Nuarro Lodge is in northern Mozambique, and is best accessed by a flight to Nampula. The lodge is named for a point on Nanatha bay, known as Nuarro, which is formed from ancient coral rock eroded over aeons.
Nuarro Lodge accommodation is in 12 luxury beachfront chalets, 10 of which have an optional twin bed upstairs, thus making them family friendly. Each chalet has is some 100 square metres, and was built utilizing traditional technology, which allows for perfect ventilation. Each chalet has an indoor and outdoor shower, lounge area, large wooden veranda and a sun-deck, where you can relax on a sun lounger or hammock, close to the Ocean. A large mosquito net covers a centralized super king size bed adorned with crispy white high quality linen. Large doors and windows open up to magnificent bay views to the North and bush views and Baobab forest to the south. Lush dune
vegetation creates a very private sanctuary. Morning coffee is served on the balcony on request before breakfast.
The main lodge building overlooks Memba Bay, and houses reception. From here there is access to the Beach Bar and Marine Activity Centre. There are bush lined walkways to your chalet.
The excellent restaurant enjoys panoramic views, as does the Cocktail Bar, of the beach and bay.
Fresh seafood and salads form much of the creative menu, which incorporates traditional and international cuisine. The restaurant area has sunken lounge area with library where coffee/tea and home-made cakes and cookies are served in the afternoons.
Activities are many and varied at Nuarro Lodge – with snorkelling, Whale and Dolphin watching (seasonal), Dhow sailing trips to Nacala Port, Ilha de Moçambique and Lúrio Falls and sea kayaking , which gives you the chance to discover the mangroves, secluded bays and deserted beaches.
Experienced PADI and IANTD diving instructors are available at any time to provide personal or group training for all levels. The closeness of the continental shelf makes Nuarro a perfect diving location. Night dives can be arranged as well as most specialties (drift dive, deep dive, nitrox, photography), and wreck dives are available at the Baixo do Pinda area.
Along the stunning Baixo do Pinda walls are the more challenging dives - these are reached by boat. The bottom topography in the Nanatha Bay is very dramatic, with sections of vertical drop-offs, swim throughs, shallow caves and colourful pinnacles. For the learner or diver looking for a more mellow experience the shallow areas (10 to 15 metres) of Nuarro home-reef are full of life. The proximity to the mangrove, optimal water temperature and visibility is reflected in the
great diversity of coral and coral dependent species.
You can also enjoy a number of land-based activities too - you can explore Nuarro’s conservation area by following the eco trails by foot or on a mountain bike.
This area has an abundance of bird life. Alternatively, you can visit an authentic cultural village and meet the friendly Macua people. There are also tours and 4x4 transportation to Ilha de Mozambique, Nacala Porto and Lúrio Falls; trip to Baixo-do-Pinda light house and fishing village
