trip to the beach

The beach is accessible via a road through the village & over the dunes. 

Directions: Leave out the back of the resort, turn right and first left into the village. Carry on straight out the village, follow the road up & over the dunes. There are multiple paths that branch off, however they all lead to the beach. 

Disclaimer: You will need a 4x4 to travel this route, however it is not for the novice offroader as there is a lot of soft sand. Be sure to adjust tyre pressure, as well as make sure of the timing of the tides.

This is a prime spot for shore angling, swimming, sunbathing or pack a cooler and enjoy some sundowners at the koppie to the right of the beach. 

Disclaimer: There are no life guards on the beach.

  • There are three shops for the replenishment of very basic food stuffs (toiletries, water, & basic dry goods).

  • Fresh fish & prawns can be bought from local fishermen in the village. However, they will often come round to the resort in the mornings to sell.​

Trip to the Mouth

Pack your coolers, gazebo & beach games its time to take a trip to the mouth of the lagoon. This can be done by booking a trip out on our pontoon boat (maximum 12 persons), which includes a skipper & drinks arranged through the bar. This is a perfect option for those who would like to enjoy a slow cruise to the mouth & back, & be spoilt with the stunning sunset on your return.

 

Alternatively you can drive from the Village of Nhabanga back to Praia do Bilene (approximately 11km) & charter a small boat/ferry across from the PetroMoc Service Station at a nominal fee. Safe parking for your vehicle is available at the PetroMoc service Station. Please tip the car guards.

Should you have your own boat or Jet Ski it is advisable to navigate to Praia do Bilene & ask for a skipper to escort you through the correct channel in getting to the mouth safely, as there are a lot of sand banks that shift with the tides.
