Chuiba Bay Lodge is ideal for a very relaxing Mozambique getaway with plenty of sunshine, warm water and high-end hospitality. It’s one of our go-to recommendations if you’re finishing up on your safari but want to spend the last few days of your trip by the beach.
It’s within easy reach from Pemba Airport, just 15 minutes’ drive away, but far enough from the crowds. Nestled on a private beach, you can walk out along the water's edge for miles and still feel like you’re the only person there.
We also love that the owners are still involved in the day-to-day operations of this luxury lodge. Delio and Maria are a Portuguese couple who helped build the place from the ground up and work hard to make sure you are always comfortable and at home. They are always open for a chat, and will gladly offer up some of their knowledge of the local area.
Apart from their warm hospitality, the meals served at their on-site restaurant will truly make your stay memorable. The food is off the charts too, with dishes prepared using the freshest farm-to-fork, or should we say sea-to-spoon ingredients, think fresh Marlin, prawns and calamari. Yes, please!
There are two swimming pools on-site, but the lure of the ocean is hard to resist. At low tide, you can explore the shallow pools with their bounty of fish, crabs, sea urchin and starfish. Kayaks and snorkelling equipment is also available for you to use.
