Beautifully simple is the best way to describe Nuarro. This stunning property, located in northern Mozambique feels wonderfully off the grid. The owners have commendably tried to use local crafts and staff wherever possible to create this peaceful sanctuary on the edge of the Indian Ocean, along a more than 2km-long gorgeous, white sandy beach. The result is an intimate resort that has an emphasis on relaxation with a great array of marine and terrestrial activities, and of course world-class diving.
World class diving
Did you know that Nuarro Lodge is one of the only lodges in Mozambique to offer shore-entry diving? The bay’s combination of dramatic continental shelf topography, excellent water visibility, coral & fish diversity as well as easy reef access allows for world class on and offshore diving suitable for all ranges of experience. The closeness of the continental shelf invites easy shore dives to the five pinnacles separated by white sand falls and populated by abundant fish life and coral diversity. Along the shore more advanced divers can enjoy the “Baixo do Pinda Walls” with drift, wreck and multilevel dives. Everywhere is a perfect opportunity for underwater photography and many dive sites are still to be discovered!
With such dramatic drop offs only 200 meters from the beach, the Humpback Whales come very close into the bay with their young (normally July-October each year). They learn communication skills which include delightful breaching performances! The whales cruise the bay during the day and produce a very special and unforgettable sound at night. All this can be heard and viewed from the comfort of each chalet’s private verandah.
Simple, spacious and all with a view
The spacious chalets are all built out of local materials with traditional mukuti roofs and each with a stunning view across the bay. The lodge works closely with the local community and employs staff from the nearby village, this all combines to create a genuine harmony with this unspoilt corner of Africa and provides a real Mozambique experience which can so often be lost in the name of luxury.
Nanatha Half Moon Bay at the southern point of the larger Memba Bay on the Baixo do Pinda Peninsula, the lodge offers 12 luxury beachfront chalets, nestled amongst the dunes but within meters of the azure, crystal clear Indian ocean.
