Nungwi beach(es) are the best beaches if you like to swim. Without walking on the reef for a long distance. There are also many nice restaurants where you can have a drink or something to eat.

The beach has clean blue waters. It is refreshing to swim at that beach. The restaurant has a good menu and variety of drinks.

Even there are nice hotels some lack proper beach. On this one you can have a swim regardless if there is low or high tide. And also good for watersports. You can book cheap tours . Snorkeling tours are also departing from that particular beach....More

It's a safe place. Make negotiations for everything not only for taxis. For breakfast you can eat on the beach, there is some restaurants &the night try the strit food at all mana. Be sure is not raining season.
