“I have great memories with family in this paradise place. We always made plans each year and were always delighted with each visit. The lagoon is very calm with no waves and good for children. There are plenty of accommodation options and boat trips. Now that I’m living in England and looking at the photos I have on my laptop, only tears of joy fall from my eyes remembering the beautiful days I spent there with family,” Seifnn from Leicester, UK wrote.
One visitor from Pretoria recommends Bilene to those looking for a quiet holiday experience and posted this review on Trip advisor, “BIlene, some 180km north of Maputo, is on the shore of a wonderful scenic lagoon. The beach is one of the whitest and most beautiful I have seen in Mozambique. I have stayed at Praia do Sol while I was in the town. Quite a nice place, but not luxurious. Really great outdoor bar with (very) small pool. There are however, plenty of other accommodation choices in this town. The best thing about Bilene is that you can easily get there with any vehicle, as the road is tarred road all the way. I recommend the town of BIlene for first timers to Mozambique who want a quiet holiday. The town is not exactly known for parties and wild adventure outings.”
