Nacala is an interesting place, and this is definitely the pace to stay when you are there. the pizza alone is a reason to come. It is around 2-3 hours drive from Isle de Mozambique, possibly the highlight of the country.

I loved to spend the last hours of the day around the Libelula. It is calm, charming, friendly staff and the view is breath taking. the walk to the beach is a bit much but once you reach there you feel like in paradise. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon and get lost with your favourite wine and book.

I stayed here for a week whilst visiting the area. The setting is perfect, the lodges are large and really comfortable, with stunning views over the water. The food here is absolutely top class, the locally caught fish is amazing. Thanks to Jess, Milo and the team for a fantastic stay.

My girlfriend and I just spent 3-nights at this tranquil getaway. You can't go wrong here; fantastic location overlooking the ocean, excellent, friendly and smiley staff, delicious food (blown away by the prawns and pizza), soft white sand and calm, clear water to dip into. Manager Jess was always around for a friendly chat and was super helpful in guiding us back to Nampula. Simply a comfortable, peaceful place to enjoy. We would absolutely return here.

Ian and Pipa’s Libelula Lodge overlooking Nacala Bay is an unsuspecting gem. Their hospitality and all-rounded friendliness was thoroughly well received after quite long and complicated journeys and their flexibility around our booking was superb. The restaurant is, also, well worth a visit and serves some tastefully prepared food. The beach below the lodge offers an excellent spot to relax and enjoy what Nacala Bay has to offer.
