Travessia is an Eco Beach Lodge that is all about understated barefoot luxury and participative, responsible tourism. Off the beaten track, the lodge is nestled between coastal palm forest and the dunes lining the beach of this un-spoilt coastline. Take a walk on the endless beach, relax in the shade of the palm grove, paddle out, gaze at the sea from the pool deck or venture out for a guided bush walk. Sophisticated whilst down to earth, with no one around for miles, Travessia is for families, individual travelers, and couples alike. Their secluded casas have 180° sea views, spacious decks, a hammock and ensuite outdoor showers. The open plan family room accommodates parents with up to three kids. All buildings are constructed using elevated wooden decks with timber or roll up canvas walls under a thatched roof. The lodge is entirely solar powered ensuring a light environmental footprint.
Travessia Beach Lodge is situated between coastal forest and palm trees on the dunes along an endless beach. At low tide, the surf is perfect to take the kayaks for a paddle and both children and adults will enjoy boogie boarding whilst the little ones love the small natural “pools” that are created when the tide goes out. Travessia’s beach is neither affected by excessive tidal movements nor by strong currents and therefore safe to swim for guests of all ages throughout the day. You will have the beach almost entirely to yourself, except for local fishermen and the occasional children or women from the neighboring village. Depending on the weather offshore, you will find plenty of different shells and bleached coral on your beach walk.
For couples seeking out that level of romance, Travessia might well be the ideal spot. Leaving the tar road and making your way along a sandy track that winds itself through the coastal palm forest, you get that sense of being cast away. At some point, you will think you must be lost until eventually you catch the first glimpse of the sea. Minutes later you will reach Travessia Beach Lodge. The elevated casas have been carefully positioned to maximize views and privacy.
