Beautiful beach. That you can swim in all day. So romantic place. In the village at sea there is a little school, if you want to donate or help. Ask about the headmaster mister oussi, the Kids sit on the floor

This is much better place to stay than Nungwi ...there are several resorts here and waters much calmer . Long stretch of sand beach that makes as troll at sunset such a memorable experience . There are many restaurants around too .

Never in my life, have I seen such white sand beaches and clear blue sea as I did in Kendwa Beach. It was just beautiful. I'll definitely be returning as many times as I can.

Nice area for entertaining water toys for all ages. A bit crowded but room enough. Take sunscreen. Clear waters for swimming. One of the few places where the tide doesn’t really change. Clean. Some hawkers but not demanding. Food choices in several places.
