Bilene lies on the way to Inhambane from Maputo. This is a popular Mozambiquean holiday village and is situated on the banks of a beautiful lagoon. It is about 160km (99 miles) north of Maputo.
The lagoon is separated from the Indian Ocean by a large sandbar offering a protected area for all kinds of water sports and beach activities with good stretches of white sands and shallow, calm waters. 4x4 enthusiasts and those with boats can access the mouth of the lagoon and beach facing the sea.
Remember to stick to the roads and no riding on the beach!
