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 kilometer of 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 neighboring community. Sophisticated whilst down to earth, with no-one around for miles, Travessia is for families, individual travelers and couples alike.
The architecture and atmosphere reflect a diverse and exciting past stretching back to the 11th century. Muslim and Persian traders visited here as did Vasco da Gama in the late 1500s. The port of Inhambane also later became a major centre for ivory and slave trade as well as whaling. This area is now one of the few in southern Mozambique where the last remaining Dugong can be seen.
