Pictures from Kendwa on the North Coast of Zanzibar Island: beaches and hotels. 

Kendwa on the North Coast of Zanzibar
Beach in Kendwa on the North Coast of Zanzibar Island.

Kendwa is the little sister of Nungwi, just 3 km further on the northwestern coast of Zanzibar Island. Nungwi and Kendwa join together to form one of the most popular tourist destinations in Zanzibar. In
Kendwa like in Nungwi, holidaymakers take advantage of immense white sandy beaches protected by the coral reef. Beyond Kendwa, the coral reef does not extend more than on a dozen kilometers along the West Coast of Zanzibar.

Like Nungwi, Kendwa is therefore a favorite beach resort  for tourists who completed safaris to national parks in East Africa or who simply are looking for better weather conditions than the cold winter in the northern hemisphere.
But Kendwa is calmer and more intimate than Nungwi. Its development is more recent. Its hotels are usually a bit cheaper and several of them are all-inclusive. Kendwa beaches offer the opportunity to swim both at low and high tides (while swimming is generally not possible at low tide on the East Coast of the island).
A few kilometers off the coast of Kendwa is Tumbatu Island. Cultural day trips to Tumbatu can be organized from Kendwa, although mass tourism is not welcome.
