Nuarro is one of Mozambique’s most idyllic eco beach lodges. Located on the breathtakingly beautiful 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 among the dunes but within meters of the azure, crystal clear ocean.
The Nuarro experience offers an honest and pure approach to eco luxury - 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 is owner managed, 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 Mozambique.
Each of the 12 chalets is very spacious, with a large verandah, hammocks and sun loungers. They are strategically placed along the dunes and amongst thick vegetation for privacy and minimum environmental impact. Each is decorated with individual touches and all the furniture is made locally. Interior features include extra long king size beds placed on an elevated floor with quality linen, lounge area and a cosy bathroom both with inside and outside showers.
Every day at Nuarro offers something new and exiting - but between the months of late June and November the humpback whales return to this stretch of coastline in Mozambique. You can choose to watch these fantastic creatures and their incredible display of breaching in the bay from the comfort of your private verandah or with a drink in hand relaxing by the bar. However, the more intrepid can enjoy kayaking and diving between them as they show their splendid yet gentle strength.
Nuarro has a fully equipped dive centre and is an ideal place to dive - whether you be a learner or experienced diver, there is something for everyone. For the beginner, it offers diver entry from the shore with a gradual slope towards the wall of the continental shelf, which teams with stunning fish and beautiful coral. Moving on from the Nanatha Point there is a wall that runs for the complete circumference of the Baixo. This has somewhere in the region of 15km of wall diving and an endless amount of dive sites. There is an exciting wreck with extraordinary fish life which is well worth exploring. The great advantage about diving at Nuarro is that there are only the lodge divers on the reefs. So, you get the whole reef to yourself and dive times are usually dictated by air supply not the need to get back for the next boat of divers. Best of all, it's still pioneering stuff - they believe that they have only explored around 40% of the reefs!
