About Barra Dica Resort

Barra Dica Resort is situated on a pristine beach with the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. It is 485 km north of Maputo and access is on tarred roads until the last 3.5 km leading to the lodge, which is sandy.

We have 16 Chalets that are fully equipped with the necessary equipment. Each Chalet has two bedrooms; one bedroom has a double bed, the second bedroom has twin beds and there are twin beds in the lounge. The bathroom has a warm water shower and toilet. There is an open-plan kitchen and living area. Electricity is supplied 24 hours by EDM. The units are serviced except on Sundays and Public Holidays. We also have 6 Campsites that all have power points and private ablution facilities.

Barra Dica Resort is bordered by the Inhambane estuary on one side and the ocean on the other. The warm waters offer safe bathing and smooth and easy boat launching. Fishing grounds and diving reefs are nearby and the reefs offer endless pleasures for divers and snorkelers. The lodge is nestled amongst the coconut groves. There are many actives to be enjoyed within the area such as snorkeling, scuba diving, catamaran yacht charter, boat fishing and sightseeing. Quad bike through the coconut plantations and local villages, following these tracks and paths allows one to experience the real Mozambique. Take a trip on a dhow and feel a great sense of history as the dhows are still built as they were in ancient times. This is something that must be experienced before this age old tradition dies out.

Safari: Many outdoor activities on offer; Kayak tours of the Estuary / Mangroves (guided or unguided). Village Cultural tours, Snorkeling - Sea Horses, Pansy Island Exploring, Dhow Trips with local Fisherman. Fishing trips, Quad bike Out-rides, etc. etc.

Beach: We are nestled among the coconut palms, on a peninsula, with the ocean on one side and estuary on the other side, the water surrounds the resort. The beach is safe for swimming and never crowded, chances are you'll have the beach all to yourself.

Wedding Venues: We offer a blank-canvas, to model your special day according to your needs. We can accommodate 100 guest on-premise, Bar and Restaurant also on-premise. Beautiful quiet beach for ceremony.

Family friendly: We focus on Family, for Little-one's; splash pool, massive sandpit, jungle gym, slide, sea-saw & swings. Games like Table Tennis, Chess, Finger Board and card games, also for rainy days. Shallow's of the estuary is safe to play in; tubes and kayaks.

Romantic: Best Sunsets, Sun-downer dhow trips, Moonlight walks on the beach, candlelight dinner on isolated beaches. Arrange beach weddings / vow renewal ceremonies. This 'island' with deserted beaches in the off season is a paradise for Honeymoon couples.

I'll start with the positive, Herliaan and her boys are very friendly and for the most part we enjoyed our stay at Areia Branca. Unfortunately we were not informed beforehand that they will do maintenance while we stayed there and the noise that went with it was very disturbing.

For the rest, the roads were good, people were friendly and we had lovely...

One chalet's toilet did not work well. Something like that should be attended to. The laundromat should be operated professional, my clothes ended up at another guest etc. My Suggestion is to make use of other service providers.

We had a wonderful stay, beautiful views, tranquil place. Herliaan and her family were kind and accommodating making it a pleasurable experience. Would recommend Areia Branca Lodge to anyone planning a trip to Mozambique.
