Backed by bush and baobab forest and facing shockingly turquoise ocean waters, Nuarro Luxury Eco Lodge is located on the sugar-white shores of Nanatha Half Moon Bay in Northern Mozambique.
Nuarro has ten luxury chalets and two cottages nestled into the sand dunes dotted along the beach. Built using natural, local materials, the expansive rooms are open plan with king-size beds and vibrant furnishings, inspired by the traditional colours of Mozambique. The chalets are larger and can accommodate up to two extra beds, and are therefore perfect for families, whilst the cottages are perfect for couples. All accommodations have private access to the beach.
Undiscovered and uncrowded sites, direct access to the sea and the close proximity of the continental shelf make diving here a dream. The resort houses a PADI diving centre, and dive sites are varied, from shore dives to wreck dives and vertical wall drop offs.
Nuarro's restaurant and cocktail bar is located along the western shores of the beach and serves fresh dishes inspired by local and international styles. To the east of the lodge, The Beach Bar is the perfect spot to sip on sundowners, or between July and November, watch whales swimming in the bay.
Aside from diving, guests can snorkel, go sea kayaking, dhow sailing, take a private picnic to deserted beaches, go mountain biking and whale watching (between July and November). The more R&R inclined can enjoy a massage on the beach or read a book in the library.
Why we love it
With only lodge divers on the reef you'll feel like you have the whole reef to yourself and, with dives dictated by air supply and only around 40% of the reef yet discovered, you'll feel like a modern day Jacques Cousteau.
