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... More

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... More

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... More

Sharon and Gideon provided us with superb service, accommodation and facilities. The beach was honestly 100m from our door which made the only morning traffic a beetle building his home. One of the best swimming beaches i have encountered with many restaurants available for lazy days relaxing and tanning. Neptunes, a beach bar was also amazing if you are looking... More

Dear Ana Patricia Thank you for posting a review and apology for the problem with the oven. The house to the right of our reception is where one of the owners of Bayview Lodge stay - permanently. We'll make a point of informing all guests in future that they're welcome to ask Sharon or Gideon for their assistance after hours.... More

We had cause to spend a few days in Inhambane in October 2014 after a glorious trip further north, and chose Bayview Lodge at Barra Beach to stay. Expecting it to be a let down after our stay at Pomene Lodge, it was a real highlight. The secret weapon was the absolutely fabulous restaurant there - called the Green Turtle... More

What a wonderful find this lodge was! Our cottage was lovely, equipped with a mosquito net which was beautifully draped around the beds, and a fully set up kitchen (if you want to self-cater) and a comfortable lounge and a wooden deck from which to relax with a sundowner. All of the cottages are not even a minute's walk away... More

The Bay View Lodge ist not one of those fancy, decoratively trimmed beach lodges but has a cosy and relaxed atmosphere and offers spacious, straight-forward accomodation at a fair price. Very friendly and supportive hosts, and on its grounds it has what must be one of the best sea-food restaurants along the coast (The Turtle). The beach is, of course,... More

The cottages at Bay View Lodge are spacious, clean and air-conditioned, with comfortable beds and mosquitoe nets. Accessibility to the beach is excellent for families with all their beach paraphernalia and for fisherman who need to launch their boats. The family who run the lodge, especially John and Sharon are extremely helpful and friendly. Definitely worth a stay!
