Located on the shores of the warm and azure Indian Ocean in northern Mozambique, lies the remotely, but specifically chosen Nuarro Lodge. Backed by the wild Mozambican bush, fringed with old and established baobab trees to the back; and fronted by the calm and aquamarine bay of Nanatha, the lodge is peppered along a more than 2km-long, powdery-white beach in the middle.

Built from natural materials, by the local community, makes the environmentally sensitive. Nuarro Lodge, the ideal venue in which to relax and unwind in these equally pristine surroundings. Nuarro Lodge is all about friendly people, top-class activities and fantastic food, showcasing a spectacular, pristine environment in the most responsible way possible!

The Nanatha bay ends at a wonderful point known as Nuarro (which is how the lodge got it's name). This formed from ancient coral rock which has eroded over aeons of time. In keeping with the local theme of the lodge, we decided on a local name, and Nuarro was the perfect choice.

Chalet Accommodation

There are twelve stunning beach-front chalets (this is how we call our ‘rooms’), peppered along the (more than 2km long) beachfront.

The 100m² chalets are all built from local, natural materials and were built by local people. Built on the dunes, designed to blend in with the natural environment as much as possible, all chalets have sea view and private access down to the beach. Some of the chalets are larger and can accommodate up two extra beds, making it perfect for families.

The dune vegetation gives the chalets sufficient privacy. The large veranda doors and elevation ensures a lot of ventilation through the chalet, maximizing on the constant sea breeze. Each chalet has a generous mosquito-net-engulfed, king-sized bed that can also be converted into two three-quarter single beds.

Accommodation types

There are family rooms (chalets 5 and 10), double rooms (chalets 1, 2 and 6) and triple rooms (remaining chalets). Double rooms have a king size bed, Tripple rooms a kingsize bed and a single bed. Family rooms have a Kingsize bed and 2 single beds in the room.

Interior of the Chalets

The open-plan bathroom has a refreshing shower, vanity slab with a basin, separate eco-toilet and an outdoor shower (for rinsing off salt water and possible moonlit showers for the more adventurous). A large individual solar panel system has been connected to each chalet, in order to provide, the very best hot water shower with great water pressure, while still being sensitive to the environment.

Furnishings include a hand-made desk with chairs, and some comfortable day loungers inside and a large veranda with an extremely comfortable hammock. This is the perfect place to relax in the afternoon, after some fantastic diving in morning! All chalets’ soft furnishings and décor have been put together with the capulana (fabric used by Mozambican women for clothing) in mind. This makes each chalet individually vibrant with the bright colours of traditional Mozambique!

There are plenty of plugs for electronics such as cameras, phones and laptops, and 24 hour solar generated power a day to recharge.

There is a footpath that runs along the rear of all the chalets to allow access and ease of walking. Alternatively access can be gained through the private pathways to each chalet from the beachfront.

Beaches

Nuarro Beach

The Nuarro beach fringes the bay and runs along the front of the entire lodge, making a half moon shape, all the way past the village and to the point of the Nanatha bay.

The beach itself spans more than 2km in length, which makes for some magnificent early morning runs (on the low tide) or late afternoon romantic strolls.

There is often some beach volleyball (sometimes rather intense competitions) in front of the activities centre, or sometimes the remnants of some fantastic sandcastle building, designed by the happy, duly occupied ‘little’ Nuarro guests, to be found on the beach. Some guests even opt for a back massage under the shade of the Casuarina trees on the beach.

Access to the beach is easy, right from your own private pathway from your chalet, or the beach bar and activities centre or the restaurant.

Of course, Nuarro is one of the only lodges in northern Mozambique that has shore entry diving and snorkeling right from the beach!

Private Beaches

Not only do we have the spectacular 2km long lodge beach, but there are many other private beaches a short distance from the lodge.

We can arrange a wonderful picnic for you to spend a romantic day alone with your loved one, or a memory-filled day with your family. Please see our section on beach picnics for more information on these.

There are quite a few private beaches that we utilize, and these are accessible either by boat, mountain bike ride, car or a short walk away.

Nuarro Bay

Due to the relationships with the surrounding communities and Nuarro Lodge, all parties have agreed that Nuarro Bay is to be a protected area.

The biodiversity of the bay is unprecedented. There is a coral reef near the shoreline and many other fantastic reefs within the bay. The structure is a steady slope toward the edge of the continental shelf, which makes the marine life really special and diverse.

Amenities

Beach Bar

To relax the day away, chill out after an exhilarating activity or simply watch the whales swimming in the bay (from July to November), the Beach Bar is a great relaxed spot where light snacks can be enjoyed throughout the day. The Beach Bar is located on the eastern side of the lodge, next to the Activity Centre and has a large wooden deck giving a full sea view and beach access. Comfort and a laid-back informal atmosphere are the themes at this spot.

There is also wifi in this area, so a super place to check in on home or (only if you have to), the office!

Restaurant

Located on the western end of our beach, is our open and elegant restaurant and cocktail bar. Stunning vistas out over the bay and Nanatha Rock.

