Surrounded by an infinite stretch of white sand and clear water, lies the idyllic paradise haven known as Barra Beach Club. Barra - Inhambane is one of the only few north-facing beaches in Mozambique thus allowing for protected calm waters and squeaky clean coconut lined beaches. Previously one of the first beach cottages in Barra, it was creatively converted in 2010 into the romantic, traditional yet chic boutique hotel of today. We invite you to experience Mozambique at it’s finest at Barra's most exclusive and luxurious hidden gem.
