Ever thought about learning kitesurfing and helping the less privileged people at the same time? Non-profit VilanCool Beach Resort and Kite School offers you unforgettable holidays, must-see kite spots and the feeling of helping the local community.
VilanCool is a paradise for your relaxing holidays and best kite experiences and in parallel a social project to support local families. Every single Dollar we get we re-invest into education, employment and health of our local team.
This Fanpage is launched in favour of all people across the planet who are keen on getting unique travel experiences, are desperate for amazing natural escapes, who wanna learn more about the astonishing nature and people of Mozambique and who will enjoy activities in paradise. Vilanculos (or local name: Vilankulo) has been growing extensively over the last decade, and has been the recipient of considerable inward investment into its tourism infrastructure. The gateway to the archipelago is the town of Vilanculos for Dhow (local fisher boat) travel between the town and the Bazaruto Archipelago. The town itself is only about 5 km long filled with all the amenities needed to make your visit comfortable yet local. It is home to a new international airport, which serves daily flights to several regional destinations, including Johannesburg, Maputo, Swaziland, and elsewhere. Vilankulo has an array of options when it comes to bars (barracas) and restaurants. If you prefer something a little more exclusive there is a wide variety of exquisite lodges to visit. (Source: Ministry of Tourism) Vilanculos with 40 thousand inhabitants is currently one of the emerging Tourist Spots in Africa since the last 3 years. Providing a new airport (opened 2011) with daily connections to Johannesburg and many more destinations where meanwhile 200´000 tourists arrive p.a. From Diving and Kiteboarding, from Wale Watching to Game Reserve Safaris and from Dhow Safaris to Watersports, Vilanculos is providing a wide range of activities for tourists.
Missão: VilanCool is the home of Water Sport activities for professionals and beginners, families and lonely travellers, young and old while taking care of local people and nature in terms of social justice.
Jumping into 2020 with style! 🤙🏾 Vilan🆒 🇲🇿

Moreover, it supports our new project EVISTA Mozambique, a nursing home for locals. Every dollar you spend will be 100% re-invested into the project.🤟
SEE THE WHOLE STORY...from a rotten water well over discussing the idea with locals and building a water tower until today: Kids have access to fresh water.
Once more, thanks to VIVES for the support and all who support VilanCool by making holidays at our place, the awarded Mozambican social project and nonetheless a paradise to stay and best Kite School of Mozambique🤟
WATER FOR THE PEOPLE. Today we could open the new water tower for our neighborhood. VilanCool Water Sports says thank you to all our guests who are booking at us because they made this happen and so did VIVES and our local friends Jeff and the major of Vilanculos Wiliam. Muito obrigado 👍🙏
So many people care about us and send us messages if everything is fine. Vilanculos was not that much affected by the Cyclone as Beirra was. We pray for our friends and families in the North.
Sunset Kite at its best👍
IT‘S A GREAT HONOR AND AWARD! 3 Years ago he started with Kitesurfing, last year he became the 1st IKO certified Kitesurfing Instructor of all Mozambique and already now Nercio Freitas has been awarded as the best Instructor by IKO for February 2019👍

Congratulations Nércio De Freitas on being this weeks featured IKO Instructor! Keep sharing the stoke 🤙
Qualification: Instructor level 1
IKO Center: Vilanculos Kiteclub by VilanCool
From: Maureen Allen
What an incredible experience
We have been around many trainers in our past (for various activities) but I have to say that Nércio has to be one of the best trainers/instructors we have ever dealt with! He explains everything so well and is able to break the concepts down so that it is really easy to understand! His interaction with us is extremely professional and I felt confident in myself after he had demonstrated something! I can't wait to go back!!!!
Christmas Eve is over! Our IKO Kite Instructor Nercio Freitas finally got some time to improve his skills🤟
