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.

  • Fantastic beach, blue water and not so much tide, enjoy
  • Beautiful beach with white thin sand and transparent water. Lots of rocks and coral to get some shadow too! You can easily find some great shells.
  • Wasn't the best beach i have seen but it was alright to many beach Boys and the beach was really dirty.
  • Interesting walks ip and down the beach. Good for swimming although slightly concerned about what the cattle left behind in the water.
  • Spectacular beach with many restaurant options and zero waves
