Bayview lodge is by far the best and most reasonable place to stay in Barra. Its protected from the weather, but yet right on the beach. the host and hostess shows fantastic service and hospitality. The cottages are spacious and comfortable and have 24 hour security. Visit your dream house on the beach!!

Stayed: June 2016

The basic, but clean accommodation is a few steps from one of Mozambique's beautiful beaches and 10 minutes drive from Tofu Beach. Spend some time on the beaches conversing with the friendly local traders - selling handmade souvenirs. Most of the self-serving accommodations have a sea view. You can spend your time enjoying the beach or marvel in the African sunset having sun downers on your own private deck. Try to spare some time to visit Imhabane city - a mixture of old-world colonial charm and modern, informal African enterprises.

Room Tip: Unit 5 is only a few steps from the beach and restaurant. Has a wooden walkaway to the restaurant.

If you were closer to the beach you would be ON the beach! The self catering accommodation is simple but comfortable and importantly has air conditioning in all the bedrooms. Sharon who manages the lodge is a star and will go out of her way to make sure her guests are happy, even loaning you some of her husband's beer when you run out :)

Room Tip: Chalet 5 is the closest to the beach.

We were headed for an other lodge but arrived when there was a music festival in the area. Most of the lodges were full so we ended up at Barra View Lodge. It turned out to be a very good place to stay. We got a whole house to ourselves about a hundred metres from the beach. The house was clean and well equipped. We have nothing to complain about. There was even reasonably fast wifi at the reception.
Next to us on the beach was a bar/restaurant called Neptunus that served quite OK food and at the end of our stay the Green Turtle opened. That's the restaurant right in front of the lodge. One rainy evening we had an excellent dinner there.

We spent our honeymoon (Aug '15) at Bayview, what an amazing experience! Right from the start Catharina was so helpful and friendly, Sharon and Gideon were incredible, always willing to go out of their way to ensure we had a good holiday, and the guards and cleaners were always smiling and friendly. Our unit was 70 steps (we counted) from an unbelievable swimming beach (long, flat, no rocks, warm water) and maybe 100 more from Neptunes beach bar (cold R&R's and good food). One evening as we reached the beach (60 steps in) we were greated by two hump back whales breaching and hitting the water with their tales! The unit was incredibly well maintained and kitted out (gas stove, stainless steel pots, aircon, fluffy towels and comfortable bed). As for Barra the area it is heaven on earth, the most incredible beach and estuary I have ever seen (we spent one day watching flamingos and the other swimming with dolphins and whale sharks), the people are friendly and welcoming, and the we couldn't have asked for better weather. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: All rooms are literally on the beach but unit 5 is something special!
