“Beautiful Barra”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Loved the Barra lodge we stayed at, with the wonderful swimming pool, complete with sails, the food was great, and the owners and their staff really great. Our large villa was right on the pristine sand about 75 metres from the waters edge.

“♥ favourite beach ♥”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Best swimming, snorkeling, viewing of fish even without Gear, and shells ....
endless beauty
disliked the interruptions from hawkers, no control on beach by authorities to prevent the persistent sales pitches or begging.

“Locals taking over”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Barra is beautiful but we visited on the 1st of January and was not happy sharing the hotel pool/beach/restaurant with all the local people. There was no privacy the resort was to busy. The restaurant still offers some of the best seafood.

“Indian ocean at its best”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Beautiful sandy beach and can walk for miles. Only issue is hawkers everywhere.... Best time to walk is from 5:30 to 7 am in the morning to avoid them and also good to avoid the blistering African sun. Lots of nice bars to enjoy midday on the beach in the shade.

“Quieter away from the hotels”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

Walk the length of the beach and stop by the vendors to see what they have for sale. Enjoy a beverage at the bars, restauarants along the way. The end closer to Flamingo Bay is very quiet with one one around.
