Nungwi – Kendwa
Nungwi is the biggest fishermen’s village of the island and it is famous for its crystal clear sea, pristine coves and the factory where dhows, the local boats, are produced. Here you will have the chance to admire the magnificent sunset and bathe in the sea until late.
In the area there are numerous diving centres and this is an ideal place for long baths as the tide is not as pronounced as in other parts of the island.
There is no reef visible – as is instead the case on the east coast – and you can enjoy parasailing.

After reaching the shore, you will relax in a cosy restaurant directly by the sea, where you will enjoy a typical lunch.
