About Praia do Cossa

Praia do Cossa is ideally situated on the northern banks of the lagoon, just 7 km from the village of Bilene. You may be in Bilene, but you could just as well be on a remote island anywhere in the world.

That is the impression Praia do Cossa offers, as it is only a 70-metre walk to the white sandy lagoon beach where the calm and clear waters of the lagoon gradually slope away from the white beach, making swimming safe for the whole family.

The village of Bilene, the home of Praia do Cossa, known as San Martino in the days of Portuguese Mozambique, is located 180 km north of Maputo on a hill overlooking the expansive clear turquoise waters of the Uembje Lagoon. Praia do Cossa is a first-class self-catering resort on the northern banks of the lagoon comprising four units, which all have fantastic views, and situated within a 7 km drive from restaurants, pubs, bottle stores, garages, shops and the local market.

Bilene has a world of activities on offer for all ranges and ages; even the seasoned traveller will never be found wanting. This quaint seaside town offers an endless list outdoor action blueprinted to entertain, interest and even to challenge, with a scope that can appeal to all levels.

                                      Excellent! Cannot wait for the renovations to be completed - we're sure that it will be a stunner. We've enjoyed every second - will recommend the place without hesitation.

                                      The place is very far from normal activities and shops, it is convenient if you really want quietness and enjoy nature, the lagoon was really nice, and boat trips were great. The place is very clean and well kept, the staff is very friendly. I would go there again if it was not that far. The roads are not bad at all as I thought it will be. Overall good but very far from the boarder.
