What is Special?
Pestana Bazaruto Lodge is a good value for money option to consider and the most affordable island destination. Meal times are generally buffet and the accomodations are not as luxurious as some of the other island lodges, but then the price is also a lot more affordable. A great snorkelling experience at Dolphin Bay to which the Lodge provides daily shuttles.
Note that as with most beach and island properties the tidal movement is visible at Pestana Bazaruto Lodge. However, the Lodge has one of the most pronounced tidal movements which will result in no water in front of the lodge during low tide.
The nearest airport is at Vilanculos on the mainland. Island transfer flights are the only form of access to the island at the momemt. Boat transfers are not an option as the Lodge is situated the furtherest away from Vilanculos out of all the island properties.
