Situated in a remote location on a white sandy beach on the northern shores of Mozambique, lies the gorgeous and rustic Nuarro Lodge. Its surrounded by turquoise waters, forest and mangroves and its virtually unknown to the outside world. With so much to do you are in your own little slice of heaven here, enjoy an array of water and land activities and take a trip to the lighthouse where you can experience some of the most glorious views over the bay.
“This is another hidden gem. I loved the rustic but super comfortable rooms that open up onto the most beautiful beach. They are perfectly placed for those glorious sunsets and sunrises, and you always wake up to loads of different footprints outside your room (there is definitely some good wildlife around here). The staff are all fantastic and the food is excellent. I was very impressed with the diving and snorkeling here too, lots to see and right off the beach. This place is awesome.”

Almost everything at Nuarro Lodge is made naturally and locally, they strive to support the local communities around the area, even the uniforms are made by the local tailor. The lodge funds numerous development projects as well as being involved in education. Currently, two school rooms have been built and they plan to add more when they can. The lodge has even worked hard with the locals to encourage no fishing to protect the bay and is having a positive effect on repopulating the area.
The design of the lodge is rustic and unassuming but incredibly comfortable. It offers the perfect escape to its guests if you want a break from the outside world. It’s good to note too that everything is run on solar electricity, so no need for the luxuries such as hairdryers here. Get involved in the activities or relax in remote paradise…a heavenly and secluded getaway if you enjoy the simpler things in life.
If you enjoy water-based sports (apart from fishing of course) there are a number of exciting activities offered by Nuarro. Snorkel from the shore or head out on the boat to some wonderful diving spots, 3 of them being right in the bay itself. Kayak the mangroves or sail in a traditional dhow. If you prefer to stay on land you can head to the local village and indulge in some of the Mozambique culture, or just relax on the sandy beach with a good book and cocktail in hand.

We travelled with our 2 sons14 and 16 and we were looking forward to a week of diving together as a family and lots of chilling time which is exactly what we got. We quickly fell into a wonderful routine of 2 dives a day fitting in delicious meals around them and the most special sunsets on the beach with sundowners in hand. We did 11 outstanding dives in total and not one was in the same location and yet were never more than a 15 minute boat ride away! The diving is breathtaking with incredible visibility.
Nuarro Lodge was the perfect place for us to end a month of traveling through Eastern Africa. Tibea and Evan made us feel welcome from the first minute. The snorkelling from shore was absolutely amazing, we went every day for at least an hour to enjoy swimming around the many colorful fish and corals. We also had a wonderful relaxing massage on the beach with Maria.
We spent 3 days here in July 2019 travelling with a 5 year old. Evan, Tibea and the entire team do an excellent job and really made us feel welcome. Food was excellent and chalets are very spacious and comfortable as well as spotlessly clean. Location and is stunning. We did a kayak trip to mangroves which our daughter loved. Highly recommended.
