Diving at Nuarro - Life is Good Underwater

Nuarro is in the Nanatha Half Moon Bay at the southern point of the larger Memba Bay on the Baixo do Pinda Peninsula. The peninsula is linked to the mainland by a kilometre-long spit and is very close to the continental shelf. Nanatha Bay allows divers entry from the shore and provides a natural buffer against the prevailing currents. It has a gradually sloping bottom topography that slips away towards the start of the shelf, which sits just 200m from the beach. Dive conditions are usually good because Nuarro is protected from the prevailing winds. Visibility can be greater than 40m and never falls below 10m as there is no run-off from rivers, for one thing.

Nuarro will also soon be unveiling a new bush and beach path to explore! Why not start your adventure with a bush picnic or a bush breakfast. Explore the newly accessed private beaches and the beautiful sites by bike or our well-travelled landcruiser followed by tea / coffee on the salt pans or a gin tonic on one of the private beaches.
