Visitor Reviews

Visitor reviews highlight the amazing sunset and many beach activities available at the public beach, but it can get crowded. Visitors suggest more security guards should be present as some locals were intrusive and evading personal spaces clicking pictures without permission, which tarnishes the tourist spot's reputation. Fewer tourists at Nungwi Beach provide amazing views of the Indian Ocean, but visitors suggest using water shoes and being cautious as a solo female traveler. Zanzabar has the most beautiful beaches and waters, while September 2004 review suggests it's the best place to relax after Kilimanjaro climb. The public beach is beautiful, with white sand and turquoise water.
