About Avocet Lodge

Avocet Lodge provides an idyllic self-catering beach holiday escape at Praia da Barra, a tropical paradise lying 520 km north of Maputo. Well situated, this stylish lodge is an easy walk from the lovely beach and close to other lodges, dive centres and restaurants.

The lodge features four luxury en-suite bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, a TV, an entertainment area with a patio and a barbecue, a swimming pool, and enjoys an amazing sea view. All of the rooms have fans and mosquito nets, and features include fresh borehole water, 24-hour security, and a daily domestic service.

Sail across the bay from Inhambane to Maxixe, pronounced "ma-sheish", on a traditional Indian Ocean lateen-rigged dhow. Experience the teeming life of the tropical coral reefs, go scuba-diving with manta rays, catch big kingfish, or kick of your shoes and go beach-combing. For scuba divers and game fisherman, this is the place to be.

Beach: Located within walking distance from the beach.
