The beach is amazing, clear blue (warm) water and white sands - felt like paradise. Note there are sea urchins so take car in the water or wear water shoes.

I have seen a lot of questions about ATMs on the island outside of stone town. Stone Town has ATMs in abundance but outside it is not the case.

I can confirm there is an ATM near Kendwa Beach - we reached via taxi.

We stayed in Sunset Bungalows and a taxi to the ATM was 30,000 shillings for the return trip arranged via reception. The atm is located at a petrol station on Nwungi Road.

The max ATM withdrawal is 400,000 shillings. Worked with no issues when we visited - however it does charge a small fee (I used Revolut card).

Kendwa Beach is hands down one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to in Zanzibar. The beach has an exceptional environment consisting of warm local people, sumptuous sea food and drinks and vendors. The pristine white sand and crystal clear waters are equally enticing. A little bit of disclaimer is that you should seek the services of a professional tour guide lest you get lost in the sea of people at Kendwa. I recommend the services of Babli ( +255756983368), an extremely professional and committed guide.

After nungwi beach I can vote for kendwa beach the second prettiest,beautiful beach.stayed zuri Zanzibar hotel.its a private beach and the beach boys are not allowed to harass the guests different with nungwi beach.we were happy with the hotel everything wa perfect,the food,rooms and the staffs too.only the tours price was a bit high and we contacted Erick from with very nice and positive trip advisor recommendeations.his price was reasonable and the services was as it is recommended by other tourists who visited here before.
Anyone in kendwa who needs tours with transfer anytime you can call or WhatsApp the 🌟 boys,bably was our driver ,he was always on-time.

White powder sand, bath warm water, spotlessly clean and picture postcard jaw dropping. If you are going in the water, wear sea shoes. Lovely to sit and people watch. Beach vendors approach and call out but are not in your face, a polite smiley no thank you is fine. No need to be rude as some people were, they are trying to make a living.

Very beautiful. Not too busy. Very warm. Friendly people. Safe to leave your items and go for swim. Food and cocktails can be served in your seat. Water sport available and the most amazing Gelato. However, I don’t think it’s a necessity to hire. Take cash, card transactions are charged between 5-7%.

We stayed in kendwa rocks for 3 nights after staying in nungwi beach.both nungwi with kendwa are very beautiful and not affected by the tides but the difference nungwi is always crowded with pushy beach boys who hassle you all the time.

I recommend booking tours online to avoid the hawkers and the beach boys.

We booked all our transfers/tours with star Eric

We loved kendwa beach. We walked along to Nungwi beach which was so much busier- we much preferred the more relaxed kendwa atmosphere. Lots of nice restaurants and the beach was clean and good for swimming.

Lots of children and adults selling trips/souvenirs so be prepared!
