Mozambique is fast becoming one of the most extraordinary fishing destinations in Africa and Bilene is definitely the place to be, not only for great fishing but also for some of the most breathtaking scenery in Mozambique. San Martinho Beach Club is the perfect spot for an unforgettable fishing holiday, offering year-round fishing either on the shores of the stunning Bilene lagoon or deep sea fishing on your jet ski or you can charter the resort’s ski boat if you didn’t bring your own boat! The resort’s resident skipper is also something of an angling legend and is eager to share the best spots to try your luck!
Get plenty of action from Big Game Fish such as Couta, Dorado, Sailfish and Barracuda when you head out to sea, where the size of the specimen caught usually doesn’t disappoint. Later in the year, you may even be treated to the sight of whales making their way down south. On the southern side of the lagoon mouth lies Turtle Bay, where Leather Back Turtles breed.
If you prefer a more relaxing day out fishing, try casting your line from the shores of Bilene Lagoon, as well as nearby unspoilt freshwater lakes such as Lake Sauce, Lake Gire, Lake Chissura and Lake Pab. More often than not, a scenic 4×4 or quad bike ride is all you need to reach these fishing hotspots.
