Pura Vida - Pure Life Enjoy a few days with us in paradise at the Pura Vida Lodge in Linga Linga on the sunny beaches of Mozambique. The location of the Pura Vida Lodge is very remote. On the Linga Linga peninsula right across the bay of Inhambane, Pura Vida Lodge is embedded in a natural environment surrounded by palm trees full of coconuts. All houses are just about 50 meters away from the beach and face towards sunrise. Pura Vida Lodge is only accessible via 4×4 drive or by boat. Pick up and transfer can be arranged.

We had the most amazing time spent at Pura Vida - we had the far unit 7 sleeper Estella if i remember correctly with an outside shower. So close to the beach that i could smell the salt of the ocean and feel it on my skin every morning. Paradise is quiet an understatement - however in short our stay was wonderful and relaxing. We were all able to rest and saw the locals come in daily to teach the young ones how to fish. They never bothered us or were disrespectful to our privacy even though it is their birth right to fish there. The security guards were incredibly helpful on a daily basis and our cleaning girl Lydia was sweet and efficient. Dear Daniel made sure we had a lovely stay at Pura Vida and we would recommend it to anyone to visit Pura Vida Lodge! Even over the December Holidays it wasn't crowded at all - we enjoyed every moment of it and i was convinced that i could become a beach bum after our stay there!

wow , if this is your first time , or if you have been to Moz , this is definately the place to go. absolute perfect setting. Pura Vida is ideally situated , isolated with perfect beaches all to yourself. with lodges with bars/restaurants on both sides off you , 7km each, close enough if you want to party , far away enough to truly experience the bahamas in mozambique. Daniel will assist with everything you need , and his trusty side kick Eugene will organise the best lula ( calamari) that you have ever seen and mangrove crabs. it is best to contact Daniel before to get Lula and crab for you to be ready when you arrive , as it it freshly caught sothat you can have seafood on your 1st day. lula - 400 Mts , crab 300 Mts , fish 400 -500mts / KG

My wife and I had our 10 year wedding anniversary at Pura Vida.
From arrival to departure the crew were awesome, helpful and friendly.
The lodge is really well set up and a great place to relax, cook and chat with like minded humans.
Great surf teachers and equipment.
Lots of other activities to do when you aren’t surfing.
The crew teaching yoga, SUP and surf skate were really good. There’s something for everyone
Delicious buffet style breakfast each morning.

Thanks so much to the crew for an awesome week!

What an incredible treat it was staying at Pura Vida Lodge! Daniel and his team are simply superb, super friendly and welcoming. The chalets are kept clean and the "comforts of home" are provided too. No distractions such as TV or Wi-Fi needed here, LOL.

We brought our own ice machine which was such a luxury, I definitely recommend that guests bring one along. The chalets have electricity, hot water, fridge, stove and oven, enough utensils, cutlery, crockery etc.

Being within a few meters from the warm ocean, a cool breeze blowing throughout the day and stars that light up the night sky, we had the privilege of making so many memories.

The close traveling distance to other other places, situates Pura Vida lodge in a prime location. Simply put, it is the Caribbean of Africa and such a memorable place. We will be back soon!

We were promised a quiet and private unit, but it turned out to be on the fishing route of the local village. Villagers came and went as they pleased from as early as 5am, collecting water from the shower in front of our unit, asking for sigarettes and sitting on the beach in front of us staring at us - no privacy at all. We complained on the first day but on the second day the same happened and even more people showed up, doing their ablutions right in front of us and having no regard for our space or privacy. It is clear that there is no arrangement with the local people to respect guests' privacy at the lodge.
The local road also goes right past the chalets, and every now and again a car went by right next to our unit. Children were speeding up and down in front of our unit on 4x4 ATV's, spoiling the tranquility of the area.
The photos on the website is not a true reflection of what the lodge looks like. Although it was neat and clean inside, the maintenance is not up to standard and the units are a bit tired on the outside. Some buildings have been left derelict and gives the impression that there is not proper management. We had a blocked drain and had to endure construction to fix it for a whole day. the ceiling fan in the room did not work.
We would have expected at least some discount for the inconveniences, but none was offered. The setting is very nice, but the lodge is not value for money unfortunately.
