Our trip to Inhambane was almost perfect!
This time we travelled with some friends and although “Barra” was not new for us, it was the first time that we’ve stayed in Bayview Lodge. The lodge location is perfect, just behind the sand dunes a mere 250 meters from the water. The houses are serviced twice daily, the beach decor is simple but very comfortable, air-con in the bedrooms and a full equipped kitchen made a BIG difference. I would only recommend that for longer periods of stay that all the linen and towels would be changed every 3/4 days. The hosts were absolutely helpful and really looked after us and we can’t wait to come back.
We also did some dives but we had a very bad experience, being left at sea for 45 minutes until we were rescued by a friendly fisherman that performed a rescue like a professional! Thank you so much “Stewart” for being our saviour! We were diving with Barrareef divers.
Besides this incident our holidays were stunning and staying at Bayview was really great. Thanks John and Diane we will definitely be back.
