“A peaceful beach hideaway not far from Maputo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

If you get tired of the hustling stress of the city life in Maputo and want a calm and simple place to rest, go to Jay´s Beach Lodge. Situated at the Macaneta peninsula about 1 hours drive from Maputo capital of Mozambique to the crossing of the Inkomati river. From there catching the ferry may be a nuicance in high season. On the other side you either have to ask for a lift from the Lodge or be a clever driver with your own 4 x 4, since the sandy road may be challenging. The huts are simple, basic and fantastic peaceful with a lot of bird views and sounds from the forest protecting the place from the sea. We bought our own huge prawns from local fishermen and got it prepared by the kitchen staff at the lodge. The best New Years meal we have had for years!
