On my opinion Kendwa beach is much better than more famous Nungwi beach. It is much cleaner and nicer to walk. It does not have seaweed or it is at least cleaned.

Beautiful beach. That you can swim in all day. So romantic place. In the village at sea there is a little school, if you want to donate or help. Ask about the headmaster mister oussi, the Kids sit on the floor

This is much better place to stay than Nungwi ...there are several resorts here and waters much calmer . Long stretch of sand beach that makes as troll at sunset such a memorable experience . There are many restaurants around too .

Loved this beach for its clear, warm waters and powdery white sand. Great for beach runs or beach sports/games. Would also like to mention the great driver I had who brought me to this part of the Island at a fairly reasonable rate. His name...More
