#1 of 19 in Beaches in Tanzania
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.

  • The beach is beautiful and clean, the water is crystal!
  • Excellent get away from stone town. Pros: wide array of restaurants and hotel to choose from. Clean water save for the seaweed. Sunset show cruise. Cons: far from town, need to arrange transport to and fro and the road is still under construction, tours and beach boys offering to sell you "stuff". Poor infrastructure in and around the resort/village can get very dusty on the way there
