great place to unwind, low key yet wonderful, safe, lovely staff and magical atmosphere...lovely food and tranquil atmosphere, perfect pool for swimming as the sea was far too warm, fascinating to see local folk and fishermen at work

This was recommended by a friend of a friend, and I am glad we took it up. We arrived after dark by 4WD having driven from Kili area, but from the moment we arrived the manager Carys made us feel welcome and was very helpful. We immediately started to relaxed after our tiring journey, and enjoyed a very pleasant dinner.... More

We stayed at Peponi for three days during off-season and found a very quiet, relaxing and friendly place in the middle of palm trees, monkeys and the ocean. Unfortunately we could not do the snorkling trip (due to rain) but had great dinners in the restaurant and fun evenings with other guests as well as staff. The place has just... More

We stayed in one of the bandas before Christmas and had a great time. We were there for about three days and could happily have stayed longer. The owner and staff were very helpful with activities and entertaining us in the evenings. I would highly recommend the day trip out on the boat with snorkelling and the sand island, great... More

If you look for a quite place to relax, rest, Peponi beach is ideal! We started our trip in Tanzania with this place, this was a good choice to chill and forget about about daily stress of our normal lives before discovering the whole country. The team is really devoted, smiling, and the new manager also! The food quality is... More

A hidden gem situated near to Tanga - very handy if travelling from Arusha/Moshi - Dar or vice versa. Just a few hours off the main road and you're in a little paradise. Prices are very reasonable and food good - I recommend the chocolate brownie!

We booked into camping initially only for 1 night but instead ended up staying 3 nights. The staff are very friendly and helpful and under new management it seems they are trying to improve the place. We had a great snorkel trip to an offshore sand bank well worth it and food is cheap and tasty. Hope to be back... More
