About Bayview Lodge and Estate

At Bayview Lodge and Estate, we aim to spoil our guests with relaxation in all aspects. We do not have crowds, we do not have noise, but we do have space, long sandy beaches, wonderful underwater scenery a few metres from your doorstep, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and above all, we have time. The lodge and estate is situated on the northern part of the Inhambane peninsula in Mozambique, at Praia da Barra, with a long sandy beach in front and an estuary behind the lodge. We are approximately 25 km from Inhambane town, 20 km from the Inhambane International Airport, and all roads leading to Bayview Lodge and Estate are easily accessible with a normal car - NO 4x4 vehicle needed. For those that do not want to slave over a stove - meals can be enjoyed in our pub/restaurant - The Green Turtle - directly ON the beach. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily. There are also several other restaurants in the area if the idea of cooking is just too much! Our one-bedroom units are ideal for honeymoon couples, and a group of friends can share several units, enabling everybody to retreat to the peace and quiet.The Group House is a cheaper option for groups, families or a bunch of friends - with the same standard and equipment as our other units, but two bedrooms share a bathroom. Bayview Lodge offers superior self-catering accommodation, with each unit fully equipped, air-conditioned and serviced daily - except on Sundays and public holidays - for guests' convenience. Linen and bathroom towels are supplied and all beds have mosquito nets; guests only need to bring their own beach towels with. The units are face-brick buildings with thatched roofs and all floors are tiled. NO 4x4 vehicles are needed to get to us - normal passenger vehicles can easily reach us. If you wish to fly-in - we can arrange for return airport transfers from Inhambane airport to the lodge and back at a fee - please let us know if this service is needed and we'll let you know the current fee.
