Location is very good - just on the very beautiful beach. Food is rather good. Maybe not everything, but tuna steak we ordered rare was awesome. RIght like we love. And the prices are pretty low compare to other beach restaurants nearbyMore

Description
KENDWA ROCKS Beach Hotel is one hour drive from Zanzibar Town towards the northern tip of the island. The road descends to one of the most fantastic beaches of East Africa. From the beach you see the lighthouse of nearby Tumbatu Island. Sunbathing may be enough, but you can also do snorkelling, diving or fishing and enjoy small boat trips on the turquoise waters. Beautiful sunsets are everyday thrill and moonlit nights on the white coral and seashell beach make an unforgettable experience. The choice of accomodation is ample: choose a luxurious wooden bungalow with its own jacuzzi, a spacious suite or one of our Arabia or Africa themed rooms, a coral bungalow or the more economical forest rooms! The rooms are surrounded by coconut trees and lush tropical gardens. KARIBU KENDWA ROCKS...!!!
