The Nuarro Lodge overlooks the Nanatha Bay in Mozambique, Southern Africa. The magnificent Nanatha Bay naturally ends at a point known as Nuarro. This point has been formed from ancient coral rock that has eroded over time. A special reception area positioned at the top of a dune overlooking the Bay welcomes guests. From here, bush-lined walkways lead visitors to their chalets, all of which are sea-facing. 

The lodge offers 12 of these sea-facing cottages, along with a restaurant, a beach bar and an activity club that provides a variety of sports for guests to enjoy.
