Hotels, Lodges & Resorts in Bilene Mozambique. Bilene is a popular holiday village situated on the banks of the salt water Sao Martinho Lagoon which is almost entirely seperated from the ocean by a large sandbar. A channel to the ocean from the lagoon at Bilene is kept open at all times and it is possible to take boat trips out to the ocean although the sandy beaches around the lagoon on the Bilene side are such that few people do.
There is nothing rushed about this place, its tranquil splendour unchanged over a thousand years!
