Trip Planner: Africa / Tanzania / Dar Es Salaam Region / Dar es Salaam / Mbudya Island
Unwind in the shade of luxuriant greenery on Mbudya Island, an uninhabited island with white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. Part of a marine reserve, the turquoise waters around the island provide excellent snorkeling opportunities with a great number of colorful fish. Several small hiking trails lead through thick forests, and you can extend your stay at one of the campgrounds on site. There are no hotels or snack bars, but you can have freshly caught fish or lobster grilled on the beach for you. A 25-minute motorboat ride will take you to the island from a local fishing community. Use our Dar es Salaam trip planner to add Mbudya Island and other attractions to your Dar es Salaam vacation plans.

It's really amazing there!!! Although the price to visit there is expensive but it worths so much if you just have only few days to spend in Dar Es Salaam. For me, I spent 20000tsh for the boat and 41000tsh for marine reserves entrance fee(I'm not sure if I was chatted), and I got the wonderful feeling of living in a small island in Indian Ocean. It's definitely amazing for me a person who grew in cities since I was borned. I will highly recommend every foreigner to visit there because it will make your Tanzania's trip unforgettable!!
Best beach experience of my life, the sand, the water 🙆, it was epic! The charity of the water is to die for, the clean sand🤸
