Miramar Barra is a relaxing hideaway in Mozambique, and is ideal for groups or families to enjoy an unforgettable self-catering holiday in one of Mozambique’s hotspots. At Miramar Barra you will have a serene and private experience like never before. Inhambane is just a short drive away and you can even make use of the convenient international airport should members of your party want to fly in.
This safe and private holiday house is just 30 m from the ocean, and can accommodate up to a maximum of ten guests. It comprises four en-suite sea facing rooms, and an open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining area. The first and second bedrooms each contain a double bed. The third and fourth bedrooms each contain a king-size bed that can be converted to twin beds, and one of which has a bunk bed. All rooms are equipped with high speed fans.
The living area consists of a fully equipped open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining area. The patio, off the living area, features stunning sea views, and leads to a garden area with braai facilities.
Activities in this area are unbeatable and include deep sea fishing, scuba diving, spearfishing, and free-diving. Those with their own boats will find the launches easy and have the option to explore the massive Inhambane estuary with highlights like pansy island, snorkelling in sea horse nurseries, and fly fishing.
Love watching the moon rise and the sun rise, both over the ocean. Or just sitting and marvelling at the big open view. Snorkelling at the very low tide brought by the full moon was also amazing.Juma, who helps take care of the house, was friendly and quite helpful but very unassuming. The house is simple, but that's part of the beauty of it – it's a perfect place to get off your screens, enjoy the majesty of the sea and the peacefulness of a quiet perch above an almost empty beach.
We spent 10 days at Miramar Barra and will definitely be back, for many reasons.<div><br /></div><div>Firstly, the view from the house is magnificent and the sound of the waves lull you to sleep every night. Secondly, and perhaps most importantly, there is a constant gentle breeze off the sea. While this may not seem a significant benefit, it makes a huge difference in the December heat. Any house at beach level has no breeze, just the sun. It was such a relief to come out of the sweltering sun and to enjoy the view while cooling down. It has the added benefit of keeping the mosquito's away too – we never saw one mozzie in 10 days! Thirdly, each room is a good size, with a sea view and has its own bathroom, therefore comfortably accommodating large groups without feeling claustrophobic.<div><br /></div><div>Add to this the domestic help, the fabulous snorkelling site outside the door, and the close proximity to the local beach bars, and you have the perfect holiday destination in Barra. We loved our stay – peaceful and relaxing with fabulous memories made.<br /><div> </div></div></div>

Superb position right on the ocean. Great fishing a 100m from the veranda! Everything was neat and in working order with super friendly cleaning service daily. Highly recommended for peace and quiet!
