Flamingo Bay is a unique water lodge on the Barra Peninsula which is located in a pristine estuary running parallel to Barra beach. While Flamingo Bay might not be located on the beach, it offers a peaceful environment, and crystal clear waters in which the chalets stand on stilts. When the tide is out one can stroll in the sand left by the estuary’s tidal flow and watch the crabs scuttle by.
Accommodation is in Water Chalets, built on stilts and that accommodate a maximum of two people, are fully airconditioned with mosquito nets, a lounger, patio with chairs, outside and inside shower. From the decking surrounding the lodge or from your own balcony, you can watch the fish and crabs swimming in the estuary, or snorkel straight from your chalet to join them in their underwater world during high tide.
Flamino Bay is the sister property of Barra Lodge and all activities can be done from there.
