Bay View was a great place to stay in Barra. Catharina was very helpful with the booking, getting visas, and any other questions I had. The only thing was the terrible palm flies that attack at night but they were kind enough to give me some ointment for the bites. The air con was a little loud but worked nicely in the hot weather. This place is great for self-catering with your own kitchen, fridge and utensils. The location is perfect for going on a Dhow trip or water activities at Barra Reef next door.
