About
Description
Imagine wandering from your self-contained beach cottage on a lush tropical garden setting, onto a 2.5km stretch of unspoilt beach. Only 40km from the Kigamboni ferry, the Lighthouse Beach Resort is a ...More great holiday lifestyle for families, couples, small groups and businessmen because of its location and accessibility. Come and spend your weekend or holiday at The Lighthouse Beach Resort. A short 40 km south of Kigamboni, you’ll find your "Home away from home" – our natural beach paradise. We have family bungalows and spacious double rooms, all with a good comfort!Our restaurant will give you mouth watering meals, even on the 2,5 km long white sandy beach! In the evening you’ll enjoy the sunset from our 360º roof top terrace, with ice cold refreshments and snacks before dinner. It is also ideal for tourists who don’t really want to stay in isolated beach resorts on far away islands, but still want to be near them. The resort is almost directly on the beach, with the view of the lighthouse which it is named after. Welcome for a memorable stay! Less
