Coral Beach comprises 3 privately owned self-catering houses in Barra, situated high on the dune overlooking the sparkling blue ocean which stretches endlessly across to the horizon and to the distant town of Tofo on the right.

During the winter months, the playful Humpback Whales fin past, close to the shoreline, blowing large frothy sprays of water as they frolic and play in the warm waters.

The accommodation at Coral Beach is provided in three self catering houses (all next to each other), each with 4 spacious bedrooms, en-suite bathrooms, open plan kitchen/dining area and a large entertainment deck with those out-of-this-world sea views. The bedrooms are privately accessed via the undercover walkway which leads off the entertainment deck (they are not accessed from the kitchen/lounge area). Each deck has a small private splash pool to enjoy during the hot summer dahs.

The deserted beach is approximately 30-40m down the dune in front of the houses. Languid hours can be spent collecting colourful seashells and intricate and interesting chunks of coral, washed ashore from the many reefs in the area. Scuba divers from far and wide flock to the area to enjoy the vast array of sea life feeding off and sheltering in these pristine reefs.

Coral Beach is situated within close proximity to the numerous restaurants and beach bars in Barra and to the vibey little town of Tofo.  Definitely worth a visit, (if you manage to lure yourself away from the fabulous Barra beaches). Tofo has a beautiful swimming beach and an interesting market stocked with vibrant sarongs, paintings, wooden curios and seasonal fruit and vegetables.

We really enjoyed our stay at Coral Beach.  Beautiful house with fantastic views of the ocean. Started each day with a coffee on the patio and whale watching.

Deon (caretaker)got in touch to ensure we were having a safe trip and gave directions to the house. Upon our arrival we were welcomed by friendly staff who took care of all the unpacking. Daily cleaning services ensured we all had a well-deserved rest. We can recommend Coral Beach to anyone planning to take a trip to Barra……and we are already planning to take family back in 2023 !!

We enjoyed the house and the view. It was a great time and Alberto was very kind! As a suggestion of improvement the house needs more lights special in the kitchen and living room and also on the balcony.

It was incredible, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

A BIG thank you to Up And Go for making our stay at Coral beach an unforgettable holiday. The views were out of this world, and being able to overlook the ocean from the pool was a real treat. Thank you to the staff for ensuring our rooms were always clean and tidy and to the security for keeping us safe. However some rooms struggled with toilets not being able to flush as well as not having hot water. The walk down to the beach was a little tricky, so would be lovely if the beach was more accessible. All in all I highly recommend Coral Beach as a holiday destination for any beachbum!
