Travessia is an Eco Beach Lodge that is all about understated barefoot luxury. A mere one and a half hours drive from the airport of Inhambane, and just six-kilometre of the sand track away from the main road, the lodge is accessible enough for a long weekend break and yet remotely enough still to give you an instant cast-away feeling.
Take a walk on our endless beach, relax in the shade of our palm grove, paddle out or gaze at the sea from our rim-flow pool, or accept an invite from the neighbouring community. Sophisticated whilst down to earth, with no one around for miles, Travessia is for families, individual travellers and couples alike.
The lodge is built among the dunes along the beach, nestled between bush and palm trees and with carefully chosen spots to maximize privacy and sea views whilst maintaining proximity of the rooms to the lounge, restaurant and the beach. The buildings are constructed on elevated wooden decks with timber and roll-up canvas walls under a roof thatched with local makuti. Wooden walkways lead from the rooms to the lodge’s reception area and restaurant, with a lounge, bar and spacious deck, overlooking the palm grove and the sea. The lodge is entirely solar-powered – ensuring a light environmental footprint.
Our menu is inspired by what is in season and available at the local markets and shops. For fresh fish or crayfish, we like to rely on the local spear-fishermen. Whilst mango, pawpaw or avocado are seasonal, our coconuts are available all year round! A short walk from the restaurant takes you to our beach bar and pool deck. Here, you can stretch out on our locally made loungers whilst enjoying 360-degree views over the endless coastline and a sea of palm trees of the hinterland.
All rooms with sweeping sea views, all beds with mosquito nets, open plan bathroom, separate toilet, outdoor shower, private deck with hammock.

The Geography of Mozambique apprises a vast, low, grassland plateau which rises from the coast towards the mountains in the north and west covers nearly half the country's land area. The population is concentrated along the coast and the fertile river valleys. The Zambezi is the largest of the country's 25 rivers. Mozambique is rich in mineral resources such as gold, emeralds, copper, iron ore and bauxite and is currently engaged in oil exploration.
