Overview

Villa Espanhola offers stylish, but affordable accommodation in 8 Tuscan style studio units. Our open plan thatch dining area creates a homely atmosphere which overlooks Bilene's lagoon with warm crystal clear water, a mini-Mediterranean in Africa. You can choose for a Bed-and-breakfast or selfcatering room. Exclusive use of the lodge allows for self-catering accommodation.

Villa Espanhola is your choice holiday destination when it comes to location, perfectly situated away from the noisy town, but a stone's throw away from the lagoon. The semi private beach is a mere 50m from the lodge offering safe swimming along the shallow calm shores. The lagoon offers perfect conditions for any water sport and boating activities. We warmly invite you to come and enjoy our majestic sunsets, beautiful stars and tranquil beaches.



Villa Espanhola is situated on the outskirts of the village of Bilene, Gaza province, Mozambique. Bilene is nestled next to the wonderful 27 km long San Martin lagoon (Lagoa Uembje) and is easy accessible to visitors on good tarred roads. Turning off 160 km north of Maputo (Mozambique's capitol) at the town of Macia you will travel a further 30km to reach Bilene. It is the closest Mozambican beach resort to Johannesburg, and attracts many South African visitors during the holiday seasons.

Although Bilene is an ideal Mozambique holiday destination on its own, it also serves as a good stop over point for those travelling to destinations such as Xai Xai, Inhambane and the Bazaruto Archipelago. The town has numerous restaurants and bars as well as a weekend disco. Petrol and diesel are both available at Praia do Bilene. There are also various simple shops and a small colourful market where very basic products can be bought.

The 27km long and 5 km wide lagoon is an ideal family spot with long white stretches of sand for beach games and shallow, calm water for safe swimming. The lagoon does plunge up to depths of 50 meters, but is so shallow near the shores that it's perfect for children. Bilene is particularly popular for water sports enthusiasts, from jet-ski's, water-skiing and parasailing, to non-motorized sports such as paddle-ski's, and windsurfing.

The mouth of the lagoon, usually blocked by a massive sand bank, is best reached by boat but a long difficult 4X4 track does allow access to the beach. Yearly the mouth is opened manually by 300 locals, preceded by a ceremony where the chief of the area bless the ritual.

Other popular activities in Bilene include decent fishing, sailing, diving both in the lagoon and the open ocean, kayaking, hiking, canoeing, wake boarding, snorkeling as well as whale watching and boat rides. There are some lovely off road routes around the lake system as well, with great quad bike trails. A 35 km ride through villages and inland lakes go as far as the Limpopo River Mouth. Birders also enjoy the birdlife, with large populations of flamingos and various other water birds visiting the area in the summer months searching the shallow fringes of the water for food, adding a true tropical paradise feel to the region.

We will gladly provide information and maps to assist in planning and organizing your activities, but strongly advise to bring your own equipment for motorized sports.

Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.
