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. We serve breakfast on request or you can make your own meals in our fully equipped self-catering kitchen.

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.

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.

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.