All of our delectable meals are served here, and it is a popular place to hang out, relaxing amongst the enormous cushions in the sunken lounge, tasting some bar snacks, sipping some ice cold beverages, and recalling the day’s events to fellow guests and Nuarro team.

Our menu changes constantly, but you can expect the freshest seafood delights available, prepared in both local and international styles. Chef Afonso and his kitchen crew are very open to try and accommodate any dietary restrictions and child requirements (and eating times), with sufficient notice!

Reception

The guests of Nuarro are welcomed to Nuarro at the reception area, which positioned at the top of a dune overlooking the bay. Here is where the guests will get a full briefing on arrival, and also have the opportunity to peruse our gift shop, where we have a wonderful array of handmade items for sale.

The reception area also has a guest computer for internet access or wi-fi is also available for you to log on from your own devices.

Guests can either enjoy the bush-lined walkways to their chalets from reception, take the beach route or be driven, if more convenient.

Next to the reception is the Managers Office, where you will always find someone to help you, should you require anything.

Just a short walk down towards the sea, you will find our comfy beach bar, where cocktails are a plenty and the beers always cold! A scrumptious snack menu is also available for those post dive munchies. A bit further along, you will find our Activities Centre.

Activities Centre

Located next to the beach bar, the activities centre is where you will learn about all the various things there are to do at Nuarro! In addition to diving, there are an extensive array of activities such as snorkeling, whale watching (seasonal), sea kayaking, picnic trips to isolated beaches, mountain biking and village trips.

The Activities Centre also has a comfortable sitting area with books and magazines (and a television –shhhhhh). It doubles up as a classroom, where you can learn all you need to know about diving, if you do not already.

Come and peruse through the equipment, chat to our friendly team, who are always around the Activities Centre, to help and guide you to a suitable activity.

Glow diving

Did you know that much marine life is fluorescent? We are pioneers of glow diving or fluorescent diving in Mozambique. Our calm water and easy shore entry allow excellent opportunities for night diving, so why not to discover something completely new?!

Fluorescent or “Fluo” diving has recently taken the diving community by storm and Nuarro is the first and only dive centre in Mozambique to off this experience to our clients. Chemical compounds contained in the tissues of many marine animals react to UV light causing them to fluoresce in brilliant reds, purples and greens, we take UV lights and filters on night dives to experience the reefs like never before! Be among the first to get the Fluo Dive bug!

Snorkeling

Nuarro Bay is a dream for snorkelers. Snorkelling from the beach.

The Nuarro Bay is a sea life paradise with beautiful coral reef just a short swim from the beach. There are two reefs that are often used for snorkelling, these are:

Enupa Reef (house reef) – Shore entry: 100m swim, from 4 to 12m deep. Enupa Reef lays in front of the Activities Centre about 100m from the beach and is part of the Nuarro Marine Reserve. This is an easy and relax snorkel where you can spend lots of time around 5m but adventure down to 12m if you wish. Snorkel here can be done at most times of the day, but high tide is the best time as the entrance is easier. Photographers will be delighted with the macro life where they can spot many kinds of shrimps and crabs, snake and moray eels, nudibranchs, flatworms, and other marine life like gobies, egg cowries, butterfly-fish, wrasse, damsel-fish, blue spotted stingrays, puffer-fish.

Fish Alley, Boat entry, from 3 to 30m (in places sheer wall drops to 60m+). Fish Alley offer suitable conditions for all levels of divers and snorkelers. Therefore it is an ideal place to go when part of the group wants to dive and part wants to snorkel, everyone will leave the water with smiles in their faces. The shallowest part have a little bit of all, coral bommies, sea grass and the top of the wall. Coral bommies offer every one his own patch of coral with plenty of colours. Garden eels, cowries, ribbon eels, gobies, sand perches, mullets and puffers are found. This is a site where many fish come to visit cleaning stations; bi-colour and common cleaner wrasse compete to service the gills, skins and fins of all kinds of clients, sometimes not much bigger than themselves. Lyre tail and saddle back hog-fish are usually seen around as well as the Indian and African sand wrasse.

All equipment is available at the Nuarro Activity Centre.

Whale Watching

Nuarro is a fantastic place for whale watching. The calm blue water and close droop off allow us spectacular sights of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) during our winter. Humpbacks can be seen from the comfort of your chalet, or you can venture out with us on the boat for a close encounter. During whale watching with the Nuarro team you will receive in-depth information about them, assist in research and even have a chance to listen to the magical song of the whales with the assistance of a hydrophone. Of course, the quality of the encounter does not depend only on us as whales are a wild animal, however we will do our best to offer you the best whale experience in Mozambique.

The whale season starts in July and ends in November, with the peak season in August and September. Each year the pregnant humpback whales move from the cooler Antarctic waters to the east coast of Southern African to give birth and nurture their calves, before making the voyage back down to their summer feeding grounds. Sometimes you can also hear the whales singing underwater when snorkelling or diving!

Did you know ...

