Dining

Dining at Ossimba Beach Lodge is an intriguing experience, with a menu that fuses both local and international flavours. Only the freshest ingredients are sourced locally, from land and sea, while a selection of local beers and an extensive list of wines and spirits are the perfect accompaniment to a memorable meal. Recharge by taking a dip in the lodge swimming pool, and then visit the Sunset Bar where carefully created cocktails accompany the mesmerizing view of the Nacala granite mountains across the bay.

Activities

A marine protected coral reef just a few metres out from the lodge, makes scuba diving an absolute must when visiting Ossimba. The lodge has a inflatable, semi-ridged 6.5 metre Gemini dive boat, powered by two 60 hp Yamaha motors, and fitted with GPS, VHF radio and all the necessary safety equipment. There are various wrecks and locations suitable for any diver, from the anxious beginner to the experienced explorer. Divers are bound to be awestruck by the bright and beautiful underwater coral community teeming with marvelous marine life. Expect to come face to face with a diverse collection of reef fish, shrimps, moray eels, turtles and even the sort after Nudibranch! The reefs on the northern side of Mozambique near Nacala Bay are known to be the most beautiful in the country.
