-stocked with international, local and South African beverages and is open from 7.30 am until 11 pm.

Casa Barry Lodge is also a proud sponsor of the Manta Ray and Whale Shark Trust and will continue to support this wonderful cause. The Manta Ray and Whale Shark Research Centre is based at Casa Barry Lodge from where they conduct and facilitate their research, conservation and education on the marine life of Mozambique. Current research focuses on sharks and rays, primarily manta rays and whale sharks. Tofo is one of the best places on earth to dive with giant manta rays and swim with gentle whale sharks. You can see giant manta rays and whale sharks 12 months of the year at Tofo. We believe that Tofo is the only place in the world, that has both species present all year round. Humback whales also visit us every year between July and the end of September.

Casa John forms the last outpost on the Tofinho Beach, just 20 km south of Inhambane. Its position provides spectacular coastal views, the sea spray tingling the decks of the three luxury houses.  

Resident Whale sharks loll in the immediate waters, competing for space when migratory Humpback whales make their appearance from early June to October. From the living areas, dolphins can be sighted chasing their catch, frustrating sea birds and interrupting your afternoon siesta.

There is no rush for you at Casa John. Designed and built by John and Jessica Youens, these houses were created with easy, relaxed living in mind. Domingo is on call to care for your needs, and will oversee daily cleaning.

Each house is fully equipped and comfortably appointed, and family and friends can spread out with ease between the three bedrooms and two bathrooms, sleeping up to six guests. An open-plan design marries the dining, kitchen and living areas. These all centre towards the verandahs that unashamedly stare on the beach views to either side and magnificent ocean ahead, while an enclosed courtyard in the centre of each house provides sheltered space should the wind pick up. Casa John is competitively priced and the cost includes electricity, water charges, domestic help, Domingo's assistance, as well as the night guard.

The Tofo marine area is increasingly gaining a reputation as one of the best diving spots in the world, and it is highly likely that you will spot a Whale shark en route to a dive and have the opportunity to snorkel with it. Invariably, mantas circle you in numbers every time you go down on scuba off the famous Manta Reef. Also on show are cheeky devil rays, turtles, large schools of tropical fish, and reef shark.

Casa John is superbly situated on a rocky cliff face, allowing excellent access for shore fishing, and local charters for deep-sea fishing are available, with spear fishing permitted off the entire coast. The nearby Tofo and Inhambane markets stock basic provisions and stable foods, including a selected range of fruit, vegetables, fresh bread and the famous 2M local beer. There is also a liquor store that sells imported beers, wines, spirits and cigarettes.  Local fishermen usually sell their daily catches of fresh fish, prawns, calamari and crayfish along the beaches and along the roads in front of the houses.

Tofo does lie in a malaria area and all malaria precautions should be taken. Casa John is however far from any marsh areas that can attract mosquitoes and enjoys an almost constant breeze that also drives them off. Each bed is equipped with an oversized mosquito net and all bedroom windows are fitted with netting for guests' comfort.
