Sunset Lodge is situated approximately 496kms north of Maputo on the Barra Point with mangrove swamps which frame the calm waters of the Inhambane Bay.
Barra is well known for its game fishing & boat launching from the beach is smooth & easy. The vast array of unexplored reefs which team with marine life, are perfect for snorkelling or scuba.
Sunset Lodge is perfectly positioned to capture the gentle sea breezes which offer a refreshing relief from the balmy summer conditions.
The Thirsty Parrot restaurant & bar serves up a variety of hearty meals as well as the most popular cocktails in town. The entertainment area consists of a semi wrap-around swimming pool with bar service directly to those relaxing in the pool (great ringside seats for those must-see sports events) & a large airy restaurant & deck area. This offers an ideal setting to witness the most spectacular sunsets over the bay whilst sipping on an exotic cocktail.
