“Very close to Nungwi it's Kendwa beach. This place has an amazing beach for swimming, snorkelling, seing star fish and more. You can spend the day in kendwa Rocks, if you have lunch you can use their facilities which includes umbrellas, swimming pool and you won't regret it. How you reach there? You can take a taxi (no more than 10 min), a taxi boat or just have a nice walk from the beach. ”