Humpback's can grow to around 16m long, weighing between 30-50 tons. Females are larger than males Distinctive white patches on the underside of the fluke (tail) are like fingerprints. Baleen whales are seasonal feeders and carnivores that filter tiny crustaceans , plankton and small fish. Eat around 2 tons of food, normally in two feedings, per day. Can dive for up to 30 minutes and to a depth of 150-200m) Can often be seen: Spyhopping (bobbing with their head out the water to look around) Lobtailing (sticking their tails out the water, swinging it around and then slapping the waters surface) Breaching (launching their bodies high out the water and splashing down again)

Massage Treatments

One of the best activities is doing “nothing”.

Maria, our Mozambican masseuse, who was born and lives in Baxio do Pinda (the village) has no formal training, but has learnt her trade from many mentors. She provides the most relaxing back and full body massages under the trees on the beach, this is certainly the best venue for a massage surrounded by ocean energies, breeze and sunshine. Rejuvenate body, mind and soul at this special holiday destination.

Feel her midas touch, and relax and enjoy!

(Massage in chalet is also one of the possibilities)

Other Activities

Mountain Biking

Mountain biking is a wonderful way to discover the Baixo-do-Pinda peninsula. Cycle to the old Portuguese lighthouse in the village and enjoy spectacular views.

There are currently 10 BTT mountain bikes, with standard equipment. For the land-lovers, or for a change of scenery from the beach, grab a bike (and some water) and cycle down to the lighthouse (around 45 minutes), or for a closer experience, peddle over to the private beach for a quick swim and back again (around 15 minutes).

Bird Watching

The Nuarro peninsula has a large variety of birds, and this is an informal activity, that all guests partake in (whether they want to or not), as the sounds and sights of the feathered friends are a 'normal' daily sight. If you venture out to the mangrove by kayak, you have a good chance of seeing various species of kingfisher. In and around the lodge, you are likely to see the lilac breasted rollers, and the brutalise coucal, to name but a few.

Beach Picnic

A dream comes true during your Beach Picnic. The ultimate indulgence! Allow yourself to be taken by boat (or road) to one of the deserted beaches and enjoy a delicious picnic prepared by the chef of the restaurant at Nuarro.

Dhow Sailing

The dhow is a traditional boat used by locals for transporting goods and for fishing in the bay. Pack some sundowners and snacks and you can sail a beautiful hand crafted local dhow. It is imperative that a booking is made for this prior to your arrival, as we do not have our own dhow and prefer to support the local community, which takes some arranging. Sailing trip on this elegant wooden boat is an experience that all guests entering Mozambique should have!

Kayaking

Simply spectacular is the Sea Kayaking activity in the bay. Visit the pristine beaches situated between majestic rock formations. Pamper yourself with a delicious picnic delivery. Do not forget to kayak through the mangroves. An experience never to be forgotten.

Some guests have had some wonderful dolphin (and even whale) interactions on our sea kayaks in the past, so try your luck!

Guided tours through the mangroves … The mangrove trip departs by boat, which takes around 20 minutes to the entrance of the mangrove, where the kayak route will start for around 30-45 minutes. The tour can only be done between the tides to be able to see crabs, mudskippers and some birds, like the kingfisher.

Paddling Board

There is no better way of exploring the bay of cruising on a paddle board. Paddling is about having endless fun and getting remarkably fit at the same time. It also happens to be one of the fastest growing water sports in the world.

About Nuarro Lodge

Nuarro Lodge is located on the Baixo do Phinda peninsula in the Memba district of Nampula province, in northern Mozambique. The peninsula is virtually unknown to the outside world.

Marine Reserve – Nuarro lodge is comprised with the conservation of both land and the ocean, protecting hundreds of hectares of forest, mangrove and sea. The marine reserve was created in 2007 in common accord with the local community, to protect and recover the coral reefs surrounding the lodge. Over the years, the coral reefs have recovered, turning into a perfect safe habitat for thousands of colourful fish and stunning sea creatures such as nudibranchs, shrimps and many other invertebrates.

You can find the village woman are netting on the low tide and fisherman still catching fish on a wooden dug out, using both nets and line, the same method of fishing and way of living from more than a hundred year ago. Nuarro employees about 80 local people. The people are Macua.

The peninsula feels like an island surrounded by small private beaches, although conveniently Nuarro can be reached by car and does not require a plane or boat like an island. There is also so much to do at Nuarro, besides water activities, guests can also participate in other activities such as mountain biking or even a trip to the lighthouse at Baixo do Phinda to enjoy the incredible views of the bay.

Access to the World Heritage Site, Ilha de Mozambique (Mozambique Island), is easily done by road from Nuarro Lodge, which makes a great combination package.

Nuarro Lodge is a green project which generates its own electricity and clean water using renewable energy.

Nuarro lodge supports local community initiatives and during the construction of the lodge we also built a community centre.

History of Nuarro Lodge

Nuarro Lodge, this all started with the dream of the owners. They want to enable people to experience the wonders and beauty of Mozambique and they want to achieve this is an ethical way.

During its construction, skilled builders, carpenters and electricians were employed to assist in the training of the local unskilled people, so that they will have the chance to empower themselves and improve their livelihoods.

Land, time, skills, money, enthusiasm and energy were invested. In return Nuarro brings to its neighbours and partners greater financial security and general social development. Based on an established memorandum.
