Nungwi Beach, Nungwi

4.5
#1 of 19 in Beaches in Tanzania
With powdery white sand set against a stark blue backdrop, Nungwi Beach lies at the heart of a bustling fishing village. Its bright turquoise tide doesn't go too far out, making this a suitable place for swimming and snorkeling. Several local outfits on site arrange offshore snorkel and dive experiences. The beach's proximity to the main strip of eateries gives you a wide set of dining options, with views from the sand.

  • In the period between Christmas and Epiphany we stay at Nungwi, recommend it because besides having a beautiful beach there are many locals by the sea where you can eat delicious food and SIP a cold drink while enjoying a sunset glow. You can walk on the beach until you reach Kendwa, fantastic and relaxing beach or go from the opporsta of the lighthouse until Sazani Beach which in my view is the best beach of the area, and great for kite serfer.

  • zanzibar nungwi is the best area, I recommend staying here and eventually move to the various trips. Unlike the other places here are all kinds of activities and there is really nothing because it's organized very well. The only flaws are that in some spots of the beach is constantly assaulted by the beach boys and that there is low tide and in the South, but this one can safely enjoy hiking.

  • I travel a lot all over the world, this is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. I’m short for words to tell its beauty so enjoy the pictures.
  • The beaches at Nungwi are among the cleanest and whitest that the world has! Sunrises and Sunsets are all beauties plus the colourful waters. Star-gazing is also great here! People are friendly and very welcoming. Definitely a perfect place for a retreat and beach life experience. VISIT!!!!!!!!!
