Snorkel and swim with dolphins at Nakupenda Beach, a wide stretch of white sand gently sloping into turquoise waters. Rent equipment from the beach's diving center and venture into the waters to see the multicolored marine life. Alternatively, take a boat cruise or go reef game fishing. You can play with and feed tortoises and watch peacocks in the lush greenery behind the beach. Tents on site prepare fresh seafood dishes.
