Travessia is an Eco Beach Lodge that is all about understated barefoot-luxury, combining the best of bush and beach. Sophisticated whilst down to earth, with no-one around for miles, Travessia is for families, single travellers and couples alike.
Casa Baleia is a wooden/canvas construction on an elevated deck with 180° sea views, King bed and outdoor shower.
Rates include Breakfast & Dinner. Lunch is available at our restaurant. Contact us for special rates for families traveling with children.
Travessia Beach Lodge has been built with the open minded, experienced traveller in mind, who values authenticity over exclusivity. Our definition of luxury is abundance of space, authenticity of people and the availability of time to take it all in. Maintaining professional building standards is as important to us as keeping a healthy relationship with the surrounding community that has, indeed, become part of the Travessia family over the past few years.
The lodge comprises of three Casas that sleep two each and one Family Casa that sleeps four people, a restaurant and lounge area, beach bar with plunge pool and an endless beach.
Общение с гостями
To those, who just want to relax we recommend long walks on our endless beach, a lazy afternoon at the pool or simply taking a snooze in the hammock on your private deck with sea views.
Those who want to be a bit more active, we invite to explore the bush and our neighbourhood on foot with of our guides and perhaps receive an invite for tea or lunch.
We’ll happily organise snorkelling or diving day trips for you to Tofu or Inhambane. Or perhaps you just want to join us on one of our weekly shopping trips to Maxixe and browse the maze of the local market. You are unlikely to meet another tourist here.
We also recommend a day trip to the city of Inhambane, which is just 20 minutes by ferry across the lagoon from Maxixe. The boat ride in itself is an experience.
Transfers from and to Inhambane can be arranged on request.

Mozambique is Malaria country and suitable precautions are advisable. With or without Malaria prophylaxis, we recommend covering up as soon as the sun sets, particularly when travelling in more populated areas. All our beds have mosquito nets. In general, you might find less mosquitos at Travessia than elsewhere, because of regular treatments of our drainages and the soft breeze we enjoy most of our evenings. Malaria can be treated well if detected early but obviously, avoidance is key. Speak to us if you need more insider’s information.
Visitors to Mozambique require a Visa, unless they come from one of the Visa exempt countries, such as most of the countries from Southern Africa. Visas are no longer available on entry at the border. Please enquire at your local Mozambican embassy for more information.
My husband and I, together with our children have been living in Vredehoek in Cape Town for a number of years and love the suburb due to its friendly neighborhood feel with a few small restaurants and a well stocked shop in walking distance and generally friendly people. Our children are not going to school yet but are equally keen travelers as we are. We enjoy the outdoors, camping and exploring by foot, car or plane as much as we like the occasional cultural, culinary and creative experiences Cape Town has to offer. We often have friends and family from overseas to visit us and only started recently to offer our "garden flat" as we call it, to other people. Access is independent from our house which is one floor above. Since our house is build on a slope, the garden is slightly lower than the entrance from street level...
As your host we will leave you in peace with yourself but are happy to assist to the best of our abilities with whatever information or travel tips we have to share with you.
As a traveler, we are generally low maintenance and our kids are well behaved - our single or friends with no children can vouch for this!
