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.

  • I travel a lot all over the world, this is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. I’m short for words to tell its beauty so enjoy the pictures.
  • The beaches at Nungwi are among the cleanest and whitest that the world has! Sunrises and Sunsets are all beauties plus the colourful waters. Star-gazing is also great here! People are friendly and very welcoming. Definitely a perfect place for a retreat and beach life experience. VISIT!!!!!!!!!
