Mountain biking is a wonderful way to discover the Baixo-do-Pinda peninsula. Cycle to the old Portuguese lighthouse in the village and enjoy spectacular views.
There are currently 10 BTT mountain bikes, with standard equipment. For the land-lovers, or for a change of scenery from the beach, grab a bike (and some water) and cycle down to the lighthouse (around 45 minutes), or for a closer experience, peddle over to the private beach for a quick swim and back again (around 15 minutes).
The Nuarro peninsula has a large variety of birds, and this is an informal activity, that all guests partake in (whether they want to or not), as the sounds and sights of the feathered friends are a ‘normal’ daily sight. If you venture out to the mangrove by kayak, you have a good chance of seeing various species of kingfisher. In and around the lodge, you are likely to see the lilac breasted rollers, and the brutalise coucal, to name but a few.
A dream comes true during your Beach Picnic. The ultimate indulgence! Allow yourself to be taken by boat (or road) to one of the deserted beaches and enjoy a delicious picnic prepared by the chef of the restaurant at Nuarro.
Spend your day soaking up the sun, reading a great book, swimming in the sea and tantalising your taste buds with Chef’s wonderful array of beach snacks, which include fresh wraps, samosa’s and other delectable surprises!
The dhow is a traditional boat used by locals for transporting goods and for fishing in the bay. Pack some sundowners and snacks and you can sail a beautiful hand crafted local dhow. It is imperative that a booking is made for this prior to your arrival, as we do not have our own dhow and prefer to support the local community, which takes some arranging. Sailing trip on this elegant wooden boat is an experience that all guests entering Mozambique should have!
Simply spectacular is the Sea Kayaking activity in the bay. Visit the pristine beaches situated between majestic rock formations. Pamper yourself with a delicious picnic delivery. Do not forget to kayak through the mangroves. An experience never to be forgotten.
Nuarro has 3 single and 2 double kayaks (Nomad Feelfree) sit on top sea kayaks that can either be taken by the confident paddlers for an early morning or sunset (or anytime) kayak.
Some guests have had some wonderful dolphin (and even whale) interactions on our sea kayaks in the past, so try your luck!
Guided tours through the mangroves … The mangrove trip departs by boat, which takes around 20 minutes to the entrance of the mangrove, where the kayak route will start for around 30-45 minutes. The tour can only be done between the tides to be able to see crabs, mudskippers and some birds, like the kingfisher.
Cultural Village Tour
From Nuarro you can easily go for a Cultural Village Tour and visit the local village of Nanatha where you can meet the local Macua population. Learn more about the work that Nuarro is doing, and how your stay at Nuarro contributes to the village and the community. Visit the school and meet the teachers. Have a tour through the Mosque, and wonder around to the football field, where you may be lucky enough to catch a competitive, but festive game!
The tour is taken by our community representative, Feliciano and takes around 1 hour, but you can really make this as long or as short as you like!
